The US Open 2015 is a great tradition of golf, on the official schedule of both the PGA Tour and the European Tour. This year marks its 120th anniversary (although it is the 115 playing), and will be held at Chambers Bay, a public golf course in University Place, Washington. For those who are interested in watching the grand golf game from home, this is what is known about the US Open Golf 2015 TV Schedule, as well as how to Live stream.
According to Bleacher Report, Chambers Bay has come under fire by some of the 2015 US Open golfers due to its links style that features wide fairways, huge greens, an abundance of fescue and few trees. Some, like Bob Harig of ESPN.com, have compared the course to that of a British Open rather than a US Open. This leads to a possibility of American players having the disadvantage when playing against their European counterparts.
Golf Digest's The Loop says that the US Open is the centerpiece of Fox Sports' entry into golf coverage, and the network pays $100 million just to televise the USGA events. Greg Norman will serve as the lead analyst while Joe Buck will anchor the telecasts.
In watching the game, there will be some interesting technologies on display as the US Open will be covered by drone flyovers, as well as drop-down remote robotics cameras around the course. There will even be a small remote-controlled car with an HD camera attached to it, not to mention some rail cams and...an augmented reality experience?
As Fox coordinating producer Mark Loomis has said: "We're trying to get some dimensions to the greens, increase the audio from the course, and give you a better look of what the shot looks like to the golfer from the golfer's view. The technology is part of the experience. It's not the experience."
As for the US Open Schedule, this is a schedule for the date, time (in Eastern Time), and the channels.
