This year marks the 121st United States Amateur Championship as golfers from around the world compete at Oakmont Country Club located in Oakmont, Pennsylvania. The event runs from August 9th-15th. You can expect the action to really heat up over the weekend as a new champion will be crowned on Sunday. This is a great path for amateur golfers as they work their way to the PGA Tour. You are guaranteed to see some future stars in the making. Given the young age of PGA superstars like Jordan Spieth and the success of Tiger Woods, it’s not hard to see how the amateurs of today could soon be very successful on the tour. Watch all the action of the US Amateur Golf Championship with a VPN.
The 2021 U. S. Amateur Golf Championship will be televised starting with the round of 64 matches on Wednesday and ending with the championship match on Sunday.

Since the primary broadcast channels for the US Amateur Golf Championship are Fox and Fox Sports, you will need a cable or satellite subscription to watch most of the action. However, USGA.org will have some bonus coverage on Thursday and Sunday. If you are in the United States and have a valid login then watching the tournament will be simple. The problem comes if you happen to be traveling outside the US during the event. In this case, you would want to connect to a VPN server in the US to avoid geo-restrictions that would otherwise block you from watching the event live. The same is true for other popular streaming sites like Amazon, Hulu, Sling TV (ESPN), and many more channels.
Winning the US Amateur Golf Championship means an automatic invitation to the Master’s Tournament, U. S. Open, and The Open Championship (also known as the British Open). The runner-up receives an invitation to play at the Master’s and U. S. Open as well. Needless to say, the best amateur golfers will be doing everything they can to compete to earn the right to play at the Master’s in Augusta next April. From there, who knows what the future may bring. Perhaps we will find the next Jordan Spieth or Tiger Woods in this year’s tournament. Famous golfers including Bobby Jones and Tiger Woods won the US Amateur Championship multiple times before going on to win several majors in the PGA tour.
Golf is no longer the same sport it was at one time. We can thank several golfers for the shift in attitude. Many do not realize how much Tiger Woods changed the game of Golf. Today, golfers are more athletic. It is now common to hear of players hitting the gym for strength training or cardio-vascular work. Truly, the sport has become more accessible to everyone. You can expect to see players of all ages and from all different walks of life.
