US Open Golf Live: TV and Live Stream Info for Olympic Club Round One
The best thing about the US Open is that the East Coasters don't have to get up at the crack of dawn and still won't miss any of the critical action.
The tournament, which is held in San Francisco this year at The Olympic Club, kicks off at about 7 a.m. PT, which means that the marquee group of Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson tee off at just after 10 a.m. ET.
All of the action will be televised on ESPN beginning at 12 p.m. ET until 3 p.m. ET. After that, it switches to NBC from 3-5 p.m. ET, and then back to ESPN we go for the stretch run from 5-10 p.m. ET.
Who will win this year's US Open?
Although most people will be at work during the best parts of the tournament—which is when the most exciting groups tee off—have no fear. The US Open website is hosting a live video feed that will follow Tiger's crew, beginning at 10:33 a.m. ET. You can watch it online, on your iPhone or on your Droid via USOpen.com.
A second live video feed tracking Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald will be broadcast at USOpen.com beginning at 4:29 p.m. ET.
If there's anything that's going to get the masses excited about this tournament, it's the all-star trio of Woods, Mickelson and Watson. There aren't many who are expecting Watson to compete with them—not even him. He told ESPN.com's Bob Harig that he'd be happy if he didn't have any 80s on his scorecard by Sunday.
Then, there was this tweet:

Maybe Watson's loose attitude will carry him to victory, but given the game-faces Woods and Mickelson are sporting, it looks unlikely.
Mickelson in particular seems thrilled to have been paired with the 13-2 odds-on favorite (via Bovada). Lefty told the Washington Post's Barry Svrluga that Tiger "gets the best" out of him, and he's happy that neither of them will get a tee time advantage.
Tiger, as expected, sported more of a poker face with regards to the grouping. He told Syrluga:
I don’t think we’re going to talk about a lot. This is a major championship. We’ve got work to do. Any extra motivation? No.
There will certainly be a lot to watch for on Thursday during Round 1. May the man best able to withstand the pressure win.
