Stuff to Watch for This Week

The golf season really gets underway this week, so I thought I'd post a reminder of what's coming.

The big news for most fans is that Tiger makes his US debut at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. This is the first time he's been there in a long time, and it'll be interesting to see what he's changed since the Abu Dhabi tournament a couple of weeks ago.

The AT&T broadcast starts Thursday on GC from 3pm-6pm.

The LPGA kicks off their season this week as well. This is one of the new tournaments on the schedule, the ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open. (In case you didn't guess, it's in Australia. Smiley Faces That means, of course, that it'll be time-delayed.) The ladies will be playing the Royal Melbourne course that the men played in the Presidents Cup.

The LPGA broadcast starts Thursday on GC from 12:30pm-2:30pm. Tony Jesselli posted a full preview of the event over at Mostly Harmless, so just use this link to read it.

The European Tour's still in the desert for the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, and most of the big names (McIlroy, Westwood, Kaymer, etc.) in the OWGR will be playing there. Notable Americans include John Daly, Mark O'Meara, Fred Couples, and Peter Uihlein. (I wonder if Freddie headed over to Germany to get his back fixed again, and Dubai was a convenient stop? If so, he may be end up in contention.)

I didn't see a TV listing on the tournament site, but GC usually starts ET broadcasts around 9am on Thursday.

Finally, the Champions Tour is back in action with the Allianz Championship. As best as I can tell, Tom Watson isn't playing anywhere this week, and of course Freddie's over in Dubai, but John Cook, Mark Calcavecchia, Bernhard Langer, Tom Lehman, and the rest of the cast will be there.

The Allianz starts Friday at 6:30pm-8:30pm on GC.

That's definitely plenty of golf to watch this weekend! But with football done for the season and basketball kinda scattered on the schedule, there should be plenty of time to catch your favorites.
