The world’s best golfers will head to the iconic Pebble Beach Golf Course for the 119th edition of the US Open, which is the third major of the Golf season for 2019.
The course is one of the more iconic strips of land in US Golf and is a favourite for most players, so it’ll make for a highly competitive and fascinating contest, and you won’t miss a key moment when watching on at home on your TV or streaming this PGA action live to a mobile device.
2019 US Open PGA TV Preview
The Pebble Beach Golf Course in California has hosted the US Open of Golf on five previous occasions, the latest in 2010 when the event was won by Grahame McDowell in somewhat of a shock result. The course will host the 2019 edition to celebrate the centennial of the course and its opening and is the case every year, it will bring together the best of the best that Golf has to offer, but the course can be a tricky one to play at, so precision will be key, especially at holes with huge elements of risk, namely the seventh, a Par 3 just over 100 metres. A misfire there and the ball will be in the Pacific Ocean, never to be seen again.
When: June 14-17, 2019
Where: Pebble Beach, California
The man to beat has to be Brooks Koepka. The American has won the past two US Open titles, and comes to Pebble Beach in ripping form after winning the 2019 PGA Championship, his fourth major for his career and is fast becoming the next big thing in world golf. He was outstanding throughout that win, but did nearly throw it away in the last round, but held his nerve when it counted and got the win. 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.
In terms of Aussie chances, the leading one will be Jason Day. The former PGA Champion has had injury troubles for a little while now, but is starting to slowly get over them, as seen at stages during the PGA Championship, where he was contention early on, but some wayward hitting cost him dearly during the latter rounds. He finished well behind Koepka, but did show signs of his best. His best was on show during the Pebble Beach Pro Am where he finished in a tie for fourth behind Phil Mickleson after shooting -13 for the tournament, so his recent form at Pebble Peach is good and at his best, he can certainly win.

How to Stream the 2019 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.
