The LPGA moves to Canada this week with the playing of the CN Canadian Women's Open.
This will be tournament #19 of 28 on this year's schedule.

Here are the key details:

Course:  Royal Mayfair Golf Club
Location:  Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Final Field:  156 Players
Par:  72

My strength of field rating is a very high 83%, which makes it the 3rd strongest non major championship of the year. Nineteen of the top 20 Rolex Ranked players are in the field, as well as 39 of the top 40 players on the LPGA Priority List. The biggest names missing from the field are: Hee Kyung Seo, Lizette Salas, Jennifer Johnson, and Ayaka Uehara.

Here are the pairings for the first 2 rounds.

  1. TSN2 are showing the event @ 9:30pm to 1:30am Aug. 23. Funny, Aug. 24 or 25 (wknd) on Golf Channel does not show it scheduled on my Bell Network. No Canadian TV stations covering it on the weekend?
