The LPGA (acronym for Ladies Professional Golf Association) was founded in 1950 on the initiative of thirteen players, with the aim of promoting women’s professional golf in the United States of America. Its first president was Patty Berg. On that same occasion it was decided to start a series of tournaments, on an annual basis, included in a single circuit known as the LPGA Tour.
The first official tournament of the LPGA Tour was the Tampa Women’s Open, held in January 1950 at the Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club in Tampa, where the amateur Polly Riley triumphed, surprisingly capable of beating already professional and much more experienced players.
