A Quick LPGA Update

Lost in THE OPEN excitement this week is the LPGA team event known as the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational. Here's the quick 411:

2019 defending champs Cydney Clanton and Jasmine Suwannapura

First off, this is a Wednesday-Saturday event. It's a similar concept to the PGA Tour's Zurich Classic, and 2019 champs Cydney Clanton and Jasmine Suwannapura are back to defend.

Possibly the three biggest-name teams to join them will be the Korda Sisters, Inbee Park and So Yeon Ryu, and Danielle Kang and Lydia Ko. But the most interesting pairing may be Nasa Hataoka and Lexi Thompson. (Hataoka's caddie used to work for Thompson, so there's your connection.)

However, my main reason for this short post is that the time for the coverage hasn't been made clear in the ads. GC's coverage starts today (Wednesday) at 3pm ET and it's supposed to be live. The live coverage for Thursday and Friday will stream on the NBC Sports App (and presumably golfchannel.com) while GC will broadcast tape-delayed coverage. And Saturday's final round will be on CBS.

Should be a fun event, just like the Zurich. At the very least, it will be a nice way to spend Wednesday afternoon. And don't forget, next week is the LPGA's next major at Evian.
