After three brutal days of the US Open 2018 at Shinnecock Hills, it’s absolutely anybody’s guess who’s going to take home the second major golf championship of the year. We know that it’s not going to be Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Jason Day or Tiger Woods – all cut after the second round – but after that, it’s virtually impossible. We’ll tell you how to watch the highs and the very many lows of the final round of the US Open from anywhere in the world – and there’s even a free live stream to enjoy, too.
Heading into the weekend, it seemed like Dustin Johnson would take some beating. But he really struggled on Saturday, and the likes of Daniel Berger (pictured) and Tony Finau took advantage of a more clement morning to share the lead with him at the start of the final round.
And alongside them is last year’s champ Brooks Koepka, aiming to be the first back-to-back winner since Curtis Strange in the 80s.
The great news is that you can see exactly how it will all play out – the bogeys, the odd birdie and any Phil Mickelson-style antics – for free, because the official US Open website will be hosting a live stream. We can tell you how to watch it all – even if you’re outside the United States. Keep reading to see how to get a 2018 US Open golf live stream from any corner of the Earth.
Watch all the action at USOpen.com
Well here’s a stroke of good news (pun very much intended) – it looks like the official tournament website, USOpen.com, will be live streaming some of the best action. The schedule currently says that it will be showing a live stream of featured groups every single day, as well as shots at holes, 7, 9 and 11.
Although we can’t yet confirm, we think it’s a pretty safe assumption to make that the featured groups on rounds three and four will be the leaders.
Aside from the US Open live stream, we have more US watching options below.
How to watch the US Open golf in the US
There are number of options you can watch the US Open golf final round if you’re stateside:
– The live stream from USOpen.com. Although you’ll be limited to what the website wants to show you and we doubt the coverage will have the sheen and depth of most dedicated broadcasters.
– Following the lead of the likes of WWE and UFC, the PGA has got itself all modern and produced its very own subscription golf service. PGA Tour Live costs $5.99 per month (or $39.99 for a year) and hosts all the action from over 30 events. Plus, it has its own iOS, Android and Apple TV apps so you can access anywhere.
– If you’re at home and have cable, then Fox is the official broadcaster. Fox has confirmed that it will have 4K cameras at the event on certain holes as well, letting you watch the action in ultra HD.
– The Golf Channel is available from most cable providers as well and has comprehensive coverage of the event.
– If you’re outside the US this weekend but want to access one of the above options, then you can use a VPN service to effectively transport your computer, phone or tablet’s IP back to a US location.
