Liz is out this week, which means no breaks for Christopher. But if you’ve got a spare minute, you can watch Tiger Woods play some golf in the 91st PGA Championship. PGA.com is carrying exclusive live video coverage from the tournament from August 13-16.
PGA.com will have four live streams covering:
- A TNT simulcast on Thursday and Friday from 1-5 p.m. ET.
- Marquee group follow. This gets a little specific, so I’m just going to quote the press announcement:
For the first two rounds, PGA.com will follow the threesome of Tiger Woods, defending champion Padraig Harrington and 2002 PGA champion at Hazeltine Rich Beem (9:35 a.m. ET Thursday/2:45 p.m. ET Friday), while fans will be able to vote on a second group that PGA.com will showcase through a poll on the site. PGA.com will also feature two marquee groups during the final two rounds, marking the first time ever the site will follow more than one group for four days of the event.
- Par 3 coverage of holes 4, 8, 13 and 17.
The PGA’s video player will sport a higher-resolution image and picture-in-picture, so you can watch multiple streams at once. Golf is a social sport, so it’s only fitting that social media would be part of the coverage. Twitter, Facebook and MySpace will be integrated into the player so fans can interact while watching the tournament. And, of course, for the golfer on the go, there is an iPhone App ($1.99) that offers live video coverage and updates.
