LPGA Kia Classic will not be played in 2020, will return in 2021

The LPGA made another cancellation announcement on Thursday as the Kia Classic fell off the fall schedule. The tournament was to be played Sept. 24-27 at Aviara Golf Club in Carlsbad, California. It would have fallen two weeks after the ANA Inspiration, a major, and right between the Cambia Portland Classic and ShopRite LPGA Classic.

The Kia originally should have taken place in March. It was one of the initial postponements of the spring portion of the season.

The LPGA and Kia jointly announced Thursday that the event would return in its original March date in 2021 at Aviara.

“We appreciate all of the efforts by Kia to try and make this event happen this year and we look forward to playing again at beautiful Aviara Golf Club in 2021,” said LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan in a release.

Most recently, the LPGA canceled two events on its fall Asian swing, the Buick LPGA Shanghai and Taiwan Swinging Skirts.
