CARLSBAD, California (AP) — The U.S. LPGA Tour is adding a new $1.7 million tournament at La Costa Resort & Spa outside San Diego in 2010.

The LPGA Classic Presented by J Golf will be played the week of March 22-28 at the resort in Carlsbad the week before the Kraft Nabisco Championship, the year's first major.

In February, the tour said it would return to the Los Angeles area after a five-year absence. However, the new event is 85 miles (135 kilometers) south of Los Angeles.

It gives the women's tour three events in California, including the $2 million Kraft Nabisco to be played from March 29-April 4 in Rancho Mirage.
