CNN International brings you exclusive coverage of the Saudi Ladies International Pro-Am Golf Tournament, an annual event hosted by the Saudi Golf Federation.
All the action and highlights of the Senior Ladies’ and Women’s Pro-Am events can be seen exclusively on Bloomberg TV in partnership with ETalk, with anchor Emily Pedersen providing live commentary throughout the day.
In an increasingly competitive field of around 250 women golfers from around the world, Emily sees the Saudi Ladies International Pro-Am as the perfect opportunity to hear from women living and working in the country in what has often been a difficult environment for them to practice their sport.
Emily brings real-time reports live from the course, where she sees the bright, lovely faces and the passion of the female golfers.
Emily Pedersen is a longtime advocate for women’s golf and was the first foreigner ever given a spot on the field of an all-female British Open in 2010.
