The Open Championship is particularly loaded this year—and if you’re stateside you’ll want to track all of the proceedings in Scotland as the 145th iteration of the tournament runs its course Thursday through Sunday.

If you have a major cable or satellite provider you’ll be able to watch, for the first time, a major championship from the opening shot. And it’s all simulcast online from every possible angle across varying feeds.

The same Golf Channel coverage is available to Sling TV‘s “blue extra” subscribers. Big fan flirting with a PGA Tour Live subscription? It’s a great week to try a seven-day free trial.
