Miss Shibuno Goes to Troon

The Smiling Cinderella is back and she leads the field as she defends her title at the AIG Women's Open at Royal Troon.

Defending champion Hinako Shibuno

Hinako Shibuno played her first links course last week at the Renaissance Club, where she had an invitation to play in the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open. She missed the cut with a +14, but it was her first attempt at links golf, after all.

If it turns nasty this week, as some are predicting for Friday, that could level the odds for her. If everybody struggles...

It's not like she'll be alone. Even the vets will struggle if that happens!

And if you want to keep up with history this week, you should be aware that this will be the first time three players from India tee it up in a major championship. Those three are Aditi Ashok, Diksha Dagar and Tvesa Malik.

Of course, it's also a first for Royal Troon to host the AIG Women's Open. Let's not forget that!

Past champions Stacy Lewis, Inbee Park, Georgia Hall and Dame Laura Davies (who'll be hitting the opening tee shot on Thursday) will join Hinako and the rest for the third spectator-free major in a row -- joining the PGA Tour and Champions Tour. But we're at Royal Troon, folks. How much better can it get?

GC's giving this major some serious coverage, beginning Thursday at 5:30am ET for three hours and rejoining the ladies at 10am ET for another three hours. It's always a blast to see the classic links courses, so this is going to be an awesome tournament!
