The LPGA and IMG have announced the cancellation of this year's China LPGA, which was to be played Oct. 23-25. Little detail was given on the reason for the change, but it's another bit of bad news for the tour, which has lost seven other tournaments since 2007 and has an interim commissioner running things after the resignation earlier this summer of Carolyn Bivens. The complete release from the tour and IMG is below:  "The IMG-managed China LPGA tournament, originally scheduled for mid-October, will not be staged in 2009 and we are now focusing our efforts on ensuring the event's return to China in 2010 and 2011. We look forward to the second half of the 2009 LPGA Tour season, which will include two IMG-managed LPGA Tour events, the Samsung World Championship (Sept. 17-20) and the LPGA Tour Championship (Nov. 19-22)."
