As rumoured, acquired by Eleven Sports who will stream it online only.  Available for a free trial but that doesn't help anyone who wants to watch on telly, and a nightmare for punters who will be miles behind live action with the streaming delay on top of the usual coverage delay.  Real let-down for the final major of the year.

I'd quite happily pay £49.99 for the golf plus a season of La Liga and Serie A football but there is no guarantee that they will have a channel on Sky TV platform.

Says it all that all the discussion is about the Eleven Sports farce and none at all about the actual golf.  Way to grow the game and your audience, PGA.

It looks like the PGA site is showing the Tiger group, hopefully they may be showing full coverage later.

On the range at the moment - perfect sound and pics.

There's no geoblocking from the UK, you just need to register with a made up email ad (No confirmation email sent, so put something@gmail.com) and a US zip code and you're in. Just look up the address a US sports venue. I used NJ 07073
