Golf: What’s On This Week

 

Includes Leaderboards and TV Times

A NUMBER of big events this week including the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, British Women’s Open, Senior Scottish Open, 3M Championship and Queensland Senior PGA Championship.

Jason Day and Adam Scott lead a six strong Aussie contingent at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club in Ohio.

The other Aussies in the almost US$10 million prize-money event are Marc Leishman, Scott Hend, Rod Pampling and Sam Brazel.

They face a top class field including defending champion Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Sergio Garcia and Rory McIlroy.

McIlroy, Day and Spieth (pictured above) will be grouped together for the first two rounds. (They tee off [ET] Thursday 8.10am).

Those US PGA TOUR players not making the WGC field play the alternate Barracuda Championship in Nevada, where Aussies include defending champion Greg Chalmers, Geoff Ogilvy, Matt Jones, Cameron Percy, Robert Allenby, Aaron Baddeley, Stuart Appleby, Brett Drewitt and Steven Bowditch.

Women’s British Open

Following her near miss at the Scottish Open last week Karrie Webb will be hoping to add major #8 to her tally when the Women’s British Open is played – for the first time in its 42-year history – at Scotland’s Kingsbarns Golf Links in St Andrews.

The other Aussies in the top class field include Minjee Lee, Katherine Kirk, Sue Oh, Sarah Jane Smith, Whitney Hillier and Stacey Peters.

Defending champion is Thailand’s Ariya Jutanugarn.

Lonard plays second senior event – Senior Scottish Open

Following his debut T3 finish at the Senior British Open last week newly turned 50 year old Peter Lonard gets another chance to display his talents at the Senior Scottish Open at The Renaissance Club, East Lothian, Scotland.

Other Aussie challengers include European Senior Tour regulars Peter Fowler, Mike Harwood and Peter O’Malley.

The US Champions Tour is also in action with the 3M Championship at the TPC Twin Cities in  Blaine, Minnesota.
