Mike Purkey: The LPGA International Crown is a great idea and all but there’s one prominent LPGA player who will be without a starting time for this event.
Suzann Pettersen is from Norway and she is the only ranked Norwegian player on the Rolex Rankings. Norway will be unable to field a team for this unique event. LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan needs to find a place for Pettersen. Maybe they lump Sweden and Norway together and call it Scandanavia. Or something.
Pettersen has more than paid her LPGA dues. She needs to be accommodated.
