And Today It's the Mylan Classic

Yes, in case you somehow missed it, the Deutsche Bank doesn't start until tomorrow (it has a Monday finish) so today's TV action comes courtesy of the European and Tours.

The ET event is the Omega European Masters in Switzerland. GC will broadcast it from 8:30a - 12:30p ET. Although this tournament will be overshadowed by the DB at TPC Boston -- after all, many of the big Euro players are in the playoffs -- Omega still has a strong field. Paul Lawrie (one of the Ryder Cup players) will be looking for back-to-back victories this week.

Likewise, the Mylan Classic on the Tour has a lure of its own. GC will broadcast it from 3p - 6p ET this afternoon. Numbers 2 and 3 on the Tour money list -- Casey Wittenberg and Ben Kohles -- are both in the field. It's funny looking at the money list, since most of the players at the top have over 15 events... except Kohles, who has played 3. Yes, just 3 events to reach #3 on the money list.

Anyway, both are two-time winners, so either could potentially get a "battlefield promotion" this week. Yes, I realize that seems somewhat anticlimactic, as the season is pretty much over. But while I couldn't find the info to confirm this, I'm pretty sure that the battlefield promotion has a positive effect on your seeding during your first full year on the big tour. That would certainly make it desirable for more than just bragging rights!

Those are your golf choices for today. The LPGA and the Champions Tour are off this week, and the PGA Tour (as already stated) doesn't get going until tomorrow. Since the ET still has a lot of events left, the Tour event seems primed for the most drama.
