The LPGA Tour is adding two tournaments in California next year as part of a 34-tournament schedule that offers a record $68.75 million in prize money.

Coming off a year in which 17 players earned at least $1 million, the LPGA Tour put together a 2018 schedule that it hopes to build momentum. While it lost two events - Lorena Ochoa Match Play in Mexico and the Manulife LPGA Classic in Canada - the LPGA replaced them with three new tournaments.
