British Open 2015 viewing guide: Coverage schedule and how to watch live ... - SB Nation
After the FOX experiment of the U.S. Open, major championship golf returns to one of its traditional partners this week at St. Andrews.

This is not an easy watch and can weed out the undedicated souls those first two days.
There are many different methods to powering through and getting on "British Open time," but the one I've found most effective is grinding through the first round and just staying up all night. You'll hit a wall late on Thursday, but you will be nice and ready to crash early in the evening and then on pace for Friday and that rest of the weekend. Some alcoholic beverages of your choice might help the process at different points, but you must be careful. This seems to...Source: www.sbnation.com
