Yokohama Tire has decided not to sponsor the LPGA tournament at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail next year, according to a statement from RTJ President John Cannon.

Yokohama Tire has sponsored the tournament at RTJ's Capitol Hill in Prattville for the last three years.

"One of the primary missions of the Trail is to host the highest level of competitive golf and showcase it internationally. We will continue to search for potential sponsors to partner with RTJ, the LPGA and our friends in the River Region to bring professional golf back to Prattville," Cannon said.
