The Meijer LPGA Event Returns

Last year the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give was cancelled. This week it's back.

2019 defending champion Brooke Henderson

2019 champion Brooke Henderson is the defending champion, but the field should be fairly well stacked. Again, this is a product of Olympic qualifying -- this week's event and next week's KPMG Women's PGA Championship (the next major) are the only two LPGA events left in the qualifying process.

Of course a number of popular players who aren't going to make the Olympics are also playing -- Juli Inkster, Paula Creamer, Cristie Kerr and Gabriela Ruffles among them.

One interesting note is that, while most of the event will be televised by GC (today's time is from 10:30am-12:30pm ET), Sunday's coverage will be on CBS. It's nice to see more networks covering the LPGA, especially when it's not a major.

While watching the US Open will be the big thing this week, we shouldn't forget the LPGA. At the very least, this week will definitely serve as a warmup for the major next week so it should make for some great TV.
