2017 Australian Open TV Times

An elated Jordan Spieth tosses his ball to the crowd after winning a sudden death playoff to take the 2016 Australian Open

JORDAN Spieth and Jason Day headline the Emirates Australian Open this week at the Australian Golf Club and thankfully free to air television viewers won’t miss out on the action with extensive live coverage on the Seven Network.

Defending champion Spieth is now ranked number two in the world while Day has slipped to 12th … but we all know they both want to be back on top.

Spieth will be going for his third Stonehaven Cup while a win at his national open remains a prominent item on Day’s career bucket list.

 “I know in my heart I will climb that mountain,’’ Day said this week of his quest to regain the top ranking.

“It’s going to be a difficult one, but I’ve had a taste of it, and for me it was very stressful being No. 1 all, all the demands that came with that. I feel very motivated.”

A host of other top Aussie and international players will be teeing off in Sydney, with the live TV coverage beginning 12pm Thursday local time.
