TSN Has the 111th US Open Championship

This weekend Congressional Golf Club in Bethesda, Maryland welcomes the best golfers in the world for the 111th US Open Golf Championship. TSN will have complete coverage of all four rounds beginning on Thursday morning. TSN will air 9 hours of coverage of each of the first two rounds, and 6 hours of coverage of each of the weekend rounds. That means a total of 30 hours of live coverage of the US Open will be available on Canadian TV. Irishman Graeme McDowell returns to defend his Championship. TSN will have Cory Woron, Jim Nelford and Bob Weekes in Maryland for preview and post-game shows each day.

TSN will latch on to the ESPN and NBC broadcasts throughout the tournaments. ESPN’s coverage will include the two crews of Chris Berman and Roger Maltbie (start and end of each day) and Mike Tirico and Paul Azinger (middle of each day) in the 18th hole tower. Hole announcers will be Curtis Strange, Scott Van Pelt, Terry Gannon and Sean McDonough. Andy North and Billy Kratzert will serve as on-course reporters. Rick Reilly will provide interviews and essays.

NBC’s broadcast team will feature Bob Costas hosting, with Dan Hicks and Johnny Miller in the 18th tower. Gary Koch and Peter Jacobson will serve as tower reporters.
