The Brighter Side of LPGA Management

For all of the beating that LPGA Commissioner Carolyn Bivens has taken the last year-and-a-half, Golf World’s Ron Sirak says that the ladies tour is in some way ahead of the men’s.

The LPGA, for example pioneered pro golf’s new playoff format with the ADT Championship. And it’s ahead of the PGA Tour in drug testing. Sirak even insinuates that the LPGA may have more starpower than the PGA—and certainly more than the Champions or Nationwide tours.

But the focus of the piece is on the drug testing, which Sirak says must be instituted sooner rather than later; he calls for the two tours to cooperate on the process.

It’s an interesting read.
