2016 Rio Olympics golf: How to watch live stream online, TV coverage, schedule

The field may not be stacked, but golf is back at the Olympic Games ... for the first time in 112 years.

Forget concerns about Zika, the wild (and cute) animals inhabiting the course and the big-name players that ditched the event for one reason or another: We're about to see something none of us have before in our lives -- three golfers win Olympic medals for representing their countries.


Whether the United States sweeps the medals (as our own Kyle Porter thinks is possible) or not, the Americans are some of the highest-ranked competitors and favorites in the event. Henrik Stenson, who won his first major at The Open Championship and has been playing great golf for the last month, is the overall favorite, of course.

The other good news? With NBC airing every moment of 2016 Rio Olympics action live either on television or online, you can watch more than eight hours of important golf each day despite all four majors being in the books this season.

With that, here's how to watch four days of golf from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
