It's the date-line Jen. Saturday = Sunday in some parts of the world & TV coverage rules.

That's the stated reason, I know (Asian sponsors, Asian viewers) but the date-line doesn't seem to affect the PGA Tour's two Hawaii season-opening tournaments, which includes the Asian-sponsored Sony Open. Or even the LPGA's new Kapalua Classic in October--it'll be 72 holes.

Bivens is shrewd. She placed it there for a reason. Perhaps the LPGA draws a tv audience from those who tend to stay at home on a Saturday night. Be that the case, then the placement of the event in prime time on a Saturday is a damned fine move.

Sorry, Jen - you're right - I should have done some more figuring!
