The Ladies European Tour unveiled their 2010 Schedule yesterday, revealing a calender that can best be described as "Around the World in 27 tournaments."
I say that because the 27 events on the LET's 2010 list encompass an amazing 20 different countries. And these are countries as culturally distinct as they are distant from each other.
The Tour's Executive Director, Alexandra Armas, announced the 2010 schedule yesterday, pointing to four new stops - New Zealand, Morocco, Slovakia and China - as well as the return events in Turkey and Scotland. These stops were on a hiatus for the 2009 season, which saw 23 tournaments in 18 countries.
Ms. Armas spoke of a massive interest in hosting a Ladies European Tour event, despite the challenges of today's financial climate, and thanked partners and sponsors for their continued commitment to the LET, and to women's golf. She also acknowledged the players for their efforts in making each tournament memorable, exciting and unique.
I'll be working on two projects in Europe in 2010 and look forward to writing about these tournaments, their unique venues and the people who make them happen.
