Heavy rains threw a wrench into the third-round television coverage from Harbour Town on Saturday, but barring any more weather issues, viewers will be able to watch more than four hours of live coverage on Sunday as the field battles for the tartan jacket. Luke Donald will begin the round in the lead, attempting to win the RBC Heritage Open following several close calls.
Donald sits at 8-under, two strokes clear of the field and he'll tee off in the final pairing on Sunday. He's scheduled to step to the first tee at 1:45 p.m. ET and with television coverage beginning at 1 p.m., viewers will be able to watch most of his final round live. Television coverage will begin on Golf Channel at 1 p.m. where it will remain until 2:30 p.m. There will be no coverage for thirty minutes before CBS begins its broadcast at 3 p.m. While the blackout will occur while all the leaders are on the course, it shouldn't cost viewers to miss more than hole or two. In all, viewers should be able to watch key parts of the round live as they unfold.
In addition to the television coverage, viewers will also be able to watch live online. Golf Live Extra and CBSSports.com will provide live streams of the television. The live streams will run at the same time as the television broadcast. Viewers will need to verify a cable provider to watch the Golf Channel coverage. In addition to video coverage, PGA Tour Radio will provide coverage from noon to 6 p.m.
