If the 121st US Open Championship is anything like as good as 2008, when Tiger Woods beat Rocco Mediate on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to win his third US Open and 14th major title, we're in for a treat.

Jon Rahm, who was forced to withdraw from the Memorial Tournament after being told on live TV that he had Covid-19, has been given the all clear. Bryson DeChambeau, who opened up a six-shot lead to win his first major at last year's US Open, has struggled to peak at major championships. The American pro is also feuding with Brooks Koepka, and the two have been kept apart in the opening two rounds of the US Open. 

"I think it's fun," said DeChambeau. "There's a point where it's great banter. I personally love it. I think that, as time goes on, I hope on the weekend we can play against each other and compete. I think it would be fun and would be great for the game."

Six-time US Open runner-up Phil Mickleson, who became the oldest major winner at the age of 50 when he won last month's US PGA Championship, is certainly on form. Can the left-hander complete the Grand Slam and round out his glittering career? 

And let's not forget Rory McIlory. The Northern Ireland pro and 2011 US Open champ, will tee off alongside 2013 champion Justin Rose and world number one Dustin Johnson at 9.36pm BST on Thursday 17th June.

Follow the steps below to watch a 2021 US Open live stream from wherever you are.

Watch the 2021 US Open from anywhere using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant 2021 US Open rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are lots of VPN providers but some are more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days
