Spain might have seen its reign as an international soccer power come crashing down in the first two weeks of the World Cup last month in Brazil, but its potential as a major factor in women's golf was in sharp focus the past few days at the LPGA's inaugural International Crown. The Spaniards, who arrived at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills last week with confident games and rather anonymous profiles, left Sunday carrying the glistening silver trophy and wearing the four individual crowns for their victory in the eight-country, 32-player event.

The scoreboards and scaffolding have come down at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, and the venue has returned to its members and corporate clientele. Yet with the success of the LPGA's inaugural International Crown won by Spain last Sunday, it doesn't seem to be a question of whether the LPGA will return to a club that prides itself on periodically hosting major championships, but when and with what event. "I would like to see us play whatever we and they want to play here," LPGA commissioner Michael Whan said on the final day. I think this course can hold anything on the LPGA schedule.

Four LPGA professionals came to Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills on Monday to promote the inaugural International Crown match play competition, which will take place next July. But not all four will necessarily be back next summer for the actual competition. LPGA professionals I.K. Kim (South Korea), Gerina Piller (United States), Pernilla Lindberg (Sweden) and Sarah-Jane Smith (Australia) were among those at Monday's event, a pre-celebration for the competition, the first-of-its-kind biennial, global, team match-play tournament.

BETHESDA -- Pat Bradley remembers the good old days on tour. "You'd come to a tournament and you could count the number of players on one hand who would be there [contending] on Sunday afternoon," said the 17-year LPGA veteran.No more.Already this year, there have been 15 different winners since the women teed it up in Jamaica five months ago, with just Jane Geddes and Beth Daniel making it to the winner's circle twice.The same applies in men's golf and throughout tennis. There's more depth in tournament fields, and they're getting deeper all the time.

BETHESDA -- The theme for this year's LPGA Championship seemed to be established oh, maybe a day or two before the first woman reared back and hammered a drive off the first tee of the Bethesda Country Club yesterday.For days -- no, make that weeks -- the whisper on the tour has been out with the old and in with the new. Pat Bradley, Amy Alcott, Betsy King, Beth Daniel, Jan Stephenson, et al, step aside; henceforth, you are to be known as the fairway version of the over-the-hill gang.First player in with a 3-under-par 68 was King.

On the incoming nine, she followed two bogeys with eagles at the par-5 12th and 13th holes, but could not capitalize.

Nineteen-year-old Paula Creamer - perhaps the most polished member of the LPGA's much publicized youth movement - won't have it easy this week as she tries to capture her first major championship. Creamer walked into her afternoon news conference yesterday with her right wrist wrapped in a bandage, and admitted that she's been playing in pain recently. "I went and got an MRI and an X-ray this morning," Creamer said. "I couldn't play [Tuesday]. My tendons and ligaments aren't torn, so that's good.

There is no near-term downside to the Baltimore area enjoying a week at the center of the golf universe in late July. The inaugural LPGA International Crown, which will bring together 32 top women from eight countries for a new-concept team competition at Caves Valley Golf Club, is going to be a major event with significant global reach. And we're not even going to have to tear up any light rail tracks or turn downtown into a traffic nightmare to make it possible. There are no major infrastructure issues like the ones that made the Baltimore Grand Prix such a tough sell and there is nothing to boil the blood of local commuters and jilted business owners - just a classy showcase event at a classy location that will show off both Baltimore City and Baltimore County to millions of potential visitors worldwide.

As the number of junior golf tournaments in the area increased, the number of participants in Baltimore's oldest junior event kept dropping. What once was a tournament for more than 100 players had trouble attracting half that number. John Albert, who as director of golf at the Hunt Valley Golf Club helped run the Jimmy Flattery Junior Golf Tournament, said "it gradually got to the point about 10 or 12 years ago where it was going to be hard to sustain. " Albert got in touch with Todd Dorsey, the pro at Fox Hollow in Timonium, who in 2007 had started the Junior Golf Tour of Baltimore, a series of tournaments held over the spring and summer.

The LPGA's brand-new International Crown match-play tournament is still a year away, but the preparations have already begun at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills. The event's organizers brought four bright young stars from four participating countries to play the course and meet the local media on Monday. Hopefully, it will be a little less humid when the LPGA assembles eight four-player teams to compete under their national flags in late July of 2014, but the players spoke very highly of the course and the tournament's unique concept.

"More than once, but not more than twice," she said.Davies recouped all of her losses and more here yesterday -- $165,000 to be exact -- by winning the $1.1 million McDonald's LPGA Championship at Du Pont Country Club.

When the United States Golf Association packed up its corporate tents after the 2002 Senior Open concluded, Caves Valley returned to its roots as a private club that was selective in the tournaments it hosted. Mandated to promote the amateur ranks, the Owings Mills club welcomed a handful of events in the intervening years - none involving professionals. That will change in the summer of 2014, when the Ladies Professional Golf Association's inaugural International Crown comes to Baltimore County for a four-day, match-play event featuring four-player teams from eight different countries.
