The sun is shining, the temperatures are rising, and the best golfers on the planet are gathered in South Carolina for the 2021 PGA Championship at Kiawah Island. Here’s everything you need to know to watch the tournament all week long.

How to watch the PGA Championship

The drama on the PGA Tour is heating up just in time for the second major of the year at Kiawah Island. The Ocean Course was the site of Rory McIlroy’s second major win and first PGA title in 2012. The course was treacherous that week, especially during the blustery second round, and it could present an even tougher test this year.

McIlroy is rounding into form just in time for an attempt at his third PGA victory, having finished off a comeback victory at the Wells Fargo Championship two weeks ago. But he’s not the only major winner showing signs of a potential big week.

Three-time major champion Jordan Spieth has rediscovered his game in 2021 after years of struggles. The popular star captured his first win since 2017 at the Texas Open in April. He then finished T3 at the Masters, one of seven top-10s in his last nine starts. With a win this week, Spieth could complete the career grand slam, adding more incentive and nerves to the proceedings.

Fortunately for golf fans, few tournaments offer more extensive coverage than this year’s PGA. ESPN will carry 12 straight hours of coverage on Thursday and Friday, split between the TV network and ESPN+, which will also carry Featured Group and Featured Hole coverage all four days. The exhaustive coverage for the weekend will be split between ESPN+, ESPN and CBS.
