The PGA Tour is back in full swing, and after an exciting Masters in April, we’re ready for the second major of the year: the 2021 PGA Championship at Kiawah Island. Here’s everything you need to know to watch the PGA Championship on TV.

It’s only been nine months since Collin Morikawa’s breakthrough triumph at the Covid-19-postponed 2020 PGA Championship, but it’s time once again to crown a new champion. If you enjoyed the TV coverage of the thrilling Masters in April, where Hideki Matsuyama captured his first major title, you’ll be happy to know that the same broadcast duo will carry the PGA: ESPN and CBS.

But unlike at the Masters, the TV coverage won’t be limited to a few hours each day. Instead, ESPN and CBS are teaming up for wall-to-wall coverage of the action at Kiawah Island. ESPN will start things off with six hours of TV coverage for each the first and second rounds. On the weekend, CBS takes over the primary broadcast with ESPN providing early coverage.

In addition, golf fans can tune into ESPN+ on the device of their choice for extensive streaming options, including 12 hours of exclusive early coverage on Thursday and Friday, as well as two hours on Saturday and Sunday mornings. You can sign up for an ESPN+ account here to stream the action.
