martin kaymer us open golf U.S. Open golf 2011 TV coverage schedule, online streamingESPN and NBC are sharing coverage of the 2011 U.S. Open golf tournament in order to bring golf fans as much coverage as possible.

For Thursday and Friday’s coverage of the second major golf tournament of the season, ESPN will have coverage from 10 a.m. ET to 3 p.m. ET. NBC will take over for two hours, from 3 p.m. ET to 5 p.m. ET, and then it kicks back to ESPN for the last hour of coverage, from 5 p.m. ET to 6 p.m. ET. Which is weird, but there you go.

For the weekend, NBC’s live coverage starts at 2 p.m. ET and continues until 8 p.m. ET on Saturday and starts a half-hour earlier on Sunday, airing from 1:30 p.m. ET until whenever the tournament ends. There is no live TV coverage prior to those afternoon starts on the Peacock.

But if you’d like to watch when there isn’t coverage (or you’re stuck at work in front of a computer and can’t watch on TV), there is live streaming on ESPN3. Who’s your pick to win it all? We always like to give a root to our hometown boy Zach Johnson.
