After a brief break from the LPGA, we’ll be covering this entire week the Wendy’s Championship for Children. Wendy’s is a great tournament at Tartan Fields in Dublin, OH, and boasts just about all the Top players, such as Annika, Cristie Kerr, Paula Creamer, Natalie Gulbis. It also has amateur Morgan Pressel (but Michelle Wie’s back to school).

TGB’s Douglas has already mentioned some of the Joys of watching LPGA events. One other interesting point of comparison: the LPGA has tremendous growth potential (given its current status and size, but crop of rising young guns), while the PGA may be at or near its peak (and will be in much anticipated negotiations with television networks this fall). Golf Week had a great article analyzing the financial situation of the PGA, as does TGC in this article by AP. It’s very telling to see that the PGA is discussing switching to a playoff system — something that the LPGA already adopted back in June. Who would’ve thought: the LPGA setting the bar?
