DIRECTV has offered 4K coverage of the event for the last eight years and a DIRECTV spokesman tells The TV Answer Man that this year will be no different. DIRECTV next week will provide 4K feeds of the ‘Amen Corner’ (holes 11th through 13th) as well as the 15th and 16th holes on each day of the four-day event.

The DIRECTV satellite service will also provide a high-def multi-screen view (the Mosaic) of the tournament which will show different holes and players at the same time.

ESPN and CBS will also provide high-def coverage of the live action on their channels while Peacock will stream an analysis show each day. See your on-screen guide for times.

David, hope that helps. Happy viewing and stay safe!
