The PGA Championship 2021 golf tournament finishes today (Sunday, May 23) at 7 a.m. ET. In the U.S., play will start on ESPN and continue on CBS and its services. But you can watch your country's coverage no matter where in the world you are by grabbing a VPN.

Watching a PGA Championship 2021 live stream of the final round from Kiawah Island will be a fascinating and potentially history-making experience.

Phil Mickelson stands one shot clear of the field after three rounds and if the 50-year-old can hold on to his lead, he'd become the oldest Major winner ever.

At one stage yesterday, the five-times Major winner was five shots clear of the pack, only for Brooks Koepka and Louis Oosthuizen to draw level as the day went on. But both dropped shots late on, giving Mickelson a one-stroke advantage over Koepka and two over Oosthuizen as we enter the final day. 

Can Mickelson hold on? We can't wait to find out. And the good news is that there are lots of ways you can tune in to a PGA Championship 2021 live stream. Here's how to watch the PGA Championship 2021 live online, wherever you are in the world. 

PGA Championship 2021 live stream: How to watch the PGA Championship golf anywhere via a VPN

If you're worried about how to watch the PGA Championship 2021 live stream when you're away from home and can't access your usual streaming services, fear not. A virtual private network, or VPN, makes it so that you can appear to be surfing the web from your home town, so you can access the same streaming services you've already paid for. 

Unsure which is the best VPN for you? We've tested a bunch of services and our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, which offers superb speeds and excellent customer service. But you've got other VPN options as well.

If you're in the U.S. and want to watch the PGA Championship 2021 live stream of the final round in its entirety, you'll need both ESPN and CBS. That's because ESPN has the rights to the early play, while CBS will take over for the conclusion.

Coverage will start on ESPN Plus, the streaming service you can bundle with Hulu and Disney Plus, before the traditional cable version of ESPN tees off at 10 a.m. ET / 7 a.m. PT. 

Then, from 1 p.m. ET, CBS will have the remainder of the play — including the potentially crucial final holes.

If you've cut the cord, there are lots of options for watching ESPN. Our favorites for the first two rounds would be Sling Orange and FuboTV, both of which cover the service. For the final two days, if you already have CBS on cable then you're good: just head to the CBS website and log in with your cable credentials, and you'll be able to watch a PGA Championship 2021 live stream online.

If not, then FuboTV will be your friend, because it includes both ESPN and CBS in its starter plan. For a fee of $65, you get a whopping 122 channels including ABC, FOX and NBC, plus sports channels such as NFL Network, the Big Ten Network and the Golf Channel. 

Alternatively, you could tune into the final round of the Masters 2021 live stream via CBS' new Paramount Plus streaming service. It costs just $5.99 per month with ads or $9.99 without. 

And don't forget, if you're usually based in the U.S. but aren't at home right now you can still watch the services you subscribe to by using a VPN such as ExpressVPN.

Fubo.TV

If you love sports, you'll want to check out Fubo.TV. It's got a 7-day free trial, so you don't need to pay up front, and features dozens of channels including CBS, ESPN and the Golf Channel.
