ON THE WEB
Of course, Golf.com has you covered with on-site reports from our correspondents, video features and highlights, daily live blogs, constantly updated photo galleries from Sports Illustrated shooters, and in-depth features from our stable of writers from Golf Magazine, Sports Illustrated and Golf.com.
USOpen.com, the tournament’s official website, offers numerous ways to track the action, including up-to-the-minute scores, live video from Olympic, and photo galleries of the day’s best moments. You can also follow your favorite pros with PlayTracker, a live, interactive look at who’s where on the golf course and what’s happening on every hole. After the round, check for news and highlights curated by the USGA itself.
WatchESPN.com also streams the ESPN television broadcast online, whenever the parent network is on the air. It's not supported by all cable providers, so check your eligibility beforehand.
ON YOUR HANDHELD
Despite all of those options, you may have an employer and/or other obligations and will have to rely on mobile devices. You're in luck. For those with running Android or using iPhones, the U.S. Open Golf Championship App has your back, and it's free of charge.
This official app, put out by the USGA (a.k.a., the guys who throw the party), has almost everything USOpen.com does, which means all the information you can handle, from starting times to scoreboards. It also features a hole-by-hole map showing each of Olympic’s 18 holes, complete with a 30-second flyover with narration on how the pros will play the hole. The app has the same news, video and photos the USGA puts on the web, as well as an index of every player in competition, access to a live radio broadcast, and a little tab that compiles what all the pros are saying via Twitter.
