Will Tiger and Phil play?
At last year’s PGA Championship in South Carolina, Phil Mickelson became the game’s oldest Major winner at age 50. Mickelson has taken a leave of absence from golf, and announced recently that he will not defend his 2021 championship.
So, Phil is out. On the other hand, it appears we will get a chance to watch Tiger Woods as the 15 time Major championship winner has been spotted playing practice rounds at Southern Hills.

Live streaming the PGA Championship 2022: our top picks
Watch every round
fuboTV carries both CBS and ESPN in the base package which gives golf fans access to all 4 rounds of the 2022 PGA Championship using only one streaming service. The final rounds of the tournament will be broadcast on your local CBS affiliate. fuboTV is currently offering a 7 day free trial so you can watch the PGA Championship for free.
fuboTV is also our top pick for live streaming the 2022 NFL season.
First two rounds
ESPN+ will carry all the action from the first two rounds of the 2022 PGA Championship, and then offer morning coverage of the final rounds on Saturday and Sunday.
Paramount+, the streaming arm of CBS/Viacom, does not offer ESPN, so the platform isn’t a solution for May 19 and May 20.
However, just as they did for The Masters, CBS has the TV contract for the last two round of the 2022 PGA Championship, which are arguably the most important, so if your goal is weekend action only, Paramount+ offers a nice solution at a fair price.
Paramount+ also features the SEC Game of the Week during the college football season, and is the home of the NFL on CBS, which broadcasts primarily AFC matchups during the NFL regular season and playoffs.
