Regarding the tragic death of LPGA golfer Erica Blasberg, the Tour issued the following memo on Tuesday evening about a tribute to her at this week’s Bell-Micro LPGA Classic in Mobile, Alabama:
The LPGA will host a memorial service in celebration of Erica tomorrow (Wednesday, May 12) at 7:30PM at the golf course. Players, caddies, staff and the rest of the LPGA family are invited to attend.
