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.

Two days after becoming the youngest winner on the LPGA Tour, 16-year-old Lexi Thompson is planning on petitioning for an exemption to the tour’s 18-year-old age requirement.

Currently, Thompson is getting ready to play in the Solheim Cup in Ireland, this coming weekend.

LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan says he’ll consider the petition.

Thompson shot 17 under to win the Navistar LPGA Classic last weekend, making her the youngest champion by more than two years.

In 15 months since turning professional, Thompson has played in 14 events, with three top-10 finishes and has earned more than $500,000.

Thompson is also the youngest player to qualify for the U.S. Open, as a 12-year-old in 2007.
