How to watch PGA Championship on Freeview from the UK & Ireland

August 08, 2018

As the PGA Championship kicks off on Thursday 9th of August many UK golf fans will be unsure how they will be able to view the coverage of this fourth and final major of the year. The good news is, it’s actually very simple as long as you have a good wifi connection and a device to live stream on.

The live streaming service from Eleven is available via their website here: https://www.elevensports.uk/packages?type=0

Or via the iOS app store here: https://itunes.apple.com/sg/app/eleven-sports/id1111205474?mt=8

Or for Android here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.elevensportsnetwork.elevenpoland&hl=en_US

The even better news is that if you subscribe to the 7 day trial you will get the whole weekend for free and be able to watch the entire event, continuous golf without any ad breaks or interruptions (unless your wifi drops out just as Woods is about to sink a crucial putt – Arrrgh!)

It’s set to be a cracking tournament with many of the world’s best players in top for going in to ‘Glory’s Last Shot’ of the 2018 season.

Rory McIlroy believes he is ready to win another Major Championship and is hopeful that a positive mental attitude can bring rewards at this week's US PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club.

The Northern Irishman's last victory in one of golf's four biggest events came at this tournament in 2014, when he claimed a one-shot triumph over Phil Mickelson at Valhalla.

Since then McIlroy has eight top tens in 14 Majors, including a tie for second at the Open Championship last month, as well as two Race to Dubai titles and a FedEx Cup as he continues to sit at golf's top table.

However, this season has been one of frustration on a Sunday for the 29 year old as he lost out after going out in the final group at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, Masters Tournament and WGC-Bridgestone Invitational alongside eventual winner Justin Thomas just last week.

Meanwhile, Open Champion Francesco Molinari is looking to make it back-to-back Majors at the US PGA Championship – an event he has never missed the cut at in nine consecutive appearances – and follows his second place finish at this tournament last year.

The Italian lifted the Claret Jug at Carnoustie Golf Links as part of a golden summer that also saw him win a first Rolex Series title at the BMW PGA Championship and claim a maiden victory on the US PGA Tour. The 35 year old also finished second on home soil at the Italian Open and has shot to the top of the Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex and sixth in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Tiger Woods joins the star-studded field for the first time since 2015, with the 42 year old preparing to challenge for a 15th Major title, along with fellow Americans and Major winners Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka.
