How to Watch PGA Tour: The Players Championship Online in the U.S.

This tournament, along with future PGA events, is airing on NBC’s Golf Channel. That means that your best bet for watching The Players Championship online is with Hulu + Live TV. This streaming bundle gets you more than 65 channels of TV shows, news, sports, and more, and new subscribers can start a one-week free trial with no obligation. After that, Hulu + Live TV rings in at $65 per month, or you can upgrade to Hulu + Live TV along with Disney+ and ESPN+ for just $7 more (which comes to $72 per month).

The Players Championship is one of the biggest tournaments in golf, typically featuring the top 50 professional players in the world rankings. Most notably, The Players Championship currently has the largest payout of any tournament in the PGA Tour with a whopping $15 million purse. The fattest purse used to be offered at the U.S. Open (which currently pays $12.5 million) before The Players Championship surpassed it last year. However, the 2020 tournament was unfortunately canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so this will be the first year that the $15 million purse is up for grabs.

The winner of The Players Championship in 2019 was Rory McIlroy (who took home $2,250,000 of the $12.5 million purse offered that year). McIlroy, who now sits at the 11th spot on the PGA Tour rankings, was the top-ranked player in the world for a 106-week run which started on March 12. He’ll be competing with other star players including current top-ranked golfer Dustin Johnson and third-ranked golfer Justin Thomas, among others.

If you want to watch The Players Championship live, now’s the time to sign up for sign up for Hulu + Live TV. This package includes the Golf Channel, making it one of the best ways to stream the PGA Tour for the remainder of the 2020-2021 season, which culminates in the Tour Championship in September.

Everything You Need to Know About UFC
when is the next ufc fight 260 miocic vs  ngannou

When it comes to the ancient art of hand-to-hand combat, it's always you against the other man -- or, in the case of a street fight, the other man and his crew. Maybe you're a trained boxer and the scales tip in your favor. Maybe he's a bouncer with 50 pounds on you and the odds slide the other way. The fact remains that when it comes to fighting -- one of the oldest and most primal acts of man -- there are few rules and no time-outs. At its most basic, this is the ethos on which the UFC was built.

Fighting styles have evolved in every culture. We associate martial arts with Asia, and wrestling with ancient Greece; the Scots, their claymores and kilts; and amateur boxing took shape in England. In the 20th century, this was settled in world wars and in drunken fistfights in World Cup host cities. But the genius of the Ultimate Fighting Championship is that it standardized a means of letting guys fight to find out which one and from where would be the best.

In the early days of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, there were no time limits. They weren't even considered necessary. Cage fighting, as it was called before the term "mixed martial arts" existed, was a quick and violent endeavor. The UFC's first official contest lasted a mere 23 seconds and ended with a guy getting kicked in the chops so hard that one of his teeth, freshly knocked from his mouth, nearly hit an announcer sitting ringside. All that changed after UFC 5 when, in a much-hyped rematch of UFC 1's final, Royce Gracie faced off against Ken Shamrock. What happened there would go down as a flashpoint moment in MMA history regarding its evolution into the sport we all know and love today.
