What channel is the US Open on today? TV coverage, live streams for Thursday's Round 1

It’s a little later than normal, but golf’s second major of the year has arrived with the 2020 U.S. Open.

Originally the third major and scheduled for June 18-21, the U.S. Open begins play this weekend at Winged Foot Golf Club in New York.

While spectators won’t be able to attend this year’s event, there will be plenty of television coverage thanks to NBC, Golf Channel and Peacock.

The favorite entering the US Open is Dustin Johnson who is fresh off winning the FedEx Cup and has finished in the top two in each of the last four tournaments he participated in. Johnson has one major win already on his resume, winning the 2016 US Open at Oakmont Country Club.

A full breakdown of TV and live streaming schedules for every round of the U.S. Open is below.
