There is absolutely no way to miss the last 36 holes of the 2012 U.S. Open. Maybe you won't have access to a TV, but that doesn't mean you're doomed.

Here's a complete guide for the last couple of rounds live streaming.


When: Saturday, June 16 and Sunday, June 17

Where: U.S. Open official website

The coverage will be the same for both days:


Live video is set to start at 1 p.m. and end at 10 p.m. ET. The stream will feature holes 8 and 18 and you can follow your favorite golfers on your computer, iPhone or Android phone.

If this is not enough, you can also listen to the radio, it's sponsored by ESPN and the coverage is pretty good. Tune in from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. ET.

Right, so you're a golf junkie, huh? There's more for you. The website has a very nice playtracker which will give you every stat you want, from all the players on the field, round by round. 

It has cool features, like highlighting the toughest and easiest holes, showing bios and players in each pairing, in which hole is every group and live scoring.



Where: Official apps

You have an iPhone or Android smart phone? Great, you can download the official U.S. Open apps, which are free of charge and you'll get live video, highlights, photos, tweets, tee times, groups and stats.


How's Tiger doing?

Tiger Woods showed a solid game in the opening round and on Friday he stayed even, enough to share the lead with Jim Furyk and David Toms. Momentum is still there after his victory at The Memorial a couple of weeks ago. Woods is seeking to win his first major title since 2008, when he defeated Rocco Mediate in a playoff at the U.S. Open held in Torrey Pines Golf Club.


What about Rory, Phil and Bubba?

Rory McIlroy played inconsistently. After missing two cuts of The PLAYERS Championship and the Memorial Tournament, the defending champion shot 77 and 73, 10-over overall. He won't play the last 36 holes.

Phil Mickelson was close to missing the cut, but shot 71, 1-over in the second round to tie for 51st. Mickelson shot an opening round of 76, 6-over and compromised his presence during the weekend.

Bubba Watson shot 78, 8-over on Thursday and on Friday he had a 71, 1-over today, which wasn't enough to make it to the weekend and now the 2012 Masters champ is heading home.
