Best Answer

The LPGA is the Ladies tour, where as the PGA is for men. The Ladies tour would occasionally only play 54 holes, whereas the PGA Tour always plays 72 unless there is a washout or bad weather. The Ladies tour also plays shorter holes than the men would. Unfortunately the Ladies tour isn't as popular as the mens game so there is quite a lot less money in the prize funds and the galleries would not be as big.
