2016 US Open: Australian TV Times

Scott & Day 595

TIME for Aussie golf fans with pay TV access to plan their viewing of the 2016 US Open at the Oakmont Golf Club in Pennsylvania.

Being a night owl will certainly help if you want to watch all the live pay tv coverage of the US Open over all four rounds but the schedule is good news for early risers as well.

Fox Sports coverage starts Friday from midnight and extends till 10am and it is a similar story for the following three rounds.

Each day’s live coverage will also be followed by two hours of live news and review. They had the same “Live From…” programming after the US Masters and the panel style discussion was mostly very interesting.

What will be the 119th US Open – and the ninth edition at the very punishing Oakmont layout – will feature seven Aussies.

Our top chances Jason Day and Adam Scott have been paired for the first two rounds, playing with 2010 British Open winner Louis Oozthuizen.

This group tees off at 4.20am Friday (AEST) so they should get a fair amount of opening round coverage.

Australia’s other participants are Marc Leishman, Geoff Ogilvy, Aron Price, Steven Bowditch and Cameron Smith.
