British Open watchers can sleep in -- kind of -- on Saturday. ESPN opens its coverage of the event at the less daunting hour of 7 a.m. ET, three hours later than what has become the usual time for kicking off these affairs. ESPN wraps up its coverage at 2:30 p.m. ET.
ABC's "The Open Championship Today" is scheduled to run from 2 p.m. ET to 6 p.m. ET. ESPN will also broadcast a highlights package starting at 7 p.m. ET and running for three hours. If you're determined to get up before reasonable people do so, ESPN3.com will continue to cover the proceedings beginning at 4 a.m. ET.
Of course, ESPN3 is not the only tech-savvy way to keep an eye on the action. The Open's official Web site also has live video. And there are apps for your smartphone, including iPhones and those on the Android system, that will carry daily highlights.
