Can you tell me who will have the TV broadcast for the D. Bank tournament on Monday, Sept 1. I know NBC has it on Sunday, but I can't find the schedule for Monday. Thanks.

NBC also has the telecast on Monday.

Ridgewood Country Club, not Ridgefield.

Thanks, Anon. I knew that, must have blanked out at the keyboard.

The Barkleys are next week, not this week, and you've got the dates wrong for this week. Thursday was the 20th.
