The LPGA Tour continued its turnaround Friday by announcing a 2014 schedule with four new tournaments.
Next year's schedule will feature 32 official tournaments, up from 23 official events two years ago. Total prize money is now $56.3 million, an average of about $1.75 million per tournament. The schedule includes the International Crown, a unique competition of eight countries that gives players from outside the United States and Europe a chance to compete for their flags.
The schedule parts with the Pure Silk Bahamas Challenge the third week in January before going to Australia and Asia. After the five majors, the tour returns to Asia for six straight events before wrapping up at the LPGA Titleholders.
