With the thousands of hours of live TV coverage of the major tours cancelled for the past couple of months, the Golf Channel has decided to start running re-airs of past LPGA Tournaments on the Golf Channel.
Last week in prime time on Golf Channel, they aired the third and final rounds of the LOTTE Championship from 2014 (Winner: Michelle Wie) and 2019 (Winner: Brooke Henderson). This week they will air 2018 HUGEL-JTBC LA Open.
Like the Premier League, the PGA, LPGA, European Tour and the Asian Tour, are all losing a lot of income by being off-air. Here in Thailand, the only live golf is on True Sport where their weekly golf programme Tee Off had already filmed enough shows to broadcast new content until May.
The major tours have been discussing starting in July with a new schedule of events, maybe behind closed doors. But at least us golf addicts around the world will be able to enjoy some live golf on the telly.
Maybe with the Ryder Cup and the Masters being moved to the Autumn, we will have a feast of exciting golf on TV to look forward to.
Meanwhile we will just have to take in the 86th running of the Singapore Open 2020, and pretend we do not know who won!!!
