Heading into the final round at St. Andrews Sunday, Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland and Viktor Hovland of Norway are tied atop the leaderboard after both shooting 66 in round three, enough to overtake American Cameron Young by four shots. South Korean Si Woo Kim and Americans Dustin Johnson and Scotty Scheffler remain within striking distance. Tiger Woods had a short stay, missing the cut after two poor rounds on the Old Course.

With the time difference between Scotland and the US, golf fans across the pond will need to get up early to watch the final round. Live coverage begins at 4 a.m. ET (1 a.m. PT) on Sunday. Here's what you need to know to watch the world's best golfers battle the tough conditions and unpredictable weather on Scotland's east coast.
