Lydia Returns to the Site of Her Last Win

According to Tony Jesselli, the field at this week's Marathon Classic isn't all that strong. But I think that's understandable... and that doesn't mean there's no reason to watch.

Lydia Ko

It's understandable because the ladies will spend the next two weeks in Scotland. Next week will see the inaugural Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open, followed by the Ricoh Women's British Open. The first will be held at Dundonald Links -- that's right, the same site as the men's Scottish Open -- and the second at Kingsbarns, so it's no surprise some of the ladies took the week off.

However, several of the big names still plan to play the Marathon. Defending champ Lydia Ko returns to the site of her last LPGA victory, along with Lexi Thompson and Brooke Henderson. These players alone should make the event worth watching.

Granted, GC's coverage will be tape-delayed, as most of the day will be consumed by live coverage and then re-air of The Open broadcast. But the LPGA will get a couple of hours each day, starting with tonight's broadcast at 8pm ET. If you decide you want to watch something besides links golf this week, you'll find it on the LPGA.

This week, that is. Next week, the LPGA goes links. That should be fun too.
