2008 Women’s British Open TV Schedule

SEVEN AND A HALF HOURS OF TV COVERAGE are scheduled for the RICOH Women’s British Open this week at Sunningdale Golf Club in Berkshire, England. (Seven hours and 28 minutes to be exact. TNT signs off at 11:59 a.m. Must be their lunch time.)

That’s not much coverage for a major, but this is the ongoing situation with the lady professionals. It’s tough being the minor attraction in a minor sport.

Tune in to TNT on Thursday and Friday, and ABC on the weekend. All times are U.S./Canadian Eastern Time (ET).

Thursday, July 31
10 a.m. to 11:59 a.m. ET on TNT

Friday, August 1

10 a.m. to 11:59 a.m. ET on TNT

Saturday, August 2

1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET on ABC

Sunday, August 3

1 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET on ABC

I hope you're able to squeeze in some viewing time. It may be the last time you see all-time great Annika Sorenstam compete in a major championship.

I'm appalled at the lack of coverage for a women's major, especially the last major of a legend, Annika Sorenstam. We have Tiger Week the entire week before a men's major and then full coverage of the major, followed sometimes by repeat telecasts of the last round if he is in the final grouping. Can you imagine the outrage if the coverage for Tiger's final major was only a 2-hour tape delay per round on non-major networks?

Women Golf Too: As a golf fan, including women's golf fan, I don't like it either.
