DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - The LPGA Tour has a new tournament this year that will be played in The Bahamas.

Commissioner Mike Whan said Monday that Pure Silk will be the title sponsor of the Bahamas LPGA Classic, to be played May 23-26 at Ocean Club Golf Course at Atlantis in Paradise Islands. The 72-hole event will have a $1.3 million purse.

Whan says there are few things more enjoyable for a commissioner than to tell his players they're going to The Bahamas for Memorial Day weekend.

Pure Silk also signed on as an official marketing partner of the LPGA. The company that makes shaving cream for women already had deals with players such as Stacy Lewis, Natalie Gulbis and Brittany Lincicome.

The full LPGA schedule is expected to be announced later this week.
