The Senior LPGA Championship is a women's professional golf tournament on the Legends Tour. It began in 2017 and the first event was played at The Pete Dye Course in French Lick, Indiana.[1] The minimum age is 45, although with the USGA instituting the new U.S. Senior Women's Open in 2018, the tour may change the minimum age to accommodate the USGA's rule since not all Senior LPGA Championship players are eligible for the U.S. Senior Women's Open.
