The Japanese women’s tour will remain largely unchanged next year when the season starts March 4 with the Daichin Orchid Ladies, the JLPGA announced Tuesday.

The 2011 calendar will be comprised of the same 34 events with total prize money set at ¥2.87 billion, ¥16 million less than this season.

The first major is the World Ladies Championship on May 5, with the season drawing to a close after the Japan LPGA Tour Championship on Nov. 24.
