Golf fans not happy with US Open Television decision

While the action at The Country Club this Thursday lives up to the hype, the current US Open 2022 broadcast format does not.

The first part of the first round is broadcast in the United States. The back half of the first round will be available on NBC.

If fans are looking to stream the entire first round of the US Open without having to change channels, they can do so on Peacock.

However, it seems Peacock’s coverage of the US Open left more fans frustrated than happy.

“The peacock coverage of the US Open makes me not want to watch it,” one fan tweeted. “How does the PGA keep dropping the ball??? Covering all majors like masters is really simple.”

“Does anyone else have a really shitty Peacock streaming experience,” another fan wrote. “Watching the US Open? Super restless…I watch Peacock all the time but it’s my first time streaming anything and it’s just not good.”

“Wait, are there ads on the Peacock US Open coverage? I thought the whole point of paying a subscription was to avoid the ads,” said a third fan.

Unfortunately for golf fans who are frustrated with this format, it will stay that way for the second round as well.

Matthew NeSmith and Collin Morikawa are currently leading the standings at 3 under par.
