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.

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.
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.
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.
