If the Wegmans LPGA Championship were to lose its status as a major, would there still be a tournament in Rochester?

The tournament chair tells the Rochester Business Journal if it loses its major status, he believes the tournament wouldn't happen. Gerald Stahl tells the RBJ it'd be like taking a step back.

Title sponsor Wegmans also tells the RBJ it has been clear with the LPGA, that it is not interested in sponsoring a regular tour stop.
