The PGA Tour had its strongest fields of the year when it ended three months of being shut down because of the COVID-19 pandemic. That isn't the case with the LPGA Tour, which is more about timing and location.
The LPGA Tour ends more than five months without a tournament this week at the LPGA Drive On Championship at Inverness in Toledo, Ohio. It's a one-time event at the site of next year's Solheim Cup, featuring a 144-player field.
But it only has 134 players, a list that includes Laura Diaz, whose last full season was in 2015, and 55-year-old Kris Tschetter, who has played only two LPGA events since 2011.
The field includes American stars like Lexi Thompson, Nelly and Jessica Korda, and Danielle Kang. Missing are top players from South Korea. Jin Young Ko, Inbee Park and Jeongeun Lee6 are among those playing the Korean LPGA this week.
But while the PGA Tour is in its eighth week of a domestic schedule, the LPGA has two weeks in Ohio before it heads to Scotland for two tournaments - including its first major at the Women's British Open.
