PGA Championship 2019: Tee times, how to watch Tiger Woods live without cable

Tiger faces stiff competition on Long Island. Here's how cord cutters can catch today's action.

The Masters - Final Round

Golf's fourth major is moving up, if not in prestige -- it still ranks behind The Masters, US Open and British Open -- then on the calendar. The PGA Championship has been played after the other three majors in August since 1949, but this year it makes the leap to mid-May.

Fresh off of his comeback for the ages at the Masters, Tiger Woods is the favorite this week at the PGA Championship despite the fact that nobody has won both it and the Masters in the same season since Jack Nicklaus in 1975. Tiger is seeking his fifth career win at Bethpage, but faces a crowded field that includes defending champion Brooks Koepka along with Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth.

Here's what you need to know to watch the golf this week.

  • What: 2019 PGA Championship
  • When: May 16-19
  • Where: The Bethpage Black Course, Farmingdale, New York
  • TV channels:  CBS and TNT
