Tiger Woods’ tee times: British Open pairings for Round 1, how to watch 2019 coverage

For the first time in about a month, Tiger Woods will be playing in a PGA Tour event.

After finishing the U.S. Open with a strong round Sunday, Woods resumes his PGA Tour tournament slate with the British Open, the final major of the year.

Woods has three career British Open victories (2000, 2005, 2006), the first two of which came at St. Andrews. His 13 years without a Claret Jug is Woods’ longest drought without a win at any of the four majors.

Despite fewer British Open wins than a couple of other majors, he has 10 top-10 finishes, his second-highest total of the four major tournaments. His 5-under par last year marked the start of an impressive resurgence that also involved a second-place finish at the PGA Championship and wins at The Tour Championship and of course the Masters. Woods has finished in the top 10 two other times since his 2006 victory and has only missed the cut twice since playing in his first British Open in 1995.

It has been a bit of a struggle for Woods in his two majors since the triumph at Augusta. He missed the cut at the PGA Championship and finished in a tie for 21st at the U.S. Open. If he comes out on top at Royal Portrush, it will be the first time that he has won multiple majors in the same year since 2006.

With the tournament taking place in Great Britain, the time difference makes watching the tournament a bit more challenging than the typical major, but for those dedicated fans who don’t want to miss any of Woods’ shots, broadcast and live stream information is below.
