Golf World Plans to Honor Fallen LPGA Star

5/11/2010 4:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
It didn't take long for the golfing world to pay tribute to their fallen 25-year-old star Erica Blasberg -- TMZ has learned several tributes have already been planned. 

The first tribute will take place at the Bell Micro LPGA Classic in Mobile, Alabama -- where Erica was scheduled to compete this week. We're told everyone in the tourney will don purple ribbons in honor of Erica.

Members of the women's golf team at the University of Arizona -- where Erica went to school -- will be wearing black ribbons at the National Championship Tournament in North Carolina later this month.

We've also learned Blasberg will be honored by the Vanderbilt University team -- where her former coach Greg Allen is now in charge. We're told Allen and his players will wear a patch bearing Blasberg's nickname, "Skip."
