There’s Still Some Golf Left In The Year

Even as we push on into late fall and early winter, there’s still quite a bit of golf left for the avid fan.

First, there’s the PGA Tour’s qualifying school. It starts Wed, and there will be coverage on The Golf Channel Saturday and Sunday from 4 – 7 pm and Monday from 3:30 – 7 pm. But the entire event is 108 holes over six days. That’s a lot of drama.

The LPGA Q School takes place Wednesday, November 30 – Sunday, December 4, but apparently none of it will be televised.

Across the Pond, the European Tour has the UBS Hong Kong Open this week, followed by the Dubai World Championship the following weekend. Both are broadcast on the Golf Channel, albeit at awkward times: 3am – 8am. You really have to be a fan …

And a little more on the silly side, there’s this week’s Chevron World Challenge, and 18 player charity event hosted by Tiger in Thousand Oaks, California. It’ll be on The Golf Channel Thursday and Friday from 3 – 6, and then on NBC on the weekend at the same time.

  1. Another limited field event for Tiger.  This is his best shot at winning in America.  Tiger is 3/1 I think?  A little high – I would think that Webb or Day may win.  And Bubba or Rickie is who I would like to win.

  2. It’s not quite as silly as a novice reader might think; it still awards World Golf Ranking points.

    I can’t wait to see Tiger win this tournament, and then you finding yet another way to criticize him.

  3. thinking a little more … if it’s in saying the tournament is silly, I stand by that. They don’t call it the silly season for nothing. A sixteen man tournament is silly. The charitable aspect is commendable, on the otherhand. Kudos to everyone involved there.  One of the things I really like about pro golf is the commitment to charity.
