LIV Golf Portland tee times, TV coverage, live streams & more to watch Rounds 1-3

The LIV Golf tour made its debut in London a few weeks ago, and golf fans were intrigued by the first tournament. Now, the Saudi-backed start-up tour will look to continue to build momentum as it plays in Portland, Oregon.

LIV Golf Portland will begin on Thursday, and the three-day, 54-hole tournament is set to be a bit more exciting than the first. With well-known major winners like Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau and Patrick Reed jumping from the PGA Tour to LIV Golf, the field is looking a bit stronger than it did in London.

The three former major winners are joined by Dustin Johnson, the No. 17 ranked player in the world, and veteran Phil Mickelson, who last year became the oldest player to win a major in golf history. Those names alone will demand attention from golf fanatics and casual fans alike.

As such, plenty of viewers will be interested in catching the action at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club. How can they do it? Here’s a breakdown of the ways to watch and live stream LIV Golf Portland.
