Ryder Cup 2021 TV coverage: How to watch the Ryder Cup on television and streaming online
The 43rd Ryder Cup, played this week at Wisconsin’s Whistling Straits, features 24 players, 28 matches … and more than 100 hours of live tournament and studio coverage on NBC, Golf Channel, Peacock and RyderCup.com utilizing more than 35 analysts and commentators. Indeed, there might not be a golf tournament in the world that’s more “covered” than the biennial matches, which have an extra layer of anticipation given that this edition was delayed a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Watching on your TV or streaming online won’t necessarily allow you to replicate the raucous atmosphere likely in store at the Pete Dye design hard by Lake Michigan. But it will let you catch all of the action over the three days as the U.S. tries to win for just the third time since 1999.
