The Other Tournaments

In addition to the Presidents Cup, there are two other notable tournaments being played this week. Both are being carried by GC, but you can be forgiven if you didn't realize it since they've been barely mentioned.

On the European Tour they're playing the Seve Cup, sort of the Euro version of the Presidents Cup that Seve was responsible for starting. The Great Britain and Ireland team plays the Continental Europe team, each with 10 players, and captained by Sam Torrence and Jose Maria Olazabal, respectively. (You can see the full team listing here.)

GC begins broadcasting today at 9am ET, but you can keep up with the scoring on this leaderboard page.

The other event is the LPGA's new Reignwood LPGA Classic, being held in Beijing, China. Tony Jesselli has a preview of the event at his blog where you can get the details. According to Tony, the field isn't particularly strong. This is the first of 5 Asian tournaments over the next 6 weeks, so I suppose a number of players decided to take this first one off. There are only 81 players in the field; however, #3 Stacy Lewis and #1 Inbee Park are both there to continue their battle for #1 in the Rolex Rankings, as well as for the money list, scoring title, and POY. (Suzann Pettersen isn't playing. She's the current #2 in all of these lists except the scoring title; she's #1 there. )

GC will be broadcasting at 3pm ET but, as Tony notes, that's a 12-hour delay; at the time I'm writing this post, everyone is already at least 4 holes into their rounds. If you want, you can check the LPGA leaderboard at any time to get the latest scores.

These two events are being "squeezed in" amongst the Presidents Cup broadcasts, so you'll have to pay attention if you want to catch either of them.
