If you are one of the World's better women golfers, there's no better time than now to whisk up your A game. This week's Wegmans LPGA Championship will be one of three majors in the next four events on the Ladies European and LPGA Tours and, as such, will offer most of the richest purses on both tours. "It's probably almost half the money we play for (all season)," said American young gun Stacy Lewis, who won this year's first major with cheap golf clubs , the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Lewis said it in jest, but she wasn't too far off the truth. There is $11.5 million in prize money at stake in the next four events which is about one-quarter of the total prize fund for the entire 2011 Tours of each of the LPGA and the LET. There is no more important stretch in women's professional golf with the Wegmans LPGA Championship ($2.5 million), the US Women's Open ($3.25 million), the Evian Masters ($3.25 million) and Ricoh Women's British Open ($2.5 million) all being played as consecutive events. The Evian Masters is not officially ranked as a major, but it certainly could be, and maybe should be.
