ESPN TV Schedule for The Open Set for Sunday, Monday

With The Open at Scotland’s St Andrews links course now set to finish on Monday after two days of weather delays, ESPN has finalized its television schedule for live coverage of the completion of the championship.

The 144th renewal of golf’s oldest major was affected by rain on Friday, delayed more than three hours, and then delayed more than 10 hours on Saturday by high winds that made the course unplayable. As a result, Round 2 had to be completed on Saturday, Round 3 was pushed to Sunday and Round 4 was moved to Monday.

ESPN’s live telecast of Round 3 will begin at 7 a.m. ET (noon in Scotland), with the telecast of Monday’s final round set to begin at 6 a.m. ET (11 a.m. in Scotland). Round 4 will re-air on ESPN2 at 7 p.m. ET on Monday.

ESPN3 will offer options for a second-screen experience during the ESPN telecast, including a Featured Players feed on Sunday. The feed will open at 7 a.m. and will join the Phil Mickelson/Gary Woodland pairing in progress. Then at 8:30 a.m., the Featured Players feed will tee off with the Jordan Spieth/Sergio Garcia pairing. The Spieth/Garcia feed also will be simulcast on Longhorn Network.
