If You Want to Watch the LPGA This Week...

You won't find it on GC. Instead, you've got to be a bit creative.

Defending champion Austin Ernst

The fourth staging of the LPGA Drive On Championship will be at Crown Colony (Fort Myers FL) this year and the defending champion is Austin Ernst. But don't be surprised if you see this event listed as the inaugural event. It's a fascinating story.

The Drive On events were started in 2020 as a way to give the girls some places to play when the pandemic caused so many cancelled events. However, they weren't regular events as we're used to thinking of them. There were two Drive On events in 2020 -- one at Inverness (Ohio) in July, a second at Lake Oconee (Georgia) in October. Another was held at Golden Ocala (Florida) in March 2021, the one Austin won.

And now, here we are in February for the fourth one. Technically, four separate events that all just happen to be called the LPGA Drive On Championship.

So perhaps it's not such a big surprise that it isn't being carried on GC like a regular tournament. But that doesn't mean you can't watch it. In fact, you can watch SIX HOURS of coverage each day of the event, February 3-5... but some of it will be streaming on LPGA.com and some will be on the Peacock app.

  • LPGA.com will stream the event each day from 10am-1pm ET. This will be coverage of featured holes.
  • Peacock will broadcast from 3pm-6pm ET the first two days and 2pm-5pm ET on Saturday.
  • If you're in Canada, the afternoon coverage will be on LPGA.com.

So your coverage this morning starts on LPGA.com at 10am ET. Enjoy!
