Another Busy Day of Golf

This is another one of those days with some unusual TV times, so I wanted to make sure you all know when your faves are playing.

The European Tour will be in GC's eary morning schedule like normal (after Morning Drive, starting at 9am ET). This week they're at the Volvo China Open. I skimmed the leaderboard but didn't see any of the biggest names. Apparently the world players who play both tours frequently are either here in America or taking a week off.

The LGPA is in Williamsburg VA (just a few hours north of where I live) for the Kingsmill Championship. That coverage starts at 12:30pm ET for two hours. (It will be the same on Friday, then the times change to 3pm ET for Saturday and Sunday.) Tony Jesselli has a preview of the event on his blog and the Constructivist has made some picks over at his.

And of course the PGA Tour will be in Charlotte (a couple of hours south of me here in my home state) for the Wells Fargo Championship. That coverage starts with the Golf Central Pregame Show at 2:30pm ET right after the LPGA coverage ends. It should be an interesting event, given the problems they've had with the greens. Rickie Fowler is defending for the first time (at an official PGA Tour event, that is) and Rory McIlroy is hoping for another chance to beat him.

The Tour is playing the Stadion Classic this week, but apparently there's no TV coverage.

And the Champions Tour is playing the Insperity Championship in Texas. TV coverage starts Friday night at 7:30pm ET.

That should have you straight on the times so you don't miss any of your favorite tours. (Unless you're following the Tour. Then you'll just have to check the Tour's live leaderboard.)


  1. Hi Mike !

    At least, we'll see top players from the asian tour at the volvo china open and a lot of young guns too !

    Have a good week-end !


  2. I can certainly agree with that, miecuni. Between Aphibarnrat and Rumford going for their second wins of the season and the two young amateurs -- 16-year-old Dou Ze-cheng making the cut and 12-year-old Ye Wo-cheng becoming the youngest to play in an ET event -- it's certainly been an interesting event thus far.
