The induction ceremony for the World Golf Hall of Fame will rotate to new places for two of the next three ceremonies the hall announced on Monday.

Mi Jung Hur set a 72-hole scoring record at last week's Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic to earn a 4-shot victory, and that win propelled her up 29 spots to No. 65 in this week's world rankings.

The Europeans had a flare for the dramatic last year as they stormed back from four points deficit on the final day to win 14 1/2 - 13 1/2. Europe won 8 1/2 out of the 12 possible points on Sunday to complete an incredible comeback.
