THE LADIES' EUROPEAN TOUR IS A VICTIM of the credit crunch. The Indian Masters, the second-to-last event on the 2008 schedule, has been canceled.
“We did all we could to ensure the event is held on schedule, but sadly we were unable to do so,” Tour executive director Alexandra Armas was quoted as saying.
“We look forward to the possibility of returning to India next year.”
The Dubai Ladies Masters follows the canceled Indian Masters on the schedule and will feature Annika Sorenstam in her last tournament before retiring.
Garcia Is No. 2 in World
Sergio Garcia’s second victory in recent weeks moved the Spaniard to No. 2 in the world rankings, nosing ahead of Phil Mickelson. Garcia beat Englishman Oliver Wilson in a sudden-death playoff to win the HSBC Champions tournament in China.
