Due to ongoing travel and border restrictions as well as the current health concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the LPGA Tour announced that the 2021 Taiwan Swinging Skirts LPGA, originally scheduled for Oct. 28-31, has been cancelled.

The event was set to be contested between the Korea and Japan stops.

“We are thankful to Swinging Skirts, the Sports Administration, Ministry of Education, GAROC, and IMG for their continued support and efforts in trying to conduct the 2021 tournament,” the LPGA said in a press statement.

“The LPGA Tour and Swinging Skirts remain committed in the event’s return to the 2022 Tour schedule.”

The updated Asian Swing now consist of Buick LPGA Shanghai (China), BMW Ladies Championship (Korea), and TOTO Classic (Japan) but according to sources all tournaments are likely to be cancelled in the coming weeks.
