The Ladies PGA Tour is returning to Chicago — but it won't be until 2016. And then it will be for the staging of an extraordinary new team event, the International Crown. Mike Whan, the LPGA commissioner, announced Thursday the tournament will make its debut in Owings Mills, Md., in 2014, and the second staging will be in the summer of 2016 at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove. Jerry Rich, owner and designer of the Rich Harvest private facility that hosted the record-setting 2009 Solheim Cup matches, was a leader in making the new event happen.
