The PGA Tour is back after a month-long hiatus with the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Watch the top golf stars tee off in the new year live in India!
Golf fans in India will finally have some action to look forward to in 2021 as the PGA Tour tees off with the Sentry Tournament of Champions at the Kapalua Resort, Hawaii early morning on Friday.
A curtain-raiser for the upcoming season, the Sentry Tournament of Champions traditionally fills the field with golfers who have won on the PGA Tour in the preceding calendar year.
However, the truncated nature of 2020, where many events were called off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, means that the Sentry Tournament of Champions has welcomed all qualifiers to the TOUR Championship in addition to PGA Tour winners from 2020.
The event will be the first time that world No. 1 Dustin Johnson will tee off on the Tour since he clinched his maiden Masters title in November, setting a new course record of 20-under at the Augusta National.
After COVID-19 forced the Masters to be held in November last year, the most prestigious golf major returns to its usual window. It begins on April 8. It will also be the first major of the year.
The season’s second major will be the PGA Championship in May, for which defending champion Collin Morikawa would be looking to get in prime form.
The US Open will follow in June and will be held at the Torrey Pines Golf Course in California after it was held at Winged Foot last year, where Bryson DeChambeau blitzed the field to take his first major.
The Open Championship will be the final major of the year in July, following which the top golfers will travel to Japan for the Tokyo Olympics, with the field set to feature several debutants.
The 2021 PGA Tour will kick off with the Sentry Tournament of Champions on Friday, January 8 in India. Live coverage begins at 4.30 AM Indian Standard Time (IST).
Golf fans can watch the broadcast of the PGA Tour on the Eurosport and Eurosport HD TV channels in India.
Live streaming of the PGA Tour will also be available on the subscription-based GolfTV.
