2021 OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP: WHERE TO WATCH?
Monday, July 12th, 2021
The 2021 Open Championship returns to the Kent shoreline for the first time in a decade following a two-year absence due to the Covid-induced hiatus last year.
The Open Championship, the year’s final major, will begin at Royal St. George’s, with three men’s majors already decided. While there may be some restrictions this time, Royal St. George’s will hold its 15th Open this week, and many fans will be there.
All four rounds will be broadcast on television, with NBC and Golf Channel sharing coverage. Because the event will take place in England, American viewers will be able to watch it live beginning very early in the morning. The first two rounds will be aired on Golf Channel, with coverage beginning at 4 a.m. ET on Thursday and Friday.
On Saturday and Sunday, Golf Channel will broadcast the early rounds, with NBC taking over for the third and final rounds.
Here’s all you need to know about watching the game on TV.
