I live near Kelly Robbins hometown in Michigan. It is fairly common knowledge around here that she is a lesbian. As a matter of fact, Karrie Webb has been here with her, and I have been told by others that they have/are dating.
(edit: Karrie Webb and Kelly Robbins were outed by a journalist for the Australian newspaper The Age who turned up to interview Karrie, but Karrie and Kelly were unaware that the appointment time had been changed. It is now accepted as fact.)
Ben Wright has assessed the situation succinctly, although he was dismissed from his post as an announcer for venturing such politically incorrect statistics. If memory serves me correctly, the figure mentioned was in the 40% range of all LPGA golfers; hence the euphemism Lesbian Professional Golfer's Association (for LPGA).
It is a arena that allows Asian lesbians the opp to "come out". The new crop of young Americans seem to be mostly straight. Cramer, Natl,Morgan,Wie. But some of the older Ladies I wonder? Inkster? Christie Kerr no she looks better than ever now and she is not gay at this point in her life
I am not sure if they played on LPGA but lesbian golfers are here in the list:
A better question is, how many straight golfers on the LPGA tour.
Umm almost every single LPGA they want the experience thankyou and have a nice lesbian or gay day like me;))
The sport of golf is played in the LPGA.
Wikianswers is not here for users to list sexual orientations.
No. In 1999 the LPGA established a new policy allowing the top three money winners of the Futures Tour to automatically get their LPGA "Exempt Status" tour card. There are not many events on the Futures Tour as the Nationwide Tour (19 in 2007)
Sophie Gustafson is a Swedish professional golfer. She is a member of U.S.-based LPGA Tour and a life member of the Ladies European Tour. She has five LPGA Tour and 23 international wins in her career.
Dottie Pepper is an American born ladies professional golfer, who enjoyed great success on the LPGA Tour. She now commentates on PGA and LPGA Tour golf.
On the LPGA tour the courses usually play about 6300 or 6400 yards
She was the LPGA Tour's Sybase Classic in 2005, this was her first victory.
There are several ways to earn an LPGA Tour Card. One is by going through the qualifying tournament, known as Q-school, a grueling multiday tournament. Another is by placing in the top five of the Duramed Futures Tour. Another is by finishing in the top 80 of the LPGA's money list. (The rule used to allow the top 90, but it was recently changed to 80.)
Althea Gibson was the first African-American LPGATour member, joining in 1963.
Should say Canadian (Quebec) lpga golfer Maude Aimee Leblanc with 282 . yards.
they get paid depending on how many tournaments they play in and how well they play in those tournaments. The average salary for a LPGA player is $35,337.32!!!!!!!!
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.
The proper noun anagram is Portugal. The letters also spell "LPGA Tour."
Nancy Lopez is a professional golfer. Her first full season on the LPGA Tour was in 1978.
Yes, and they are very popular. You will rarely find a PGA Tour pro who doesn't use one. On the Champion's Tour and LPGA/LET Tour they are extremely popular, with players having at least one, but some players carry as many as 3.
There is a large gap between the winnings of an PGA Tour player and an LPGA Tour player. The average winners cheque on the PGA Tour is around 3 times as much as one on the LPGA Tour. Compare the 2010 US Open with the Women's US Open, Graeme McDowell won $1.35 million for his win whereas Paula Creamer won $585,000. There is also a large gap between the money paid for sponsorship deals with male golfer typically earning far more as they are more desirable for most brands. The LPGA Tour is still struggling for sponsorship of events, that's why the purses are smaller. A lot of events were lost last year with just about an event every 2 weeks, whereas the PGA Tour held an event every week.
The LPGA was founded in 1950
LPGA was created in 1950.
No, the professional golfer from the LPGA tour and the two-time Cy Young Award-winning pitcher for the San Francisco Giants are not related.
