British Open Golf 2019 : Here is the full schedule of NBC Sports Group’s live 2019 British Open TV and online coverage. Play at the re-designed Royal Portrush Dunluce links course begins at 1:35 a.m. ET on Thursday.
Francesco Molinari is the defending champion as the Open Championship returns to Northern Ireland for the first time in 68 years. Rory McIlroy is back in his home country seeking his first major title since the 2014 PGA Championship. Tiger Woods guns for his fourth Claret Jug. And Brooks Koepka is playing for his fourth major title in less than 14 months.
The final major of 2019 begins Thursday morning well before the sun rises on the East Coast of the United States.
The British Open returns to Northern Ireland and a designed Royal Portrush Dunluce links course for the first time since 1951. Northern Ireland native and 2011 Champion Golfer of the Year Darren Clarke hits the opening tee shot, weather permitting, at 1:35 a.m. ET (6:35 a.m. local time) from No. 1.
The 2019 British Open is set to tee off this week at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland for the first time since 1951. The 148th edition of the British Open will be played for just the second time ever outside of England and Scotland. With the fourth and final major of the year upon us, there are several British Open streaming options available to golf fans watching online.
The last six British Open titles have been divided up equally between American and European victors, with no continent managing to produce successive winners during that spell. After Molinari took the trophy in Carnoustie, Scotland last year, that could pose as a precursor to suggest the Claret Jug is on its way back across the pond.
NBC Sports and Golf Channel have the broadcasting rights for the British Open, and they’ve provided golf fans with a multitude of streaming options if they can’t watch the action on TV. So there’s absolutely no excuse to not tune in for the British Open this week.
Naturally, much of the attention will be on Northern Ireland’s own Rory McIlroy, who is seeking his first major championship since 2014. But the stacked field also includes Tiger Woods, Brooks Koepka, U.S. Open champion Gary Woodland, defending champion Francisco Molanari and will feature one of the world’s finest courses.
