      Open the Open app on your smart phone or PC.
      It’s free, you get live feature holes, updates and commentary. You can also listen to The open radio, which is surprisingly entertaining.

      yep, why not free to air for the average aussie? Instead of the all too familiar bias toward the upper class and warped expectation of society ..materialistic and capitalistic world mentality.. (similar to living under a dictatorship really) Take what your given. Who decided that a person should pay to watch golf? or football, When did they re-become an elitist pastime?
      Sorry, just really annoyed … I’m going to miss it, but dammed if I’m succumbing and paying to watch a bloody TV …xx Gnite.

    I agree. Should be able to see one of the most important golf tournaments without paying for it.

    Don’t the TV channels think anyone in Australia watches golf. Even the news only mention snippets even though we have two players in the top ten. One of them the World #1

      Sad to say, despite what us golfers think, golf simply does not rate on tv in Australia.
