08:30 AM ET 07.28 | The LPGA's new leadership is reaching out to its tournaments -- and may be willing to reconsider the controversial raising of event fees -- to help preserve the tour's schedule, according to a tournament owner. Many event organizers have complained that they can't afford higher fees, especially when they are struggling with declining revenue during a recession. But the issue was non-negotiable for former commissioner Carolyn Bivens, who insisted tournaments needed to pay their fair share of staging costs.
