British Open Golf Live Stream: Watch online for free in the UK
This year marks the 146th edition of golf’s Open Championship, better known as the British Open or even just the Open. Want to watch all the action as early favourites Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson vie for the Claret Jug in 2017? Here’s how to live stream the Open golf from Royal Birkdale.
Sky is the only UK TV channel that will be airing this year’s Open Championship live, having acquired the rights to the prestigious major from the BBC in 2016.
The pay TV giant will be showing the Open on its all-new Sky Sports Golf channel, as well as the revamped Sky Sports Main Event.
Coverage on Thursday and Friday starts at 06:30 BST (01:30 ET), and on Saturday and Sunday at 08:00 (03:00 ET).

That means that, if you already subscribe to Sky Sports, you’ll be able to watch the golf via the broadcaster’s Sky Go streaming service at no additional charge.
Sky Go is available on most mobile devices, desktops and laptops, while the Sky Sports and Sky Sports Mobile TV apps are yet more options for smartphone and tablet users.
Here are the quick links you need to get started:
Don’t have Sky Sports? No problem.
If you want to follow the action on Sky Sports, you can purchase a daily or weekly Sky Sports pass via Sky’s Now TV offshoot. That’ll give you access to all of the Open golf, which you can watch on your TV or stream to your chosen device.
A weekly Sky Sports pass costs £10.99, and the normal price of a day pass is £6.99, making the weekly pass much better value, even if you only want to watch the final two rounds on Saturday and Sunday.
