Payne’s Valley Cup start time, schedule

Payne’s Valley Cup begins at 3 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. BST / 12 p.m. PT, today (Tuesday, September 22). It airs on the Golf Channel. 

Today, Tiger's the host for the Payne’s Valley Cup live stream, where he and three other titans of the links will compete for charity. The event takes place at the Payne’s Valley Golf Course at Big Cedar Lodge, and commemorates the opening of the course, which is Woods' first designed course of his own.

Tiger's teaming up with Justin Thomas, the world's no. 3 ranked men's golfer, to form Team United States, which will take on Team Europe: Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose. At Last Weekend's U.S. Open tour stop at the Winged Foot West course, McIlroy placed the highest of the four, at 6-over.

All four golfers will be mic'd up for this made-for-TV event, which has three kinds of matches: Fourball, Foursomes and Singles. Each of the golfers has been a part of winning Ryder Cut teams in the past, and we're curious as to how this 18-hole match will see them fare, especially as this will be referred to as Woods' "home course." 

The course's name, as you may have guessed, pays homage to Payne Stewart, the World Golf Hall-of-Famer. 

As you also might have (correctly) assumed, your TV or other device will be the only way to watch the Payne’s Valley Cup, as the event is closed to the public.
