Meanwhile, Lydia Defends

While the men tee it up in Scotland, the LPGA heads back to Ohio for the Marathon Classic... and you might be able to watch some of it even if your main concern is the Open.

Lydia Ko with trophy

The Kobra is defending this week, which should be interesting since her game has seemed a bit off lately -- at least, off compared to the way she was playing last year at this time. (Yes, I know Lydia has 2 victories so far this year, but she has a missed cut and only one Top10 since her last win back in April.)

So Yeon Ryu, who Lydia beat last year by a single stroke, clipped Lydia by 2 strokes last week at the US Women's Open. She has no wins and only three Top10s this whole season, but all of those Top10s have been in her last five events... and all have been Top5s. This rematch could be a good one.

Michelle Wie has withdrawn from the event -- understandable, if you saw her struggle through the final round last week -- and a number of the big names are also taking the week after a major off. Still, the Top4 in the Rolex Rankings are teeing it up this week so there's a good chance for some fireworks.

Tony Jesselli has his regular preview for the event here, which should get you up on the details quickly.

And, as I mentioned earlier, you may be able to catch some of the LPGA today even if you're glued to the set watching the Open. GC's coverage runs from 2pm-4pm ET while ESPN's live coverage ends at 3pm ET (at which point I expect them to re-air some of the early coverage). So you may want to catch an hour of the LPGA either before or after the live Open coverage.

At least you have options.
