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.
2021 PGA Tour on Australian TV
The 2021 PGA Tour is set to be the 106th edition that will include all four majors. 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 RMS Classic should you have to be out and about.
Dustin Johnson is the world number at the start of 2021, with plenty of talent breathing down his throat. The likes of Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas 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 2021 Tour season. 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 most recent comeback after injury.
Tiger reminded everyone that he is still the biggest drawcard on the Tour with his extraordinary triumph at the US Masters PGA at Augusta in 2019, 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, the first major of the year, taking place at Augusta in April. The next major on the calendar will be the PGA Championship in May, before the US Open in June. The final major of the year will be The Open Championship at Royal St. George in July.
How to Stream the PGA Tour Live
Kayo Sports will be your home of the PGA Tour in 2021, 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.
For years, Apple TV devices have been an ideal instant streaming solution that does it all. There are two models available – Apple TV HD handles video up to 1080p, while Apple TV 4K adds full support for 4K, HDR and Dolby Vision. Kayo Sports is great on Apple TV, with flawless 4-way Split View.
A hugely popular low-cost streaming solution, Google’s Chromecast got a make-over in 2020, and now comes in two very different flavours. The basic Chromecast is still available, but the newer Google TV version (which replaces the Ultra) adds a remote control and an on-screen interface.
Foxtel Now Box
Foxtel’s own streaming box is an Android TV device that brings the Foxtel Now experience front and centre in its user interface – making it a natural choice if your preferred way of streaming sports is via the live channels that Foxtel Now offers, with on-demand streaming and live free-to-air channels as well.
Amazon Fire TV Stick
This easy alternative comes in three flavours – a budget Lite model, the standard one, and a 4K version. All of them are simple “plug in and go” stick-shaped devices that work similarly to Google’s newest Chromecast, except these use Amazon’s custom user interface and support Alexa voice control.
Nvidia Shield TV
A powerful Android TV streaming device from one of the world’s leading PC graphics companies comes in the form of a small “tube” with connections at either end, along with a slim backlit remote control. It can easily deal with every streaming app under the sun, including Kayo and Foxtel.
