You Thought Golf Was Over? O-o-o-o-oh No!

It's true that the LPGA and PGA Tours are finished for the year -- other than special events, that is -- but the ET is beginning their new season and it's Major Season Down Under! Let me get you up-to-speed on today's (Wednesday) events.

Jason Day and Jordan Spieth

At 7:30pm ET tonight GC starts with their Pre Game show. There should be some early coverage from Australia as they lead into...

The Emirates Australian Open at 8pm ET. Jason Day and Jordan Spieth are headlining the event and Jordan is the guy to beat, having gone 1st, 2nd, 1st over the last three years. You've no doubt heard that Cameron McCormick, Jordan's coach and an Aussie to boot, will be on Jordan's bag this week while Michael Greller is at home "caddying" for his wife and new baby.

In addition, this is Jason's first time teeing up Down Under in four years. I'm hoping for a battle between him and Jordan by the end of the week.

This is one of the few times we Americans get to see some of the Aussie players like Craig Perry and James Nitties (personal faves of mine). Of course, some of the Aussies who regularly play the PGA Tour like Geoff Ogilvy and Rod Pampling will tee it up as well. And I love getting to see the event during prime time rather than in the middle of our night!

Which brings me to the UBS Hong Kong Open at 1am ET. Technically that's Thursday morning here in the US, but it's still the middle of the night and there's only a couple of hours of coverage. (Then the Aussie Open coverage repeats.)

But this event has a strong line-up. Sergio is playing in Hong Kong for his first time ever! And Justin Rose, Matt Fitzpatrick, Tommy Fleetwood, Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Rafa Cabrera-Bello, and Chase Koepka (Brooks's brother) are just a few of the names we ET fans will recognize. (Okay, PGA Tour fans should recognize them too, but you know what I mean.)

So the 2017 golf season is over... and we still get 7.5 hours of live golf in prime time! Is this a great week or what?
