The LPGA Heads to Texas

The LPGA stays in America for the Volunteers of America LPGA Texas Classic.

Defending champion Sung Hyun Park

The course, the Old American Golf Club, is in The Colony, a suburb of Dallas. In 2018 the event was storm-shortened to just two rounds, with Sung Hyun Park being declared the champion. This is the first year that the VOA will be held in October. You can catch Tony Jesselli's preview of this year's playing over at his site.

In some ways I think the biggest storyline this week is whether Mi Jung Hur can make it three LPGA wins this season, after her dominating performance at Indy. She has quite a few family members at this week's event, and that could help her get past the usually inevitable letdown after a win.

But Sung Hyun Park is also back and would like to defend at a four-round event. Two round events aren't official wins -- just ask Stacy Lewis -- so a win here would not only defend her title but give her a third win this season as well.

This is also the last chance for the ladies to make it into the LPGA's Asian swing. It's the last American event until the CME Group Tour Championship in November.

GC's coverage begins Thursday at 1pm ET. It should be very competitive with so much on the line.
