Across the pond, the 2012 British Open begins in the early hours on Thursday, and if you don't have a television available to catch ESPN's broadcast, there are a few other options to follow the tournament's action. ESPN's online streaming component at WatchESPN will begin its coverage at 3:30 a.m. EDT, and that's certainly a great option for the diehard fans out there.
The first wave of ESPN3 coverage covers just Holes 9-11, but 30 minutes later, BBC's coverage will be available on the streaming service. There will also be Spanish language coverage and a focus on the first and eighteenth holes.
Now, if ESPN3 is not an option, either, the next best choice would be to download the Open Championship's official mobile app. It offers a three-hole live stream, live scoring updates and video highlights among its various features.
