The Ladies Professional Golfers Association (LPGA) has been notified by the Chinese that the golf tournament scheduled for September 29-October 2 in China has been canceled.

The tour said it received notice from the China Golf Association on Monday that the event, scheduled in the Guangdong province Imperial Springs Golf Club, was not going to take place.

The tournament was originally scheduled for August but was postponed to give the title sponsor and tournament organizers more time to clear up issues and add additional sponsors.

This the second time the LPGA Tour has had to cancel an event in 2011.

Earlier in the season, the tour had to cancel the Tres Marias Championship in Morelia, Mexico due to concerns over fears of drug violence.

The LPGA has had several years of  an evaporating schedule. It used to have as many as 36 events. This year they had 25 events scheduled but will end up with 23. The tour used to come to Ohio four times a year in Toledo, Columbus, Youngstown and Dayton. Now Toledo is the only stop. This year, however the Jamie Farr Classic did not take place due to the same organizers had to put on the U.S. Senior Open and could not put on two events in the same month.

Langer shoots final-round 69; wins Boeing Classic in Washington

Bernhard Langer has played well in the Champions Tour events played in Washington.

Langer capped off a sweep of Seattle with a final-round 69 as he pulled away from Nick Price down the stretch to win the Boeing Classic on Sunday at the TPC Snoqualmie Ridge in Snoqualmie, Washington.

Langer finished the tournament at 18-under-par 198 to earn his fifth Champions tour win in 2010, and his second in the greater Seattle area this summer after winning the U.S. Senior Open at Sahalee Country Club in Sammamish, Washington in July. His score matched Loren Roberts’ tournament record from 2009.

In his last three tournaments in the state of Washington, Langer’s won twice and finished tied for third at the Boeing Classic in 2009.

Hometown favorite Fred Couples closed with a 67 to finish in third place at 9-under. He struggled somewhat down the stretch on Saturday, shooting 4-over-par on Numbers 15, 16 and 17 to fall out of contention. The Seattle native received a huge ovation from the crowd when he left the 18 green after making a birdie.

Nick Price finished Sunday with a 71 and couldn’t shoot enough birdies to stay with Langer.

Langer was leading by two shots after a bogey at Number 11, but made consecutive birdies on Numbers 15 and 16 to push his lead to four shots with just two to play.

Tommy Armour III leads after round one of 3-M Championship

Tommy Armour III had a very productive round on Friday.

Friday was a perfect day for golf; temperatures were in the low-80′s, with partly cloudy skies and very little wind. 45 of the 78 players finished under par.

Armour, who only had two victories in over 20 years on the PGA Tour, has three second-place finishes in 12 previous starts during his rookie year on the Champions Tour. He finished 8th at the Senior British Open and 11th at the U.S. Senior Open.

Starting on the back nine, Armour birdied three of his first four holes and added another at number 18. Birdies on the 2nd and 3rd holes moved him to 6-under par, before he birdied his last three holes. Armour, who ranks 10th in tour putting average, one-putted for seven of his birdies.

Hometown favorite Couples ties Langer for lead with 65

On Saturday, at the Sahalee Country Club in Sammamish, Washington, the hometown boy Fred Couples got his golf game going to the delight of the crowd.

Couples shot a bogey-free 5-under-par 65, surging into a share of the U.S. Senior Open lead with Bernhard Langer.

Couples, using the hometown crowd to his advantage, made five birdies and posted the lowest score of the week.

Langer, who won the Senior British Open at Carnoustie, Scotland last week, shot a 68 on Saturday, posting his third straight round of golf in the 60′s.

Couples made birdies at numbers 2,5,7 and 9.

Couples’ round was bogey-free and it was his best score since shooting a 63 in the first round of a Champions Tour tournament in late April. His 31 on the front nine could have been lower if he had not missed a short putt on the fourth hole.

Bernhard Langer takes the early second round lead with a 68

German golfer Bernhard Langer overcame a shaky start on the front nine Friday with an eagle and birdie on the inward half to take the lead at 3-under-par in the second round of the U.S. Senior Open in Sammamish, Washington.

After a fog delay of more than two hours brought play to a complete halt just before 8 a.m., Langer shot a 2-under-par 68 making several key putts on the back nine when his round almost slipped away.

Langer is coming off a win last week in the Senior British Open at Carnoustie, Scotland, eight time zones away from the state of Washington.

If Langer is successful again this week, he would become the first golfer on the champions tour to win consecutive major tournaments since Tom Watson in 2003 in the Senior British Open and Tradition.

But Watson didn’t win those titles with eight time zones in between.

First round leader Bruce Vaughan, who shot a 66, fell way out of contention with an 82.

J.R. Roth, had a 66, the best round of the day.

John Cook (68) and Tommy Armour III (68) also were at 1 under par.
