The second major of the golf season gets underway on Thursday morning as the 2012 U.S. Open begins from the Olympic Club in San Fransisco. Because the event is being held on the west coast, cable television and internet broadcasts, which usually cater to the east coast, will show each round from close to the beginning. There are multiple live streaming options online, depending on your internet provider and your viewing preferences.
USOpen.com will begin a live stream following their morning marquee group at 10:33 a.m. ET, 7:33 a.m. local time. They'll also have a stream that follows an afternoon group, starting at 4:29 p.m. ET. There are also multiple viewing options on WatchESPN.com, with ESPN3 coverage starting at 12 p.m. ET. They will have a marquee group feed, a feed for the 8th and 18th holes, and a stream that is a mirror of ESPN's television coverage. There is a two-hour gap in ESPN3's coverage, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., while NBC is doing live television coverage.
