LPGA cancels Mexican tournament
February 3, 2011

The LPGA has scrubbed this year’s $1.3 million Tres Marias Championship in Mexico because of concerns about violence linked to the drug trade, officials said Wednesday.

“We hope to return next year, but would need to see significant improvement from a safety perspective,” an LPGA spokesman said, adding that the tour was concerned about the safety of the players.

The tournament had been scheduled for April 21-24 in Morelia, located in north-central Mexico, where violence linked to drug cartels has been an ongoing problem.
