The challenging Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club will host the 2012 British Open Championship this week in England, as Thursday's opening round is sure to bring plenty of excitement.
Live television coverage of the tournament will begin bright and early Thursday morning at 4:30 a.m. EST on ESPN, and will run until 3:00 p.m. later in the day. An encore broadcast will then be immediately replayed until 6:00 p.m. to catch viewers up on the morning action.
Online streaming coverage will be available much earlier than the TV broadcast, and can be seen at the British Open's official website starting at 12:30 a.m. EST Thursday morning. The Open's official coverage will also be available on both Facebook and LiveStream, and can also be accessed via The Open's iPhone and Android applications.
