PGA Championship 2021: TV schedule today, how to watch and more

Golf’s second major starts Thursday when the PGA Championship gets underway in Kiawah Island, South Carolina. It’s the second time the PGA has been played here. In 2012, Rory McIlroy won his second major title at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort. 

Fresh off a win at the Wells Fargo Championship, the former world no. 1 player is seeking his fifth major and first since winning the PGA Championship in 2014. McIlroy is the favorite heading into the tournament at 11-1. Other contenders this week include Jon Rahm (14-1), Justin Thomas (14-1), Bryson DeChambeau (16-1), Jordan Spieth (16-1) and Dustin Johnson (18-1).

You can also watch portions of the tournament on Paramount Plus and ESPN Plus. Paramount Plus will have a simulcast of CBS’s TV coverage over the weekend, while ESPN Plus will simulcast ESPN’s TV coverage each day of the tournament as well as additional coverage including featured holes and groups.

If you live in an area with good reception, you can watch the final round on CBS for free on over-the-air broadcast channels just by attaching an affordable (under $30) indoor antenna to nearly any TV.

Sling TV’s $35-a-month Orange plan includes ESPN. Neither the Orange nor the Blue plan includes CBS.
