Golf notes: LPGA kicks off golf’s major season

While everyone gets amped up for next week’s Masters, golf’s major championship season actually starts on Thursday, with the first round of the Kraft Nabisco Championship, the first of the LPGA Tour’s four majors.

Like the men’s first major, the ladies are playing the same course: Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif., with the eventual winner expected to jump into the pond guarding the 18th green, a tradition that began 30 years ago.
