Canadian Women's Open to be broadcast on the Internet

SEATTLE -- This weekend's Canadian Women's Open will be the
first LPGA tournament to be shown live on the Internet.

The LPGA reached agreement with Real Networks to show the
tournament, which begins Thursday in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The tournament, which will not be shown on U.S. television, will
be the first on a major pro golf tour to have full video coverage
on the Internet.

The tournament will be available for two hours on Thursday and
Friday and three hours on Saturday and Sunday at www.lpga.com and
www.realone.com/sports.

''I believe the video broadcast of this week's tournament will
continue to enhance our fans' Internet experience,'' LPGA
commissioner Ty Votaw said.
