Stream the Ryder Cup With a VPN

The Ryder Cup heads back to America this year — and Team USA will be hoping they can win on home soil after losing to Europe three times on the trot.

There’s one thing you can count on, though: A VPN can help you watch it. How? Well, read on…

A VPN Is Your Golden Ticket to the Ryder Cup

Wondering how a VPN, or virtual private network, works? It’s simpler than a 2-foot putt on a flat green.

When you connect to a VPN server in another country, websites you visit think you’re in that country. So your IP address changes, keeping your real one safe and secure.

With ExpressVPN, you can choose from VPN servers in more than 78 different countries. That’s a lot of choices, and a lot of live sports!

The Ryder Cup Takes Place September 30th to October 2nd

The 41st Ryder Cup will be hosted by the Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota. It’s a prestigious course that also hosted the 1970 and 1991 US Opens, and the 2002 and 2009 PGA Championships.

On Team USA, captain Davis Love III will be joined by vice-captains Jim Furyk, Steve Stricker and Tiger Woods. Darren Clarke will captain Team Europe.

Here are a few options to help you stream live online with a VPN.

Stream Every Match Live on NBC Golf Channel (USA)

NBC Golf Channel showed every single 2014 Ryder Cup match live, and they’re set to do the same in 2016.

Here’s how to watch the Ryder Cup on the Golf Channel:

  1. Connect to a US ExpressVPN server.
  2. Visit and sign in (you may need a US cable or satellite subscription)
  3. Settle in for three days of great golf.

Watch Sky Sports (UK) Ryder Cup Coverage When Abroad

British Sky Sports is also showing every Ryder Cup 2016 match live. Their Web player and apps aren’t available outside the UK, but a VPN can pitch you right over the green.

Follow these steps to stream the Ryder Cup on Sky Sports with a VPN:

  1. Connect to a UK ExpressVPN server.
  2. Visit or open your Sky Go app (you need a UK Sky Sports subscription, or you can buy a Now TV day pass).
  3. Start watching another memorable tournament.

It’s as easy as that.

Ryder Cup 2016 Schedule

The Ryder Cup has followed the same format since 1979, and this year is no different. Here’s what to expect on each day of the competition.

  • Sept 30th: 4 x fourball (better ball) and 4 x foursome (alternate shot) matches
  • Oct 1st: 4 x fourball and 4 x foursome matches
  • Oct 2nd: 12 x singles matches

Can Team USA Show What They’re Made Of?

So, can the USA finally do it? Or will Europe win a 4th consecutive cup? Maybe the incredible talent of Jordan Spieth and Bubba Watson can lead America to victory. Or maybe Clarke and McIlroy’s men will continue to boss it.

Cheer your favorite team on in the comments. And make sure you set up your VPN!

  1. Hi
    Going to turkey and will be away for the Ryder Cup.
    I have Sky Sports on my laptop so can I log on VPN in Turkey and watch Sky Sports ?



    1. Hey Andrew. That’s right, though you’ll need to have an existing Sky subscription. If you already have one, simply connect to a VPN server location in the UK and stream away.
