Williams May Make Tulsa a Stop on the LPGA Tour

(Tulsa-AP) -- A L-P-G-A tour stop is being wooed by a Tulsa company.

The Williams Company would like to return professional women's golf to Tulsa after a 17-year absence.

Williams is working with a sports marketing company in Stamford, Connecticut. They are in negotiations with the L-P-G-A Tour to bring an annual event to Tulsa Country Club starting in 2001.

Williams would be the presenting sponsor and underwrite the tournament's costs. Williams spokesman Jim Gipson says a decision is expected by summer.

The last time professional women's golf was in the Tulsa area was during the 1983 U-S Women's Open at Cedar Ridge Country Club in Broken Arrow. The L-P-G-A Tour hasn't made a regular stop in Oklahoma since Muskogee Country Club was host to four consecutive events -- the last in 1965.
