Thursday, July 13 and Friday, July 14
The 72nd U.S. Women’s Open Championship at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., is well underway. Competition began Thursday, July 13, and continues today, Friday, July 14, with first and second round action from 2:00 to 7:00 PM ET both days on FS1.
Coverage shifts to the FOX broadcast network for third and final round coverage on Saturday, July 15, and Sunday, July 16, from 2:00 to 7:00 PM ET.
Highlights from FOX Sports’ ongoing coverage are below:
Wie on the evolution of her swing:
“That first swing is from 2003. That was pre-injuries. A lot of injuries. I struggled through a lot, so I had to work my swing around that. I don’t think really anyone has the same swing when they’re 13 as when they’re 27. I liked that swing back then. If I had my way, I would definitely keep that swing, but I just had a lot of injuries along the way and had to work around it unfortunately.”
Wie on her neck injury and subsequent withdrawal from this year’s championship:
“I just didn’t want to hurt it any further. There are a lot of important tournaments coming up, and I want to be ready for that. But I’m just so bummed. This golf course is so pure. It was so much fun yesterday. I’m sad to not be playing golf, but I’m excited to be here.”
Analyst Juli Inkster on the importance of consistency despite weather delays:
“This is a round where you don’t want to let the leaders get too far ahead of you. They have a lot of holes left to play, but I think with the conditions, I don’t see anybody really running away with this thing. So, patience today. Fairways, greens, don’t leave yourself those five- or six-footers for par. Every par out there today is your friend.”
