What to Watch This Weekend

All times are Eastern.

Golf

The United States Women’s Open, the final major of the year, is being contested in Houston. As Karen Crouse writes in The Times, the challenge for the players “is compounded because this year, for the first time, the tournament is being played on two courses.” Cypress Creek, where the final round will be contested, is long, with massive greens. “To play both courses well requires the versatility of a Formula One driver who could also be competitive in NASCAR.” The Women’s Open is the most lucrative women’s major, offering a winner’s check of at least $1 million. (Final round, Sunday, 2 p.m., NBC.)

Soccer

Squaring off in the M.L.S. Cup are the Seattle Sounders, the defending champion, and the Columbus Crew, seeking a first Cup title since 2008. (Saturday, 8:30 p.m., Fox.)

In Europe, two big derby games are on tap. Both red Manchester (United) and blue Manchester (City) are off to uncharacteristically slow starts; they go into the weekend in sixth and seventh place, but few expect them to stay there long. (Saturday 12:30 p.m., NBC.)

A sputtering start from Real Madrid has them in fourth place, 6 points behind cross-town rivals Atlético Madrid, and Atlético has a game in hand. Real has a chance to close the gap this week in El Derbi Madrileño. (Saturday, 3 p.m., beIN Sports and streaming services.)

Football

The game of the week is Chiefs-Dolphins. As Benjamin Hoffman writes in The Times: “The Dolphins (8-4) are not on the Chiefs’ level, but they are also not a team to trifle with. Miami’s defense can make an opponent pay for its mistakes — cornerback Xavien Howard is leading the N.F.L. in interceptions (eight) and passes defended (16) — and the team’s offense is adept at chewing up clock and doing enough to score.” (Sunday, 1 p.m., CBS.)
