Unchanged: The dates for the 2020 ANA Inspiration, which will be played opposite the Augusta National Women’s Amateur in early April for a second year, LPGA commissioner Mike Whan said. The LPGA had come under scrutiny this year when the inaugural ANWA lured some of the top female amateurs who otherwise would have accepted exemptions to the LPGA’s first major championship of the season. Whan, who spoke Friday at the KPMG Women’s PGA, acknowledged “that’s not the long-term answer to the ANA, but it's definitely the answer both this year and next year. I'm very open in admitting it wasn't as great a media year or television ratings year as we've had in the past there.”
