The coronavirus forced a significant re-shuffle of the 2020 PGA Tour schedule. The showpiece golf majors in particular were played in highly unusual times of the year or, in the case of the British Open, cancelled altogether.

So far in 2021 the situation has returned to semi-normal, with fans also now returning to the fairways. Previously the final major of the season, the PGA Championship was moved to second up after The Masters in 2019 and returns there this year.

This year's tournament is being held on the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, South Carolina and has an $US11 million purse.

When is the 2021 PGA Championship?

This year's tournament will suit night owls due to the time difference in Australia. Each round is being broadcast live from 3am-9am AEST from Friday 21 May through Monday 24 May. There are also condensed replays of the action from each round available later in the day.

How to watch the PGA Championship in Australia

This year's tournament is again being broadcast by Fox Sports. That means Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now and Kayo Sports are your options for catching the world's best golfers in action.

Stream the PGA Championship on Kayo Sports

If you are yet to try it out, Kayo has a 14-day free trial for new users. So you can watch all four rounds of the golf and so much more without paying a cent.

At $25 per month with no contract after the trial period, Kayo is significantly cheaper than either Foxtel iQ or Foxtel Now. That gives you access to two screens or devices. For $35/month the premium option gives you a third screen.

A futuristic UI creates a Netflix-style browsing experience where you can see over 50 sports live and on-demand alongside some stunning viewing experiences unique to Kayo. They include SplitView (watch four sports at once), picture-in-picture mode, hide scores, jump to key moments, Kayo Minis and more.

We have a full review of the service for you. The platform is compatible with Android, iOS, Apple TV, Telstra TV, Android TV and Samsung TV (2017 or later), Sony Bravia TVs, Mac and PC as well as Chromecast or AirPlay.

While Tiger Woods will be missing from this year's PGA Championship as he recovers from his serious car accident, you can still stream plenty of content on the superstar this week. A new documentary, 25 years of Tiger, is now available on Kayo. There is also the two-part doco called Tiger that is available over on entertainment streaming platform Binge.

Stream Kayo Sports for 14 days FREE and no lock-in contract

Take Kayo Sports' Basic or Premium plan for a spin and stream over 50 sports live completely free for 14 days.

Watch the PGA Championship on Foxtel Now

You can also watch the PGA Championship through Foxtel Now or Foxtel iQ. Both of these services offer the exact same broadcast as Kayo Sports, but without any of the unique viewing features. Also, with Foxtel Now you can't subscribe just to the Sports Pack.

You have to subscribe to the Essentials pack in addition to the Sports pack which costs $54/month all up. If you haven't tried it previously, there is a 10-day free trial. We have also put together a full guide which includes the list of compatible devices.

Is the PGA Championship on free-to-air TV in Australia?

The PGA Championship is not being shown on any of Australia's free-to-air channels. If you want to watch the golf in Australia either live or on replay, you're going to have to do it through Foxtel or Kayo Sports.

Players to watch at the 2021 PGA Championship

As you would expect at a major championship, there is another hot field in South Carolina this week. Each of the world's top 10 golfers in the rankings are competing, led by the top-ranked Dustin Johnson. Veterans Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson and John Daly are also in the field.

Australians are well represented this year, with eight Aussies teeing it up, led by usual suspects Cameron Smith, Adam Scott, Marc Leishman and 2015 PGA Championship winner, Jason Day.
