A new 64-player LPGA Match-Play event will be contested starting in May at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas, the tour announced Thursday.
The $1.5 million Bank of Hope LPGA Match-Play will be staged on 26-30 May on the exclusive golf course that hosted the 2018 head-to-head between Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods.
Shadow Creek also hosted the US PGA Tour's CJ Cup last October, the event moving from South Korea due to Covid-19 issues with American Jason Kokrak taking the title.
The field will be divided into 16 groups of four players with three days of round-robin matches deciding a final bracket for knockout stages culminating in a Sunday final.
"We are beyond thrilled," said LPGA chief tournament business officer Ricki Lasky. "This will also be an incredibly exciting week for our players, who have long told us that they wanted to add a match-play competition to our schedule."
It will be the first LPGA match-play event since a 2017 tournament in Mexico City.
