The LPGA Goes Back to the Races

Of course I refer to the Indy Women In Tech Championship, held at Pete Dye's Brickyard Crossing Golf Course -- which is part of the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway race facility, aka the Brickyard, where the Indy 500 race is held.

Defending champion Sung Hyun Park

Tony Jesselli has a preview of the event at his site -- as usual -- which you can pop over and read to get more technical details. I simply love the fact that this event is played at a famous race track, especially this track. The Indy 500 is the world's oldest car race -- yes, open cockpit race cars, similar to Grand Prix cars for my overseas readers. The Brickyard 400, a NASCAR stock car race, is also held there. And that doesn't even include the motorcycle racing and other types of races that are or have been held there.

And the winner of the golf tournament gets to take part in the traditional Indy 500 victory celebration, which includes kissing the bricks, dousing herself in milk and taking a victory lap. Pretty cool!

Sung Hyun Park finished last year's event in a dead heat with Lizette Salas, then beat Salas on the first playoff hole. It will be interesting to see how things finish this year, especially since the LPGA's dominator, Jin Young Ko, and last week's winner in Europe, Nelly Korda, are taking the week off.

GC's coverage begins Thursday afternoon at 3pm ET, leading into the Safeway Open. I'll leave all the drinking and driving jokes to you readers out there; I'm just going to enjoy the golf.
