It's a safe bet that the grouping of Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson will garner a lot of eye balls during the first two rounds of the 2012 U.S. Open starting Thursday. In order to accommodate all interested spectators, the U.S. Open announced Tuesday that it will host an exclusive stream of the first 90 minutes of action at usopen.com, with special attention being paid to the marquee trio.
"This is the one of the most exciting times of the year for golf fans and we've created a destination for them to follow a marquee pairing at the U.S. Open," said USGA Executive Director Mike Davis. "We're thrilled to be using our digital platforms in this way so fans have a virtual front row seat to watch three of the world's most accomplished players compete in our national championship."
Coverage will switch to ESPN's broadcast beginning at noon ET. Those with smart phones can download the "U.S. Open Golf Championship" application to watch on their mobile devices.
