“Partnering with ESPN+ to air the teams featured in these two events is a very important step for the LPGA,” said LPGA Commissioner Molly Marcoux Saman. “Our goal has always been to deliver more content and more engagement opportunities to our current fans, and to expose our new fans to the skills and personalities of our amazing athletes. ESPN+ is the perfect platform for us to accomplish these goals and for fans to see even more great golf.”
