State Farm won’t renew its sponsorship of what’s now known as the LPGA State Farm Classic. This year—the last in the deal—is set for June 9 – 11 in Illinois. It doesn’t seem to be a specific slight to the LPGA, though. State Farm also apparently is backing out of its deals with the NCAA and the NFL.
Still, the question remains whether LPGA Commissioner can find a replacement by next year. The LPGA will survive, but given the troubles it has, I think it’s a fair question to ask: in what form?
