    The weekend forecast is calling for perfect weather to get out and play golf.

    But if you are one of those people who would rather watch some of the best golfer's in the world hit a club, then your in luck.

    The tiny East Bay town of Danville will continue to take center stage as the center of the women's golfing world. Round two of the CVS Pharmacy Challenge kicks off Friday at the Blackhawk Country Club, nestled in the Mt. Diablo foothills.

    The tournament is headlined by local girl Paula Creamer of Pleasanton, who says she doesn't feel any added pressure by playing in front of her hometown crowd.

    "I've been looking forward to this week for a long time," she recently told Fox Sports. "I love being able to come home, see all my friends, my family and everybody that I've grown up with."

    The tournament runs through the weekend.
