US Open 2021 golf tournament is holding the third round today, with more action through Sunday, June 20. Coverage is airing on NBC, Golf Channel and Peacock. 
But you can watch your country's coverage no matter where in the world you are by grabbing a VPN.

The final round of the U.S. Open live streams is upon us, and the leaders include two names you may not have expected. Mackenzie Hughes (Canada), Russell Henley (USA) and Louis Oosthuizen (South Africa) are all tied at 5 under. 

That said, defending champ Bryson DeChambeau (USA) and Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) are within striking distance at 3 under. Don't go scrolling for Phil Mickelson (USA), as he's at 7 over, and well out of contention after a bad weekend at the office.

Torrey Pines in San Diego is hosting US Open golf tournament for a second time. In 2008, Tiger Woods won an epic Monday playoff over Rocco Mediate.

This time, to maintain health and safety protocols, there will be limited fans in attendance.

Here's how to watch US Open 2021 golf live online, wherever you are in the world.

If you're in the U.S. and want to watch the US Open 2021 live stream of third PGA tournament of the year, you'll need NBC and the Golf Channel. Peacock will also stream some of the US Open. 

Coverage of the first round is currently airing today, Thursday, June 17. See below for the full TV schedule.

To get NBC, you need one of the best TV antennas, while you need a cable package for the Golf Channel.

If you've cut the cord, there are lots of options for watching NBC and the Golf Channel. Our favorites are Sling and FuboTV

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. The Starter Plan ($64.99) features dozens of channels including NBC and the Golf Channel, as well as ESPN, Fox Sports and more.

Sling TV

Sling TV is one of the best values among cable alternatives. The Sling Blue package comes with 30-plus channels in the lineup, including NBC (in select markets). You'll need the Sports Extra add-on to get the Golf Channel, though.

Peacock

Peacock is one of the newest streaming services but houses a great library, including the entirety of The Office. It's also home to a ton of sports, including the upcoming Olympics, Premier League matches and WWE wrestling.
