2017 British Open: Field, Pairings, Tee Times, Live Stream, How To Watch

The 2017 British Open is gearing up for another classic tournament. Hosted at the Royal Birkdale Golf Club for a 10th time, the Open Championship is a must-see for the casual sports fan. 

As the oldest major championship in professional golf, 2017 will be the 146th time The Open takes place.

This competition is one of the few that consistently features the greatest competition in the world. 

Littered with past champions, the 2017 Open Championship will once again be one of the toughest events in golf. Henrik Stenson will be back looking to defend his title, Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickleson are still looking for their first PGA Tour win of the season, and Dustin Johnson looks to continue his stellar year chasing a second major championship.

The golfing world will descend on Pebble Beach Golf Links this week for the third major championship of the year, as the best players in the world will compete for the 2019 U.S. Open title.

The course will host the championship for the first time since 2010 and the sixth time in its history.

The biggest storyline this week is whether World No. 1 Brooks Koepka, who has won four majors since June of 2017, can win his third consecutive U.S. Open title. Unsurprisingly, the bomber enters as the favorite (15-2) in Vegas this week.

All eyes will also be on Tiger Woods, as he continues to chase Jack Nicklaus and his 18 major titles. Many will recall Tiger’s 15-shot U.S. Open victory at Pebble Beach in 2000, but he has not played a competitive round at Pebble Beach since 2012. Woods is in good form though, finishing in a tie for ninth at The Memorial Tournament two weeks ago.

As with every June, Phil Mickelson will try to achieve the coveted Career Grand Slam. The U.S. Open is the only major championship that Lefty has not won. Adding to the excitement is the fact that he won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am by three shots in February. Could this finally be the year?

With many other tantalizing storylines and plenty of golfers with a realistic chance to win this week, sit back, relax and watch as many hours of golf as you can:

Why is the PGA Championship in May? A 2019 preview

The 2019 PGA Championship has been moved up in the PGA's calendar in an attempt finish the season earlier. The tournament has been contested in August since 1972, and the 101st installment of the event will be the first to take place in May since 1949.

When is the 2019 PGA Championship?

The tournament tees off on Thursday, May 16 with the final round taking place on Sunday, May 19. 

Why was the 2019 PGA Championship moved to May?

A couple of reasons factored into this decision. Every fourth year, the date needed to be shifted to account for the Summer Olympics. Shifting to May avoids having to make this quadrennial tweak. The switch also allows the FedEx Cup Playoffs to begin and end earlier, such that the Sunday rounds of those tournaments do no have to compete with NFL Sundays.

Where is the 2019 PGA Championship being played?

The tournament will be played at Bethpage Black Course in Long Island, New York, for the first time in its history. This course has hosted two majors in the past -- the U.S. Open in 2002 and 2009 (won by Tiger Woods and Lucas Glover, respectively).

Where can you watch the 2019 PGA Championship?

You can watch the tournament live on both TNT and CBS. Here is the breakdown of which parts of the tournament will be on which network:

First Round, Thursday, May 16: 1:00 to 7:00 p.m. on TNT

Second Round, Friday, May 17: 1:00 to 7:30 p.m. on TNT

Third Round, Saturday, May 18: 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on TNT, 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on CBS

Fourth Round, Sunday, May 19: 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on TNT, 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on CBS
