Wendy's Championship for Children Golf Tournament (LPGA Tour)

The Wendy's Championship for Children was an LPGA Tour golf tournament that was played in Ohio from the late 1990s until the early 2000s.

The tournament took place in the Columbus, Ohio, area, and benefited the Columbus Children's Hospital. ... It was discontinued because the title sponsor, Wendy's fast-food chain, was dissatisfied with the tournament's spot on the LPGA's tour calendar.

It was launched as a 72-hole tournament, switched to 54 holes after two years, then went back to 72 holes for its final three years. ... The 18-hole record of 62 was set by Wendy Ward in 2001. Ward's 21-under that year set the tournament record for 54 holes; Lorena Ochoa's 24-under in 2006 is the tournament record for 72 holes.
