US Open live stream: how to watch 2019 Pebble Beach golf Round 1 online from anywhere
Pebble Beach is the fabulous setting of the 2019 US Open championship. The big question is whether Brooks Koepka be stopped after winning the last two editions of the US Open and coming off the back of an impressive PGA Championship victory. Koepka will certainly have a target on his back for 2019's third major. We'll tell you how to watch the highs and lows of the US Open from anywhere in the world – and there's even a FREE live stream to enjoy, too.
And yet, despite Koepka's awesome major form and his standing as world number one, the bookies still somehow aren't making him the favorite for this one. It's the ever-threatening Dustin Johnson who's attracting the punters' cash ahead of this one – his only major win to date came at the 2016 US Open. Surely he's finally due another. But then another former champ Rory McIlroy will be fancying his chances, too, after destroying the competition at last weekend's Canadian Open and starting well at Pebble Beach.
But what of the resurgent Tiger Woods? He completed his remarkable comeback trail by winning the US Masters in April. And his hunger for titles surely won't end there – he'll have fond memories of Pebble Beach as Tiger still has the record for the biggest ever winning margin in a major tournament at this very course at the 2000 US Open.
Kevin Na and Patrick Cantlay have recent wins on the PGA Tour and could be decent outside picks for this one. While the likes of Jordan Spieth, Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler, Jon Rahm and Hideki Matsuyama will all inevitably be towards the top of the leaderboard by the time we get to the final round on Sunday.
The great news is that you can see exactly how it will all play out – the birdies, the bogeys and everything in-between – for free, because the official US Open website will be hosting a live stream. We can tell you how to watch it all, even if you're outside the United States. Keep reading to see how to get a 2019 US Open golf live stream from any corner of the Earth.

Live stream golf for free at USOpen.com
Well here's a stroke of good news (pun very much intended) if you're looking to casually follow the golf online. The official tournament website, USOpen.com, will be live streaming some of the best action.
But, it's very limited in what it can offer this week. The schedule currently says that it will be showing a US Open live stream of featured groups every single day, as well as shots at holes, 7, 8 and 17. That's great if you're only interested in following the players it selects for you, but not so good if you want full and proper coverage.
Aside from the USOpen.com live stream, we have more US watching options below.

We're going to guess that if you've landed on this page, you're going to want something more extensive than that free stream described above. For you, we have full details on which networks are showing the golf in the US, UK, Canada and Australia.
Try to watch your domestic US Open coverage while out of the country however, and you'll soon be faced with a block. That's because broadcasters implement a geo-restriction to stop non-nationals from watching their coverage. Fair enough, but annoying if you've paid for a pricey subscription and still want to watch.
