In the 2015 Senior Open Championship, an array of esteemed golf champions will compete for this year’s Senior Open trophy. Big-name golfers, from the United States and Europe, including Sir Nick Faldo, Tom Watson, and more, will go at it at the Sunningdale Golf Club in England from July 23-26. The competition, presented by Rolex, will be highly competitive and is sure to provide plenty of dramatic moments, making it a must-see event. Luckily, you don’t need cable to watch the Senior Open Championship online.
This year’s Senior Open Championship will be broadcast exclusively on ESPN2 and Sky Sports networks in the United States and the UK respectively, but thanks to a new streaming service, this doesn’t prevent golf fans without cable subscriptions from getting in on the action. Read on for everything you need to know to legally watch the Senior Open Championship online.
Sling TV Gives US Golf Fans Easy Way to Watch the Senior Open Championship Live Stream
For golf fans in the United States, the best way to view the 2015 Senior Open Championship online without cable is to subscribe to Sling TV.
