2020 U.S. Women’s Open: How to watch the final LPGA major of the year

The 2020 U.S. Women’s Open — the final and arguably biggest major of the year — kicks off this week at Champions Golf Club in Houston, Texas. Here’s everything you need to know to watch the tournament.

U.S. Women’s Open preview

You may have thought that major championship golf finished with Dustin Johnson’s triumph at the Masters, but you would be wrong. The most prestigious event in women’s golf is coming up this week, but it almost didn’t get played at all.

This year’s edition of the U.S. Women’s Open was supposed to be played in early June, but that was before the Covid-19 pandemic struck. Fortunately, organizers were able to sneak it in before the end of the year, rescheduling it for this week. And that’s a good thing for golf fans everywhere, because the 2020 women’s majors have been thrilling so far.

At the AIG Women’s Open in August, then 304th-ranked Sophia Popov shocked the golf world by storming to a two-shot victory at Royal Troon. In September, Mirim Lee defeated Nelly Korda and Brooke Henderson in a dramatic playoff at the ANA Inspiration that wasn’t without controversy. Then in October, Sei Young Kim captured her 11th LPGA win and first major title at the KPMG Women’s PGA.
