A sport like golf requires somebody to help you understand it. A boring narrator that does not react when a hole in one takes place is not the right companion for first time golf watchers. Those who have experience with golf might be able to overcome it, but a newcomer needs some excitement unless they already know the amount of skill and mental fortitude needed to play golf at that level.
Regardless, there are plenty of TV and live stream options for golf fans all over the world. Here are the best of those.
The Golf Channel
Available on broadcast all over the world and as a streaming service, the Golf Channel is an obvious place to start. No list should be complete without it, albeit hardcore golf fans have found either cheaper or friendlier alternatives. Depending on where you are in the world, the price will vary but you should expect no less than 50 US dollars per month.
Hulu + Sports
Hulu is a streaming service, a competitor to Netflix, which has its own perks and benefits. One of these perks is that you can watch sports, depending on the subscription plan you have. Some prefer the sports + ads plan while others prefer the full plan without ads. Your monthly price will vary from 50 to 70 USD, depending on what you choose. Hulu has plenty of options which makes it a great overall choice.
YouTube TV is a great choice for everyone who wants to watch almost anything. With well over 100 channels which you can stream anywhere, YouTube TV gives you anything from documentaries, movies, TV shows, to sports, including golf coverage. At 65 USD per month, however, it is pricy, but you get what you pay for and in this case, it might be too much for a golf fan or just right if you wanted more than just golf.
FuboTV, as the name suggests, gives you plenty of TV channels, over 114 of them in their basic package, including ESPN and many sports channels, which does include the Golf Channel. This is a great way to get your hands on plenty of things to watch, for the price of 65 USD, which is their basic plan. They offer higher priced plans with more channels and options, depending on your needs.
Golf.tv is the official way to view the PGA Tour and it is cheaper than many of the other streaming services, much cheaper, in fact. It costs 6.99 for the standard plan and 9.99 for the full plan. This does mean that you only get all things PGA and nothing from the other tours, of which there are many and most people who watch golf watch more than the PGA.
Now.tv provides services of the British Sky network and that means plenty of golf should you choose to subscribe to their plans. Their sports subscription plan starts at 47 dollars per month and you could expand it if you wanted more options like entertainment channels or anything else. They have a flexible pricing option.
Golf can be watched online, and these are your best options, other than the Golf Channel, Sky sports and other similar broadcast channels.
