We’ve written before a number of times about one of golf’s biggest and best tournaments being denied Australian free to air coverage [and many readers have expressed their anger] but basically nothing has changed – the US Masters has free to air but not The Open Championship.
Maybe one day it will return to one of the national broadcasters – one of those ones they are always attacking – but in the meantime you can either join us on the dark side with pay tv, find a reliable internet streaming site, or spend some time at your local club.
British Open Fox Sports Coverage
Australians with Fox Sports subscriptions will have a wealth of coverage this week, with much of the live coverage in prime time and beyond – you just have to stay up – or get up – very early Monday morning if you want to watch the important bit at the end (and here’s hoping it is a happy ending for Aussie golf).
There’s also the replays each day and all the preview and historical type programing leading up to live coverage beginning Thursday 6pm.
