It's new dates and a new contract, but the site will be the same when the 1992 Mazda LPGA Championship is held May 14-17 at Bethesda Country Club. The joint announcement was made by Hal Seward, executive tournament manager of Advantage International, and Jim Silman, president of Bethesda CC.A new contract calls for the club to be host to the event for one year. "The original contract is history," Seward said. That was a five-year deal, calling for the club to hold the championship for two years, with three one-year options to follow.

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.

The last time a women's professional golf tournament was held in the Baltimore area, the results mirrored the world rankings. At the 2009 LPGA Championship at Bulle Rock in Havre de Grace, won easily by a 22-year-old Swede named Anna Nordqvist, the Americans were barely an afterthought in a sport dominated for nearly a decade by international players. When the LPGA tour returns next month, with its inaugural International Crown team event at Caves Valley in Owings Mills, it will be with a power balance that has tilted noticeably back to the United States.

Professional golf in the Baltimore area has a long and rich, if not quite deep, history. Back in '99 - 1899 that is - Willie Smith won the U.S. Open at Baltimore Country Club. It was the fifth Open ever played and the last major professional golf championship contested in the city until 1988, when Liselotte Neumann won the U.S. Women's Open at the same club in a different location.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- The 2005 season was winding down, and the way Rosie Jones had it figured, so was her career on the LPGA Tour. As well as she was playing, as competitive as she was, the injuries weren't going away. Nor were the tour's upstarts, some of whom were young enough to be her daughter. "Everything as far as my body goes is screaming at me, `What are you doing to me, just stop,' " Jones, 46, said one afternoon last week, standing on the practice tee at the Marriott Seaview Resort and Spa before the start of the ShopRite LPGA Classic.

BETHESDA -- Jenny Lidback is making up for lost time with her play through two rounds of the LPGA Championship.Lidback, 30, in her fifth tour season, followed a bogey with a birdie and used a 17-foot putt for birdie on the 18th green to shoot 67 for a 36-hole total of 136, one shot off the pace of leader Cindy Rarick.It has been a fractured season for the native of Peru who now lives in Scottsdale, Ariz. She played in the year's second event, in Hawaii, then, with her non-exempt status did not get into another event until the Lady Keystone Open in Hershey, Pa., a month ago.That was the start of playing four straight weeks, and her play shows more consistency because of it.She tied for 21st in Hershey, used a 69 as the highlight of a tie for seventh in the Corning (N.Y.

You had to get up early to watch Michelle Wie in the second round of the LPGA Championship yesterday at Bulle Rock. She teed off before 8 a.m. The thousands of fans who came out were richly rewarded. Wie blasted long drives into the high blue sky, sank some birdie putts and finished with a 68 that could easily have been four strokes better. "She left a few shots out there, for sure. This isn't a terribly hard course for her. I could easily see her shooting a 63 or 64 in one of the weekend rounds," said her instructor, David Leadbetter, the renowned swing coach who has mostly tutored men's champions such as Nick Faldo and Ernie Els. Her round put her in position to compete for the championship - she finished second in this tournament a year ago - and also illustrated why many of the questions she seems to generate are irrelevant.

A year after celebrating a career-reviving victory in the LPGA Championship, Se Ri Pak found herself at another party yesterday at Bulle Rock in Havre de Grace. A Hall of Fame party. When Pak completed her opening round of 1-over-par 73, she also finished her 10th season on the LPGA Tour. It means that Pak's previous accomplishments, which include 23 victories and five majors, will make the 29-year-old South Korean the 24th player in the tour's Hall of Fame. "I think it's too young for me because I am such a young player," said Pak, who also will enter the World Golf Hall of Fame later this year.

LOS ANGELES — In the world of professional golf, the LPGA Tour is the runt of the litter. Even more so now. Annika Sorenstam is gone. She won so much for so long and did so in such a cool, collected way that whatever limited fan base the tour had, she made it larger. Lorena Ochoa is gone. She won so much in such a short time, and did so in such a cool, collected way that whatever fan base Sorenstam had grown, Ochoa grew it more. Clearly, the LPGA needs a new leading lady.

The LPGA Championship played to sizable, enthusiastic crowds last week at Locust Hill Country Club. The event delivered a memorable performance, too, with Cristie Kerr's 12-stroke romp to a second major trophy. Now the question is whether LPGA bosses want to do it again. The tour's annual stop outside Rochester, N.Y., stepped up to major status this year in a stopgap measure as the LPGA took control of its flagship event and moved through the first months of Commissioner Michael Whan's tenure.

BETHESDA -- They came off the course in a steady stream, with one vital thing in common. Their magic number was 68.That's 68 as in 3-under-par. Ten players shot 68 in the first round of the $1 million Mazda LPGA Championship yesterday at Bethesda Country Club. The LPGA said that a 10-way, first-round tie is probably a record for the tournament that began in 1955, but couldn't verify it.The list was headed by a pair of Hall of Famers, Nancy Lopez, a three-time winner of this event, and Patty Sheehan, who has won it twice.
