Where to watch the British Open live online

Golf fans are looking to the U.K. this week, where the Open Championship will have comeback kid Tiger Woods compete against defending champion Darren Clarke and other world-class players.

Of course, thanks to the time difference, many of us will likely either be sleeping, commuting or at the office when things are about to get serious at the Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club in Lytham St. Annes, Lancashire. But no worries – much of the action will be available online as well:

  • Livestream is streaming six hours of the competition live starting Wednesday the 18th at 2 a.m. PT / 5 a.m. ET. The stream will be available on, and every day, come in HD quality and feature an integrated chat as well as text and photo updates.
  • iOS (s AAPL) users will be able to watch the live stream, as well as video highlights through the free official Open Championship iPhone and iPad apps.
  • Android users have access to the live stream and various video highlights though an official Android app, which is now available for free via Google (s GOOG) Play.
