INDIANAPOLIS -- The LPGA Tour is set to showcase a different kind of drive into the turns at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.A foursome of female golfers visited IMS on Tuesday to help launch the Indy Women in Tech Championship presented by Guggenheim. The $2 million event will debut Sept. 4-10, 2017, at the speedways Brickyard Crossing golf course.In an era when the LPGA has significantly broadened its international reach, the IWiT Championship represents a return to the American heartland.Weve been working on this for six or seven months now, and Im thrilled to be on this stage to share our little secret, LPGA Tour commissioner Mike Whan said. The group here started talking about this vision of putting these things together -- business, Indianapolis, the Speedway -- bringing us back to the Midwest and letting the world see what can be possible.Were proud to be a delivery message for what they are going to deliver here in the years to come.Brickyard Crossing hosted the PGA Senior Tour Comfort Classic from 1994 to 2000, and the Pete Dye design is expected to be a challenging track for the women.An earlier iteration of the Speedway course hosted the PGA 500 Festival Open Invitational from 1960 to 1968, along with a one-off 500 Ladies Classic in 1968 that resulted in one of the last victories of Mickey Wrights legendary LPGA career.Wright won $2,250 from a purse of $15,500.In recent years, John Daly put Indianapolis back on the national golf map with his memorable triumph in the 1991 PGA Championship at Crooked Stick, which remains in the rotation of courses for the PGA Tours BMW Championship.Crooked Stick was also the venue for the 2005 Solheim Cup, the biennial competition between teams of female professional golfers from Europe and the United States.It didnt take us 30 seconds to decide we wanted to be a part of this, IMS president Doug Boles said. Its about Indianapolis, and the community we care so much about, and having Indy Women in Tech fits with the brand the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has remained true to for the last 107 years.Its all about advancing technology and helping the community.The original IMS golf course was built in 1929. It grew to encompass 27 holes until Dye led a comprehensive redesign in the early 1990s that consolidated the layout down to 18 holes, with four inside the famous 2.5-mile racetrack.The LPGA tournament is the latest example of Speedway managements attempts to get as much use as possible out of the huge permanent facility. Until 1994, the month-long Indianapolis 500 was the only event IMS hosted.In addition to the 500, the track now stages an annual NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race and the largest vintage car racing meeting in America. This weekend, IMS hosts a round of the Red Bull Air Races for the first time.I dont know if we have another venue on tour that is iconic as the Speedway, said LPGA professional Morgan Pressel, who stroked several long drives down the Speedways 5/8-mile-long main straightaway. I think Indianapolis is a great market for us because its a nice middle ground.The golf course looks really challenging, and hopefully we are here for the long term.

WASHINGTON -- Phillies starter Jerad Eickhoff matched Nationals ace Max Scherzer and struck out Bryce Harper swinging three straight times. When Eickhoff left, Harper struck back against Philadelphias bullpen.Harper hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning to lift the Washington Nationals to a 3-0 victory over the Phillies on Saturday night.Eickhoff had his way with the 2015 NL Most Valuable Player and the rest of Washingtons lineup. He held the NL East leaders scoreless over six innings, giving up five hits and striking out five.Harper then provided the games only scoring against Patrick Schuster, who threw a wild pitch, issued a walk and gave up the homer without recording an out after replacing fellow reliever Luis Garcia (1-1).The loss, Philadelphias 79th on the season, didnt diminish Eickhoffs outing.Eickhoff was outstanding again today, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. Hes been doing that consistently all year and that was a great, great performance by him.The Phillies offense was anything but great.Scherzer gave up four hits in 6 2/3 scoreless innings, and struck out eight to increase his NL lead to 251.Shawn Kelley (2-2) recorded the final out of the eighth and Mark Melancon pitched ninth for his 40th save as Washington won for the fifth time in six games.Ben Reveres single with one out in the eighth started the winning rally against Garcia, who was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley before the game. Daniel Murphy walked before Harpers homer.Scherzer wasnt special throughout -- he hit two batters -- and labored at times with long innings. He also got clutch outs when needed.With two runners on and one out in the first, Scherzer induced back-tto-back infield pop-ups.dddddddddddd He struck out Tommy Joseph to end the third with two runners in scoring position.No new news, we just lack offense, Mackanin said. We just cant get anything going offensively and other than that we were in every game.Eickhoffs effective work kept his side in this game.You know its going to be a battle with Scherzer, Eickhoff said. If its giving up one or two runs or no runs, youve got to find a way to keep him off the board and I was very lucky to be able to do that today.Philadelphias defense kept the game scoreless in the fourth. Jose Lobatons single with runners at first and second sent Clint Robinson around third. Center fielder Odubel Herreras throw bounced to home, where catcher Cameron Rupp shielded the plate and tagged out Robinson.TRAINERS ROOMPhillies: 3B Maikel Franco pinch hit in the seventh inning after sitting out the previous two games with a sore right thumb.Nationals: RHP Joe Ross, on the disabled list since July 3 with right shoulder inflammation, threw 60 pitches during a simulation at Nationals Park Saturday.
