Day­ton Beach, Florida — The LPGA Tour has can­celed its event next month in China be­cause of per­mit­ting prob­lems. The Alisports LPGA was set for Oct 5-8 in Shang­hai.

“Un­for­tu­nately, we have just re­ceived word that the tour­na­ment was un­suc­cess­ful in ob­tain­ing ap­proval from the lo­cal district gov­ern­ment,” LPGA Tour Com­mis­sioner Mike Whan said Tues­day. “The hard­est part about this news is that we have a ti­tle spon­sor, a tour­na­ment op­er­a­tor, a TV pro­duc­tion group and a host venue all set to go.” – AP
