The Ladies Are Playing Too

In case links golf isn't quite your cup of tea, you still have a chance to watch some golf this week. The LPGA is playing the Marathon Classic in Ohio, and GC is going to shoehorn some coverage into its line-up, in-between the Open coverage.

The defending champion is Chella Choi, who broke through to get her first win at this event last year.

As usual, Tony Jesselli has a preview of the event at his blog. After reading it, I was originally surprised to see that both Brooke Henderson and Lydia Ko are playing this week. But since neither is in the UL International Crown next week, I guess they figure they'll still be able to get enough rest before the RICOH Women's British Open the following week.

However, Stacy Lewis and Haru Nomura are also playing despite being in the International Crown next week. With the Olympics less than a month away, I hope this strategy doesn't backfire on thism.

At any rate, GC will be showing a couple hours of taped coverage tonight and Friday between 8pm and 10pm ET. I'm not sure if Saturday's 6pm-8pm ET coverage will be taped or not, but the CBS coverage on Sunday from 4pm-6pm ET should definitely be live.



  2. At this time of year, especially in the western end of the Eastern time zone, the sun is up late enough that Saturday's coverage will be live.


    1. Thanks, Kevin. Here in NC it's light enough but I wasn't sure how the latitude difference might affect it. 8pm does seem a bit late for a third round to finish, though.
