What channel is the Ryder Cup on today? TV coverage, live streams to watch Day 1 in USA

By | September 23, 2021

The Ryder Cup is back after being postponed from last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Team Europe looks to defend its 2018 title against Team USA. With the home course advantage at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, Team USA is hoping to capture their third victory in the last 20 years. 

Team USA brings six rookies to its team this year out of the 12-man roster, including British Open champion Collin Morikawa and FedEx Cup winner Patrick Cantlay. They also bring back veterans Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas.

Quite a few Team Europe members have yet to win a PGA Tour title either ever or in recent years. But with strong players such as Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy and Viktor Hovland, they have a good chance of becoming back-to-back winners.

Here is a complete guide to watching the 2021 Ryder Cup, including the start time and TV channels for each round.
