Roundup: LPGA cancels Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational

The Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour has cancelled the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational for 2020. The team-based competition was scheduled to be held on July 15-18 at Midland Country Club, Michigan. The LPGA is targeting a return in mid-July. In the meantime, a players-only esports competition has been created.

The National Women’s Hockey League has called off the Isobel Cup final between the Boston Pride and Minnesota Whitecaps. The title game was originally scheduled for March 13 before being initially postponed.

The remaining parts of the United States women’s national team‘s gender discrimination lawsuit against the United States Soccer Federation has been rescheduled for September 15. It was originally scheduled for May and then put back until June before California stay-at-home orders affected the case.

Judge Gary Klausner did not rule on the motion that seeks a retrial on the equal pay aspect of the case, which was ruled in favor of US Soccer.

US Soccer has settled a separate lawsuit with the US Soccer Foundation regarding naming and logo trademark disputes.

Ultimate Fighting Championship president Dana White says he will look to stage a planned fight card in Arizona later this month if it cannot be held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“If we can’t get May 30 at the Apex, it’s going to be super disappointing, but we will go somewhere else,” White said.

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey recently gave the green light for professional sports to return without fans in the state.
