DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - The LPGA Tour is returning to Michigan for the first time in more than a decade.
LPGA Tour commissioner Michael Whan announced an addition to the 2014 schedule with the Meijer LPGA Classic. It will be played Aug. 7-10 at Blythefield Country Club in Grand Rapids.
The $1.5 million tournament will be a full field of 144 players over 72 holes.
The LPGA Tour hasn't been in Michigan since the Oldsmobile Classic was played in 2000 in East Lansing.
Meijer is a Michigan-based chain that started as a grocery store in the 1930s. The tournament is to coincide with the retailer's ''Simply Give'' program, which has generated $6.5 million for food pantries in the region.
