Good And Bad News: US. Women's Open Ratings Up, Second Lowest On Record

The 2018 playing was the first in a new schedule spot against The Memorial. 

The Forecaddie explains the ratings and issues going forward for the U.S. Women's Open.

On another note, while I understand the LPGA's concerns about the new Augusta National Women's Amateur impacting the ANA Inspiration, I believe time zone differences will make a non-issue.

Of greater concern should be the dwinding numbers and stature of what was once the biggest event in women's golf, the U.S. Women's Open. While it's a USGA event, the LPGA might need to reevaluate the dates against Jack Nicklaus' Memorial.
