Watch the British Open Championship live stream with a VPN

Published: Nov 30, 2017

While the other three golf majors are known for pristine greens and clear blue skies, the British Open can be pretty wet and wild.

Played on the UK’s toughest and best links courses — that is, courses built on coastal landscapes — players often have to battle heavy rough and strong weather.

How a VPN helps you stream live golf

A VPN, or virtual private network, makes it possible to route your Internet connection and all its associated traffic through a server in the country of your choice.

When you connect to a VPN,  you also get an added layer of security with minimal speed loss.

 And you can even stream in HD! Yup, it’s that awesome.

  1. Hi,
    I live and work in Amman, Jordan. Will it work for me to get a VPN? As far as I can read it only mentions US and UK. I want to watch The Open (Golf).
