This week, Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia will have coverage of the AT&T National PGA Tour stop which is being held at nearby Newtown Square, PA. Coverage begins Monday and live shows start on Wednesday. For those subscribers to cable in the Philly area, most notably Comcast systems, you can watch this without a problem. For subscribers to satellite, you’re pretty much SOL. But I publish this anyway.
