Open TV coverage: How to watch the first round at Pebble Beach

Also new for 2019 will be an over-the-top (OTT) app to deliver USGA championship content for fans, which includes free, live streaming coverage of the US Open.

Aside from Koepka, Tiger Woods returns to the stage of arguably his greatest triumph looking for a second major this year.

The Pebble Beach Golf Links is considered a legendary U.S. open course.

Pebble Beach. It is, quite possibly, the quintessential U.S. Open venue - its gorgeous seaside setting steeped in history, its list of champions - Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson and Woods among them - a veritable Mount Rushmore of golf.

Make no mistake: Young, a native of Scarborough in Westchester County, whose father, David, is the head pro at Sleepy Hollow, is not a naïve, wide-eyed, first-timer destined to be an only-timer.

You can stream the U.S. Open online via Fox Sports Go if you have a cable or satellite login.

"Whether that's more important for me than other people... maybe".

It's not unusual for organizers to rave about the condition of a golf course on the eve of a major championship. Who could screw up Pebble Beach?

Attribute some of that to the weather.

The beauty of Pebble Beach's coastal views can distract from the challenge it presents, especially with the pinched fairways and deep rough of a US Open. Fairways are pure. Greens are smooth and not too fast.

Foxconn can make all iPhones outside of China (if necessary)
Apple now has a large iPhone manufacturing base in China - thanks to Foxconn, the Taiwanese based manufacturing company. Affected by the mounting US-China trade tensions, some customers did switch orders to other partners.

'It is not just critical that we have a smooth week for the championship but for the game itself, ' said tournament director, John Bodenhamer. And that's what I need to do most, is just slowly keep reinforcing that - whether I'm going to get back to number one in the world or I am a good player. "It is truly magnificent". That's true at most U.S. Opens - or used to be.

Pebble Beach features the smallest greens on the PGA Tour and will suit McIlroy's sharp iron play. "If you're ever going to have a blueprint of a US Open, this is the one".

"I haven't talked to anybody about going three in a row", Koepka told reporters on Wednesday, as per ESPN.

McIlroy's score of 258 at the Canadian Open was his career-low 72-hole score on the US PGA Tour and his seven-shot win was the event's largest winning margin in 67 years.

Fowler shot a 65 and led after the first round in 2017, finishing in a tie for fifth at Erin Hills. Piercy is playing in his eighth U.S. Open.

"You have to look at those guys differently", Mickelson said.

Different history could be made this weekend as Brooks Kopeka tries to win his third-consecutive U.S. Open.

Mickelson is a five-time champion of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, so if there's one player who can bounce back, it's him. There's been heartbreak, clearly, as well as downright absurdity: remember past year, when he putted a moving ball at Shinnecock?

Woods, who has to carefully manage his fitness and playing load following multiple back surgeries, said Tokyo may be his best realistic chance of playing in an Olympics.
