Another summer weekend, another major golf tournament, as the 93rd PGA Championship tees off Thursday morning at the Atlanta Athletic Club.
Fans can watch coverage of the golf tournament at PGA.com
But this weekend marks the return of Tiger Woods to a major tournament after an extended injury-related absence--he missed the U.S. Open and the British Open--and it promises to be, at the very least, an event. And, frankly, since there's no guarantee Woods will make it into the weekend, you might want to catch Thursday's and Friday's rounds.
Don't worry if you can't tune in to TNT (Thursday and Friday, and early coverage Saturday and Sunday) or CBS (Saturday and Sunday) because you can watch live coverage on PGA.com.
The Turner property will begin its live coverage at 8:35 a.m. Thursday, following Woods, Davis Love III, and Padraig Harrington as the group tees off; it will also follow them on Friday. Tee time is 1:45 p.m. PGA.com also will broadcast Rory McIlroy, Darren Clarke and Charl Schwartzel; this group tees off at 1:45 p.m. Thursday and 8:45 a.m. Friday.
And, as usual, it will offer coverage at all Par 3s throughout the tournament.
Can't wait? You can watch a number of video highlights from past PGA Championships and some features on the site now.
The site also will debut a 360 degree camera that allows users to adjust the view of action, an enhanced video highlight hub and live action updates from PGA.com writers. In addition, PGA.com's award-winning mobile coverage returns with a free PGA Championship App for iPhone and iPod touch sponsored by Mercedes-Benz. PGA.com's live player content also will be optimized for the iPad.
