Se Ri Pak, the 34-year-old LPGA golf star from South Korea, had a nice return to the tour yesterday.

Playing for the first time since injuring her left shoulder in early April of this year, Pak shot a 1-under 71 to become the front-runner after the second round of the LPGA Championship in Pittsford, New York.

The shocker of the tournament on Friday was the retirement of Grace Park. The 33-year-old had some success on the LPGA Tour with six wins and a majors win, the Kraft Nabisco Championship in 2004.

Pak is at a 3-under-par 141, one shot ahead of Inbee Park (70), Paula Creamer (72), Mika Miyazato (72) and Sandra Gal (71).

The LPGA Tour, like all professional sporting leagues, have been hurt somewhat by the up-and-down economy, seems to be on the rebound in 2012 with the addition of four tournaments, three in the USA.

Commissioner Mike Whan deleivered a schedule of 27 tournaments worth $47 million, 36.8 million in euros in prize money.

Also improving in the schedule will be the elimination of long droughts.

In 2011, the LPGA Tour went three weeks between the Kraft Nabisco Championship until its next event. This season, even with all of the travel over the globe to 12 countries, the tour will not go more than two weeks in between events.

Returning the LPGA schedule will be two popular events in Ohio and Virginia.

The Jamie Farr Toledo Classic, which was not played a year ago due to the Inverness course also hosting the Senior U.S. Open. Also returning is the Kingsmill Resort tournament in Williamsburg, Virginia. It has not been on the schedule since 2009.

With the season-opening Women’s Australian Open, there are tournaments in Hawaii and Canada.

The Women’s British Open, was moved back a month due to the London Olympics. It’ll be held at Royal Liverpool on September 13-16.

Commissioner Whan said the only tournament lost from the schedule is the State Farm Classic in Illinois.
