Criteria clarified to let Wie into LPGA major
RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. » The Kraft Nabisco Championship clarified its criteria yesterday, allowing teenage sensations Michelle Wie and Morgan Pressel to play in the LPGA Tour's first major of the year.
Wie and Pressel, along with former Duke star Brittany Lang, now are eligible for the Kraft Nabisco because all of them finished in the top five at an LPGA major last year.
Wie was runner-up at the LPGA Championship and Women's British Open, and the 16-year-old finished in the top 20 at the Kraft Nabisco last year. Pressel, 17, and Lang tied for second at the U.S. Women's Open.
The tournament previously gave exemptions to players who finished in the top 20 at the Kraft or the top five in the other three majors, provided they were LPGA Tour members.
"The LPGA has recommended, and we agree, that non-LPGA members who achieve the same level of success as LPGA members should be eligible to be considered for an invitation to participate," tournament director Terry Wilcox.
Cal State bans alcohol at athletic events
LONG BEACH, Calif. » The California State University system is banning alcohol from basketball games and other athletic events.
The policy, which was announced yesterday but took effect last month, prohibits the 23 CSU campuses from selling alcoholic beverages at any intercollegiate athletic events in university owned or operated facilities.
CSU Chancellor Charles B. Reed said in a statement that officials believe serving alcohol at athletic events is contrary to the system's alcohol policy and to promoting "a safe and healthy learning environment for all members of the university community."
Eight CSU schools play in Division I: Fresno, Fullerton, Long Beach, Northridge, Sacramento St., San Diego St., San Jose St. and Cal Poly.
