What channel is Olympic Golf on? How to watch all the action in Japan
This year’s Olympic Golf competition begins on Thursday in Tokyo, although that means it starts Wednesday night for everyone tuning in from the States.
The Olympic men’s golf competition is Thursday to Sunday local, although the first round will actually be broadcast beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday night due to the time difference. The entire tournament can be found on Golf Channel.
The Olympic women’s golf competition is Aug. 4-7 local, which means it starts Aug. 3 in the U.S. That will also be live on Golf Channel.
Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa, Xander Schauffele and Patrick Reed will compete for the USA in the men’s competition, and Nelly Korda, Danielle Kang, Lexi Thompson and Jessica Korda will represent the USA for the women’s competition. Both tournaments are at Kasumigaseki Country Club in Kasahata, Saitama, Japan, about 35 miles outside of Tokyo.
