The excitement of the PGA Championship 2019 arrives with the first round on Thursday, and viewers will be able to watch coverage of the major tournament as it takes place from New York.

Amongst the top golf stars on display will be Tiger Woods. Here’s all you need to know about the PGA Championship live stream and TV coverage schedule.

Tiger Woods leads PGA odds for contenders

There’s no doubt that Tiger Woods will be under the spotlight as the tournament goes down at Bethpage State Park in Farmington. He’s coming off a return to form with another green jacket win so all eyes will once again be on Tiger. He’s also amongst the top favorites to win the PGA Championship at 8-1.

By the way, Tiger is looking to make some major history. If he wins this one, he’ll tie Sam Snead with 82 PGA Tour wins. That’s the most in PGA history. He’ll have plenty of contenders to watch out form, though, including the reigning champion at this event.

Brooks Koepka is the 2018 PGA Championship winner and holds 12-1 odds as the tournament begins. Also amongst top contenders are Dustin Johnson (9-1), Rory McIlroy (12-1), Justin Thomas (12-1), and Rickie Fowler (20-1). There’s also Jordan Spieth who is in a major slump and seems due a win at some point. Spieth holds 25-1 odds as The Championship arrives.
