British Open 2012: TV Coverage, Streaming, Live Updates And More

2012's edition of the British Open tees off in the wee hours of Thursday morning, but fans will still be able to get live Open Championship golf via online streams and television.

ESPN will begin coverage from Royal Lytham & St. Annes at 4:30 a.m. Eastern, but ESPN3 will have live streaming golf from the Nos. 9-11 holes on the course and more comprehensive coverage starting at 4:00 a.m. Eastern. ESPN3 adds streaming coverage from the No. 1 and No. 18 holes at 5:00 a.m. Eastern, not quite in time to see the first swings of a slew of prominent golfers. Three-time British Open champion Tiger Woods, 2012 Masters winner Bubba Watson and defending Open Championship champion Darren Clarke all tee off in the 4:00 a.m. Eastern hour.

ESPN's TV coverage will last most of the day, with live coverage lasting from 4 a.m. to 3 p.m. on ESPN, followed by a recap show from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and select highlights from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. ESPN3 will mirror ESPN's live coverage until 3 p.m.
