The exciting golf season continues this summer with the 2015 Women’s British Open. The competition is one of the major tournaments in all of golf, and it’s set to take place from July 30-August 2 on the Alisa Course of the Trump Turnberry Resort in South Ayrshire, Scotland. While the tournament will be broadcasted on ESPN2, the good news is you can legally watch the Women’s British Open online without cable.
Now in its 39th year, the Women’s British Open remains one of only two LPGA majors played outside of the United States. Last year’s winner of the Open, American Mo Martin, will return to attempt to reclaim her place. But she’ll have plenty of competition. Teenage superstar Lydia Ko – currently ranked number two in the world – will be playing, as will home-nation British golfers Dame Laura Davis, Catriona Matthew and Charley Hull. All things considered, the 2015 Women’s British Open is sure to be a must-see event.
Read on to learn how you can legally watch the Women’s British Open live stream if you don’t have cable.
Sling TV Allows U.S. Golf Fans to Live Stream the 2015 Women’s British Open
American golf fans without cable can still enjoy in-depth coverage of the Women’s British Open on ESPN2 thanks to Sling TV. What is Sling TV? It’s an internet TV service from Dish Network that lets subscribers stream a number of popular pay-TV channels, including ESPN and ESPN2. In fact, Sling TV is the first and only streaming service to offer the ESPN family of networks.
You can watch Sling TV on most devices, including PC and Mac, iOS and Android phones, iOS and Android tablets, and streaming players for the TV (Roku 3, Roku Streaming Stick, Google Nexus, Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick, and Xbox One).
Sling TV starts at just $20 a month, and it includes more than just the ESPN networks. Subscribers to the basic package also get AMC, TNT, CNN, TBS, Food Network, HGTV, and many other channels — over 20 in all. Here’s the best part — there’s no contract. You pay month-to-month, just like you do with Netflix and other streaming services, and you can cancel any time.
Want to try Sling TV to see if it’s right for you? Right now, they are offering a free 7-day trial to all new subscribers. This lets you test out the service for one week with no obligation. That means you can watch the Women’s British Open online in full without paying a cent.
If you’re planning on keeping Sling TV a little longer, like through the rest of the golf season, there’s a limited-time deal you might be interested in. When you sign up for three months of service, you can get a Roku 3 for 50% off its regular price, or you can get a Roku Streaming Stick absolutely free. Both of these streaming players are excellent and will let you watch Sling TV and over 2,000 other streaming services (like Netflix, Amazon Prime Instant Video, Hulu, etc.) on your TV.

Fans with an Antenna Can Watch a Final Round Replay on ABC
If streaming the tournament on Sling TV isn’t your thing, you can still watch a small amount of the Women’s British Open without cable. Over-the-air network ABC will offer an encore presentation of the final rounds of the competition, as well as selected highlights from the entire tournament. You’ll need an antenna to watch ABC. If you don’t have one, I recommend the Mohu Leaf 50. It’s a powerful antenna that picks up signals as far as 50 miles away, and it has a super-thin, stylish design that looks good in any room. This antenna will let you watch ABC’s coverage in crystal-clear HD.
