2021 U.S. Open: TV Schedule, How to Watch, Viewers’ Guide

See how to watch the 2021 U.S. Open coverage at Torrey Pines.

It’s almost U.S. Open week, which means it’s time to start planning your Father’s Day schedule around the U.S. Open coverage.

After a COVID-delayed event in 2020, the U.S. Open Championship is realigned with Father’s Day this year. The 121st U.S. Open features robust TV coverage and streaming as the PGA Tour takes on Torrey Pines. Tiger Woods won the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines in 2008, but he will not be part of the field this year as he recovers from a car crash.

Instead, coming off his historic PGA Championship win, many eyes will be on Phil Mickelson - does he have a shot of winning majors back to back? As always, Bryson DeChambeau will be in the spotlight as he defends his 2020 U.S. Open win at Winged Foot. Will his power help or hurt him at Torrey Pines?

Then there’s Patrick Reed, who won the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines earlier this year. With his top-20 finish at the PGA Championship, he may be a threat. Check in with our staff to see who else you should be betting on this year.
