On October 7, Beijing time, the 54-hole lead means that the idea that players can sleep more is over.
As the U.S. Women’s PGA Championship moved to October, and the venue of the game was the Aronimink Golf Club in Newton Square, Pennsylvania, the PGA had to break the rules because of such a date, Rizhao The time is 3 hours less than in summer, and NBC also arranges other programs on weekends.
U.S. Professional League Tournament Director Kerry Haigh (Kerry Haigh) said that Sunday's game time will be adjusted and the last four groups will be placed in the earliest position. If there is no weather delay or no one has not finished the game, the leading trio will split the ball at 8:43 on the first hole, and the last group will split the ball at 9:27.
The live TV time of the American Women’s PGA Championship is from 10 am to noon on the American Golf Channel, and from noon to 2 pm on NBC. In the afternoon, NBC will broadcast live NASCAR racing.
"If you have the opportunity to watch 3 hours of TV broadcast and watch the leader play for 3 hours, as a viewer, the attraction to me is far greater than watching someone other than the leader, and the leader can’t even see a shot. Here," Kelly Haier said Tuesday.
The live TV broadcast on Saturday will be from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the American Golf Channel. NBC will broadcast the rest of the game until 3 p.m. Therefore, there is no need to adjust the announcement in the third round, because the last group plans to separate the ball at 9:32 and should be able to finish the game early before the end of the live TV period.
But this part is bound to be adjusted.
The 132-man lineup means that the departure time for Thursday and Friday starts at 7:10 in the morning, basically 4 minutes after sunrise. Kelly Haier is not sure whether the second round can be completed before sunset on Friday (6:32 pm). If the elimination line will not be determined until Saturday morning, the PGA plans to re-adjust the start time so that the leader can be on TV appear.
"In some ways, we will make history this week because the leader will not start the last wave on Sunday," Kelly Hale said. "If we can't finish the race on Friday, the leader on Saturday will not be the last. Let’s go...Although this is a bit different and breaks the rules. As a partner of LPGA and KPMG, we are ready to make such adjustments, so that for everyone watching, it will be better and more important. Good tournament."
