Do you love the PGA Tour?
Of course you do. Silly question.
But I mean, do you REALLY love it? Are you the type of fan that wants more than just the regular coverage you get from the networks and 30-second recap on your local late-night news? The kind who wishes you could have live golf delivered every week right to your phone or tablet?
If so, you’re not alone. And you’re also in luck because the PGA Tour has exactly what you’re craving.
It’s called PGA TOUR LIVE, a subscription-based digital platform service. Initially launched last summer, fans can now stream on their smart phone, computer or tablet, live coverage of first and second-round action during the early morning play prior to the start of the regularly scheduled Golf Channel coverage. You can also enjoy live-streaming coverage from select holes after early-round coverage has ended, as well as on 15 select weekends. See the best shots and lead changes as they happen, not hours later in a quick recap during the regularly scheduled telecast.
But wait! There’s more!
New to this season,PGA TOUR LIVE is also now available on Apple TV and Android devices too. You can watch the PGA Tour in the palm of your hand no matter where you are, instead of having to be at home in front of your TV set. In addition, you’ll get integrations with tournament leaders and player scorecards, plus in-round highlights and access to full-round archives as well.
Sounds great you’re saying! But what’s the catch?
Well, you won’t have access to the four majors, the Olympics, Ryder Cup or an alternate-field event like the upcoming Puerto Rico Open or the Barracuda Championship opposite the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational for starters.
And it’s not free of course, it’s a subscription service.
But it’s very affordable for any budget, just $5.99 a month after a one-week free trial or $39.99 for the full season. We’re talking over 380 hours of extra PGA Tour coverage for under $40. That’s quite a bargain.
