Golf on TV: OHL Classic, Turkish Airlines Open, Lorena Ochoa Invitational

The following edited content was supplied by Golf Channel in a news release.

The PGA TOUR is in Mexico for the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. Harris English won last year’s event for his second victory of 2013.

The European Tour stages the Turkish Airlines Open this week, with only next week’s DP World Tour Championship remaining on the Tour’s 2014 schedule and season-long Race to Dubai. Jamie Donaldson, Sergio Garcia and Marcel Siem are the only three players with a slight mathematical chance of moving ahead of Rory McIlory in the Race to Dubai standings, with each needing to win both this week and next to have any chance of erasing McIlroy’s lead.

The LPGA Tour wraps up a stretch of seven consecutive international events this week with the Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Mexico before turning to next week’s season-ending CME Group Tour Championship in Naples, Fla.
