PGA Tour to Air Live and Stream Free Online in Australia

PGA championship golf streaming on Australian TV

The PGA Tour is the leading golf tour on the planet, and is home to the biggest names and best golfers. With tournaments running most weeks of the year, the Tour’s consistent presence and high quality makes it the most popular for TV Audiences world-wide.

As the new season begins to kick into gear, fans of the PGA Tour are asking which tournaments will be broadcast on Australian TV, what time does each event take place, and how can I stream the PGA live? Using this viewing guide you can stay up to date with all of these details and more.

2020 PGA Tour on Australian TV

The 2020 PGA Tour is its 105th season, and will consist of 49 events in total including the four major events which run during the middle part of the year. This is three events less than the total played last year, with the new events including the Zozo Championship in Japan and the Bermuda Championship. Another major change to the Tour this season is the alteration of cut rules, with the number of players to make the cut after 36 holes reduced from 70 and ties down to 65 and ties. It’s set to be an exciting season, and you won’t have to miss a key moment when mobile streaming the US Open should you have to be out and about.

Brooks Koepka has been the world number one for 35 weeks having first risen to prominence with a US Open win a few years back. Since then he has again won the US Open and also added a couple of PGA Championships to his trophy cabinet. The likes of Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy have been in the upper reaches of the Official World Golf Rankings for a number of years, and they will be in the mix throughout the 2020 Tour season, while Tiger Woods, the most compelling name in golf, is now a persistent threat having gradually worked his way back into the top ten since his comeback just two year’s ago.

Tiger reminded everyone that he is still the biggest drawcard on the Tour with his extraordinary triumph at the US Masters PGA at Augusta this past April, and will be looking to add further to his incredible 15 major wins, a number which is second only to Jack Nicklaus’ 18 wins. That chase begins with the Masters at Augusta in April before the PGA Championship takes place at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco. The next major on the calendar will be the US Open of golf at Winged Foot Golf Club in New York in June, before the major season concludes with the 2020 British Open of golf, more formally known as the Open Championship, which will take place at the Royal St. George’s Golf Club in Sandwich, England.

How to Stream the PGA Tour Live

Kayo Sports will be your home of the PGA Tour in 2020, showing not only all four major tournaments live and in high definition, but also every other PGA Tour event throughout the year. Kayo offers live streaming options on a variety of devices and browsers, including PCs and Macs, iOS and Android phones and tablets, Apple and Telstra TV, as well as the popular Google Chromecast, Safari, Firefox, Chrome and Microsoft Edge, with more apps and platforms soon to be added.

Kayo Sports also offers an array of great features which will make your PGA Tour viewing experience even better. Every shot will be displayed in High Definition, giving you greater clarity as you watch the best in the world go about their business, while the SplitView feature enables you to watch up to four different things simultaneously on the same screen. This means that if another sporting event is running at the same time as the PGA Tour you’re watching, you don’t need to miss a minute of either. Kayo also has a No Spoilers option, which allows fans to hide all the scores so you won’t know the results before you’ve watched. It’s a very handy feature if you’re skipping around to other sport in progress during tournament play, and don’t want to know the outcomes before you’ve had a chance to watch an important event On Demand.

Popular PGA Streaming Devices

You may not have a compatible mobile phone or personal computer, so with this in mind, what other choices do you have when it comes to streaming the PGA Tour, and what are the benefits of each? Let’s look at some of the most reliable streaming devices available on the Aussie market.

Apple TV

Arguably the gold-standard of the lower-profile streaming device for years now, the Apple TV is quite 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.

Apple TV

Google Chromecast

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 PGA golf including Kayo Sports and Foxtel Now.

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 PGA Tour 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 including the home of the PGA – Fox Sports and all the live action available each and every week.
