The LPGA has announced the addition of the first Bank of Hope LPGA Match-Play hosted by Shadow Creek event to the 2021 schedule.

It is scheduled to be held May 26-30 at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas.

The tournament will feature 64 players competing for a $1.5m (£1.07m) prize fund with the field divided into 16 groups of four players.

The first three days of round-robin competition will determine the final 16-player bracket.

Next, single-elimination matches will decide the two players who will meet in the championship match on the final day.

Shadow Creek hosted The Match: Tiger vs. Phil in 2018, as well as the PGA Tour’s CJ Cup last autumn

The tournament will be the LPGA Tour’s first match-play event since 2017, when Sei Young Kim earned a 1-up victory over Ariya Jutanugarn in the Lorena Ochoa Match Play in Mexico.
