Welcome to Major Season

The NBA Playoffs are nearly done, and World Cup Soccer is in full flight for the next month. But you may not have realized just how many major golf tournaments are coming up, beginning with the men's U.S. Open this week. Today I just thought I'd let you know what's coming over the next few weeks. Get your DVR ready!
  • June 17 - 20: U.S. Open (PGA)
  • June 24 - 27: Wegmans LPGA Championship (LPGA)
  • July 8 - 11: U.S. Women's Open (LPGA)
  • July 15 - 18: British Open Championship (PGA)
  • July 22 - 25: Evian Masters (LET),
    Senior British Open Championship (CHAMPIONS)
  • July 29 - Aug 1: RICOH Women's British Open (LPGA, LET),
    U.S. Senior Open Championship (CHAMPIONS)
  • Aug 12 - 15: PGA Championship (PGA)
  • Aug 19 - 22: JELD-WEN Tradition (CHAMPIONS)
That's a pretty full schedule! Six straight weeks with eight majors, a week break, and then two more!

And you read that correctly -- there are only two LET majors. I didn't realize until I made this list that the LET only recognizes one of the LPGA majors, just as the LPGA doesn't recognize the Evian Masters as a major (although they do co-sponsor it). The JLPGA has four majors (you may remember that Morgan Pressel won the first one, the Salonpas Cup, back in May) but their major season doesn't get into full swing until September.

Fortunately, the majority of the World Cup games will be over in the next two weeks... ;-)
