The Open contines at St Andrews today, and round 2 of the final major of the 2022 golf season is shaping up to be a cracker. Tiger Woods has struggled yesterday, finishing 6 over, but Rory McIlroy soared straight to the top of the leaderboard. Reigning champion Collin Morikawa birdied the 18th to finish even. Here's how to watch The Open 2022, online and on TV, from wherever you are in the world.

The Old Course is full of storylines this year. There will certainly be eyes on Rory McIlroy who enters this year's tournament as the favourite. The Northern Irishman has described winning the Open Championship at St Andrews as the "Holy Grail", and arrives in Scotland as the world number two, having won twice on the PGA Tour this term.

Tiger Woods has won the Open Championship three times, with two of those victories coming on this course, with the 46-year-old regarding St Andrews as his "favourite course in the world".

Should this weekend's event prove to be his swan song, few golf enthusiasts would disagree he would make a fitting winner for what is an historic 150th instalment of the battle for the Claret Jug. Of course, the likes of Scottie Scheffler, Xander Schauffele, Tyrrell Hatton and Matt Fitzpatrick might have something to say about that.

Watch the The Open 2022 live stream from abroad with a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant The Open 2022 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 (opens in new tab) 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.
