PGA Tour Charles Schwab Challenge

The PGA Tour returns with a star-studded field set for the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Country Club in Texas. This is how to watch.

The world's top-five ranked golfers, including world number one Rory McIlroy, are all in the field as the PGA Tour gets back underway with the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Country Club.

Like most professional sporting competitions around the world, the PGA Tour had a forced hiatus due to coronavirus. The entire schedule has been pushed back, including all four major tournaments.

When is the Charles Schwab Challenge?

The Charles Schwab Challenge follows the traditional format of four rounds of golf from Thursday to Sunday in the US. That equates to Friday 12 June to Monday 15 June Australian time. The first 2 rounds will be broadcast from 6am–9am AEST, with the final 2 rounds shown from 3am–8am AEST. There will be no spectators in attendance and social distancing protocols will be used.

How to watch the Charles Schwab Challenge

The home of golf in Australia is Fox Sports. That means Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now and Kayo Sports are your viewing options for some live golf action this week.
