An Early LPGA Start Today

After a few weeks in primetime, the LPGA gets an early broadcast window -- at least for the first two days -- at the Volunteers of America LPGA Texas Classic.

Defending champ Haru Nomura

As usual, Tony Jesselli has a preview of the event at his site.

There has been some talk about the change of venue this year and how the players haven't seen the course before. You might think that would be a problem for defending champ Haru Nomura. But I've been unable to find her listed in the pairings, so I'm not even sure she's there.

Instead, Stacy Lewis, who announced her pregnancy earlier this week, seems to be the favorite among the expert pickers. Personally, I think the new venue makes any pick little more than a guess. And if the wind comes up -- as the wind is prone to do in Texas -- I wouldn't even try to pick a winner. While I would expect a low ball hitter to have an advantage, this one looks to be anybody's title.

The only thing I can say for sure at this point is that GC's coverage starts at 10:30am ET this morning. You've got three hours of live golf to get your day started, on an unfamiliar course where any player could win this week. What more do you need?
