LPGA to promote Twitter handles
PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- The LPGA will make following players on social media even easier.
Caddies will be sporting bibs with Twitter handles on their backs starting with the LPGA Championship at Locust Hill Country Club in June. A youngster who attended a morning clinic Monday at Locust Hill donned a bib with (at)YaniTseng on the back as the world's No. 1 player looked on with a big smile.
Kraig Kann, chief communications officer of the LPGA Tour, says 113 LPGA players have Twitter accounts. Tseng was at Locust Hill for a news conference as the defending champion.
The LPGA Championship has been sponsored by Wegmans Food Markets the past three years. The contract is up after this year, but both sides plan to sit down in late June or early July to work on a new deal.
