How to stream British Open golf live?

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.

  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).
