More PrimeTime LPGA Action Tonight!

Yes, the LPGA is back with more primetime golf. The Lotte Championship is not only in Hawaii, which is five hours ahead of the normal Eastern Standard Times I post here, but it's a Wednesday-Saturday event. That means (obviously enough) that the tournament starts tonight, not Thursday.

Cristie Kerr with Lotte trophy

As usual, Tony Jesselli has done a fine preview of the event at his blog. I will simply note that defending champ Cristie Kerr set the tournament record of -20 at last year's event and, knowing what is possible, it will be interesting to see how low the ladies go this year.

Four of the Top5 in the Rolex Rankings are playing (Lexi's the odd girl out), as are the last four winners of the event. (The two missing champs, Ai Miyazato and Suzann Pettersen, are retired and on maternity leave, respectively.) And new major champ Pernilla Lindberg will be playing, as will Inbee Park, so we could see those two battle it out again. Today Pernilla will be paired with Ariya Jutanugar and Lydia Ko, while Inbee will go out with Brooke Henderson and Bronte Law roughly ten minutes later.

A coincidence? I doubt it.

GC's four hours of live coverage begin tonight at 7pm ET. Again, this is a Wednesday-Saturday event; and with the four hours of coverage scheduled to start at the same time each night, it should be unusually easy to keep track of when the LPGA is being broadcast this week. That's good news for us LPGA fans!
