The LPGA is a professional golf organization for women, the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) is headquartered in Daytona Beach, Florida. The organization is best known for operating the LPGA Tour, which attracts the best female golfers in the world to compete in weekly golf tournaments from February to December each year.
In 1944, the first women’s golf association was established. Though the organization only lasted five years, until 1949, the Women’s Professional Golf Association (WPGA) proved in its brief history that a professional women’s organization was needed.
The Ladies Professional Golf Association was founded in 1950 by 13 courageous women who wanted to play golf. The organization struggled to establish a year-long circuit of tournaments, but the founders’ dream of establishing a teaching division was realized in 1959.
In 1963, the Ladies Professional Golf Association received its first television coverage during the final round of the U.S. Women’s Open Championship. By the end of the 1960s, prize money had grown to $600,000 and there were 34 women’s golf events on the schedule.
