The man to beat this year has to be Brooks Koepka. The American has won two of the past three tournaments. He is such a massive hitter of the ball, arguably one of the best on the tour with such an aggressive swing, which could well lead to injury troubles later on in his career ala Tiger Woods, but his short game would rival that of any player on the tour.

How to Stream the 2020 US Open of Golf in Australia
Not everyone currently has, or wants to take on the cost of a Foxtel or Telstra monthly subscription. So with this consideration in mind, what other choices do you have when it comes to watching the French Open? Let’s take a look at some of the top streaming options available on the Aussie market.
Arguably the gold-standard of the lower-profile streaming device for years now, the Apple TV is popular because it delivers. This tiny box is now in its fifth generation, and has recently added 4K and HDR streaming. You can also download apps just like you would on your phone. And that means almost every major player is supported, including the Kayo Sports streaming service and Foxtel Now.
This amazing little device now comes in two options for streaming video, both with an HDMI connection linking them to your TV. You can choose from the standard or the Ultra Chromecast version – the difference is that the Ultra handles 4K video, which is becoming increasingly available in Australia thanks to Foxtel. Once plugged in and connected to your home Wi-Fi network, the device can be reached by a vast range of apps to stream video, including Kayo Sports and Foxtel Now. While it’s not as seamless as using a dedicated device – it’s still extremely versatile.
Foxtel Now Box
Another increasingly popular streaming device option would be the Foxtel Now Box. Launched over a year ago, it delivers the easiest way to stream Foxtel Now, as well as YouTube and Stan, directly to your TV. There’s no installation required so you can immediately start streaming the French Open and other sport on your TV. Simply plug it in and start watching. Of course, you’ll need to subscribe to Foxtel Now’s Sports pack, which offers access to twelve channels, and all the live action available each and every week.
