The American Express (otherwise known as the Desert Classic) has wrapped up, with Jon Rahm winning his second tournament of the year after the Tournament of Champions, and now we look to the next match: the Farmers Insurance Open.

The FIO begins on January 25, running until the 28th, and its purse of $8,700,000 will make it tempting to players. That's the second-biggest pot of the year so far.

If you haven't already worked out where to watch the PGA Tour tournaments, it's worth organizing if you're a golf fan, because the tour's schedule contains 38 different events through 2023. That means there's plenty of golf to enjoy.

However, watching the near-weekly events can be a bit confusing as multiple networks and online streaming services provide live PGA Tour coverage. Well, that's where this article comes in — here's how to watch the PGA Tour online.

PGA Tour January 25-28: Farmers Insurance Open

The second California tournament of the 2023 PGA Tour, the Farmers Insurance Open on January 25-28 takes place at the South Course of the Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego.

Yes, that's a day earlier than most PGA Tour tournaments take place, and play has shifted in order to avoid the NFL Playoffs on Sunday 29, as those games dicate who will play in the Super Bowl 2023.

The purse here is $8,700,000, the second-biggest figure this year after the Tournament of Champions offered $15,000,000. 

The defending champion is Luke List, but he'll be going up against Jon Rahm (who has already won two tournaments this year) and Si Woo Kim (who has won one), as well as top golfers like Xander Schauffele, Will Zalatoris and Collin Morikawa.

How to watch PGA Tour 2023 in the US

It's hard to move in the US without bumping your foot on a streaming service that'll air the PGA Tour; that is to say, it's playing on various services.

Various championships are playing on TV channels: The Golf Channel handles week day coverage of most golf tournaments throughout the year, though ESPN offers Thursday and Friday coverage of The Masters and the PGA Championship. Weekend coverage for all tournaments are either on NBC or CBS (we'll let you know which are on which below).

If you have these channels through traditional TV services, then you can watch each tournament with ease. But if not, several live TV streaming services get The Golf Channel, ESPN, NBC and CBS in one easy package. FuboTV ($74.99 monthly) Hulu with Live TV ($69.99 monthly) and YouTube TV ($64.99 monthly) provide all three channels over the internet. Sling TV, meanwhile, carries the Golf Channel, ESPN and NBC through its various packages (starting at $39.99 monthly). 

A more affordable option is ESPN Plus, as the $9.99-per-month sports streaming service offers multiple streams of each tournament, with different feeds focusing on holes or golfers, making it a great pick if you don't need a whole live TV service.

CBS and NBC coverage of PGA Tour events are also going to be available to live stream on the networks' associated streaming services, Paramount Plus and Peacock.

How to watch PGA Tour 2023 in the UK

If you live in the UK, there's a simple one-stop shop for all your PGA Tour viewing, and that's going to be Sky Sports.

Various parts of PGA Tour tournaments air on the main Sky Sports channel, as well as Sky Sports Golf and Sky Sports Main Channel, but luckily all three of those are included in the same streaming package.

You can see Sky's bundles here (opens in new tab), but your cheapest option is getting Sky TV, Netflix, Sky Sports and a Sky Stream streaming dongle for £44 monthly, a contract which lasts 18 months.
