 NOTES:
      For the 29th consecutive year, the LPGA Tour will stop in Canada, as
 play begins this week at the inaugural Bank of Montreal Canadian Women's
 Open. This event is one of six international events on the LPGA Tour in 2001.
 Lorie Kane will attempt to become only the second Canadian to win an LPGA
 event on home soil. In 1973, Jocelyne Bourassa captured La Canadienne which
 was also in its first year. There are six LPGA players in the event from
 Canada. Joining Kane are: Dawn Coe-Jones, A.J. Eathorne, Gail Graham, Nancy
 Harvey and Marie-Josee Rouleau. The last event held in Canada was the 2000 du
 Maurier Classic won by Meg Mallon. The event was cancelled due to legislation
 passed by the Canadian government banning title sports sponsorship by tobacco
 companies. Next week the LPGA Tour moves to Pennsylvania for the First Union
 Betsy King Classic at Berkleigh Country Club where Michele Redman will defend
 her title.
