Golf Fans with an Antenna Can Catch the CBS Weekend Coverage
CBS will be sharing weekend coverage of the PGA Championship with TNT.

To watch CBS’ coverage of the 2017 PGA Championship, you’ll need an antenna. Check out our guide on how to choose a good antenna.
New PGA Tour Live Service Provides Some Coverage
Within the last couple weeks, the PGA has launched its own standalone streaming service, PGA Tour Live. For $5.99 a month, the service offers some streaming coverage of PGA tournaments throughout the year. However, this won’t let you watch the PGA Championship online in its entirety. Instead, PGA Tour Live just offers early round coverage of selected groups on Thursdays and Fridays.
