The PGA Championship kicked off this morning at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin and will continue through Sunday. While the Championship will be broadcast on TNT (s TWX) and CBS (s CBS) throughout the weekend, those who are at work or aren’t near a TV can still catch at least some of the golf “action” online and on their mobile phones.
As it has over the last several years, the tournament will be streamed live online at PGA.com. Video includes coverage of the Par 3 3rd Hole at Whistling Straits, as well as coverage from “marquee groups” of participants throughout the tournament. Live video will be available beginning 9 a.m. EDT on Thursday and Friday and 11 a.m. EDT over the weekend.
In addition, the PGA is offering a free iPhone app that will provide live scoring updates during the PGA championship, including a live scoreboard, player scorecards, video highlights, and push notifications to allow users to keep track of their favorite players and breaking news throughout the tournament. For those who want to watch video of the tournament on their phones, there’s a $1.99 in-app charge to allow live video streaming of the same coverage available through the PGA.com website.
