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.
