So I either buy nbc for a month or visit my mother in law for the next two Sunday mornings. This is shaping up to be pretty interesting so I hope to see more than golf channel on my iPad. Thanks for posting the broadcast schedule.

Aloha,

Can you get NBC via an antenna? The over the air picture is actually sharper than some set top boxes because they compress. 

I have Peacock on my Apple TV but have not given them my credit card. Not sure if I will pay for the access to the USO. May do it just to see what it’s like.

I just installed Peacock, but I also have YouTube TV so I'll be able to watch.

My club championship is Sept 17-19, and I plan to spend Sunday the 20th watching the Open.  Most years, our club championship is in August and overlaps the last three days of the PGA Championship.

OTA is still compressed. But often less so, yeah.

I haven't gotten it yet. Is the USO paid, or is it free as they're trying to get more people onboarded?

Score! Mahalo for the ideas so I went poking around apps, and found nbc’s. Now I’m smoking brisket and watching golf.

Aloha

I’m not sure. I would imagine you have to pay for the premium account to get the USO. But according to Deadline, it’s free. I assume the piece means the golf USO not the tennis USO, doesn’t ESPN carry the tennis major?

I would assume the U.S. Open would be free, and if that's what you're reading, I will doubly assume that. 🙂

Yeah makes sense, the action they’re showing is way way before prime time contenders. Plus the getting eyeballs. Guess similar to the free coverage on Amazon Prime. Of all the streaming apps Peacock is the one I like least.

I should ask Google but I'll ask TST instead.  Is this the first major at Winged Foot since the Open was here in 2006?  For the life of me, I can't think of when there has been one since, but it seems off that it'd be fourteen years between appearances for this course.

Some of these courses don't want to give their course up for months every seven to nine years.

Oakmont was nine years apart. 2007 and 2016, so 14 isn't all that odd, IMO.

Maybe it was Oakmont four years ago that I was thinking of when I felt Winged Foot had been more recent.

Thanks!

Oh yeah, US Opens back to back this year. Golf and tennis. Still weird even though the schedule change has been out there for awhile.

Has any of you guys played Winged Foot?  It’s not a course I have much recollection of watching. I’m assuming for the Open(US😉) it will be a fairly tight setup and par is not a bad score?

    • I get it. Didn't go do a fitting. I ordered the clubs with the same specs from my last fitting. Only thing I changed was going from Project X LZ 5.5 to Accura I80 stiff shafts.
    • Use the 2MP camera and just record separate swings. Everyone does. No need to record the same swing - your swing is pretty much the same every time.
    • My travels were to driving to Northern Michigan. Garland (Lewiston, MI) in July was originally planed for May but was pushed back.  Nice thing was they let us keep the “Early Bird” rate.  This was shen I got my 1st Ace 😃. Then went to Treetops (Gaylord, MI) in September.   Both trips involved masks & social distancing but were good, enjoyable trips. The breakfast buffets were cancelled but not a big deal.
    • Good and sad tales, kind of understand that. So I left Oahu that had high concerns of controlling it to an Island that had yet to get 1 case.  All was well until Wednesday 4 popped positive, Thursday 38 and today Friday 60 something. I was tested and none in my circle including an 85 year old woman has had any issues.  So the governor/mayor answer is a lockdown. How do you lockdown an island where the population is but a postage stamp on the entire island? No worries, I plan on golfing next week. I got to log a few more birdies on the 2020 birdie challenge. Aloha, iSank
    • What's the minimum camera quality will you guys consider watching? The rear camera for my phone is 2MP and the front camera is 0.3 MP. I only have one camera and a tripod, so I can't record the side and behind at the same time. Is that OK?
