US Open 2019: Round 1 tee times, TV channels, streaming info. Where you can Watch this big golf championship tournament free. The US Open begins on Thursday, when Brooks Copecka looks for a hat-trick after winning the tournament in the past two years. Koepka also participates this year after successfully defending the USPGA title.
The 119th US Open golf tournament is set to tee off at the iconic Pebble Beach course along the California coast on Thursday, June 13. It’s Pebble’s sixth time hosting the event and the first since 2010. Brooks Koepka has won the last two US Opens as part of his run of winning three of the past five majors. He’ll face stiff competition from Tiger Woods, who won earlier this year at The Masters in incredible fashion — and also won the US Open at Pebble way back in 2000. Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth will also be competing.
The US Open will be broadcast on Fox, which you can access with a cable or satellite subscription, or for free with an over-the-air digital antenna. We have a few, cheap suggestions for the best indoor antennas. You can also watch early round coverage on FS1.
No other U.S. Open has such a calming effect, especially the seven-hole stretch along the Pacific coast with sweeping views of sea lions basking on the rocks below the sixth green and people walking dogs on the seashore below the 10th fairway.
“What’s not to like?” Dustin Johnson said. “The golf course is fantastic from start to finish. When you’ve got nice weather, it’s quite beautiful out there.”
About the time Woods and Spieth, along with Justin Thomas and Kevin Kisner, began their nine-hole practice round Wednesday on No. 10, fog crept over the foothills and soon blanketed the course. Visibility was reduced to about 250 yards.
It was an ominous sign the U.S. Open is no holiday. Johnson is among the early starters when the 119th U.S. Open begins Thursday at Pebble Beach, which is celebrating its 100th year.
