Samsung Out As Title @ Torrey Pines

According to a GolfChannel.com report, Samsung will not be back next year as title sponsor of the LPGA's World Championship held at Torrey Pines.

IMG Golf is "optimistic" that it will be able to replace Samsung before next year’s event.

Last week, Anheuser-Busch said they would not renew their title sponsorship of the Michelob Ultra Open while Navistar said this week they would renew their sponsorship of the LPGA event in Prattville, Alabama.

The LPGA's new commissioner, Marty Evans, says 18 title contracts have been secured for 2010 with at least six more expected before end of year.
