Today's the first time in a while that we've had a full schedule of golf. I just thought I'd make sure y'all knew what is on and when. At least everything's in one place -- Golf Channel.
At 9am ET the Ballentine's Championship (that's the European Tour stop this week) comes on. If you want to watch Adam Scott, Paul Casey, Y.E. Yang, Ian Poulter, or Todd Hamilton, this is the one you want. (This one's already underway as I'm writing this. Darren Clarke has finished at +5. He's certainly having trouble getting back in gear since his Open win, isn't he?) This year's only male three-time winner, Branden Grace, isn't playing.
At 12:30pm ET coverage switches to the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic. Cristie Kerr, Paula Creamer, Lexi Thompson, Na Yeon Choi, and Suzann Pettersen are some of the bigger names that are playing. Neither Yani Tseng or Ai Miyazato are playing this week. Julieta Granada is supposed to be mic'ed up.
Golf Central Pre-Game is on at 2:30pm ET, followed at 3pm ET by the big boys. The Zurich Classic will feature Bubba Watson, Steve Stricker (haven't seen him in a couple of weeks), Carl Petterssen, Ben Curtis, Graeme McDowell, and Luke Donald, among others. There's a pretty strong field in New Orleans. Everybody loves Cajun food, I guess.
Golf Central comes on at 6pm ET, and then the LPGA (6:30) and PGA (8:30) broadcasts will repeat in case you missed them earlier.
I'm a bit surprised. I thought they might cover the Nationwide Tour's South Georgia Classic this week. But it's not like they don't have enough golf to fill the day, huh?
