As with Canada, options to live stream the Genesis Open 2020 are limited in Australia. Once again, it's a case of snapping a GOLFTV pass or going without the PGA Tour golf this weekend.
Pricing is just as competitive as in the Great White North, too, so those Down Under can grab a GOLFTV subscription from $9.99 a month. The timings aren't bad, either, with final round action set to get really interesting from 7am AEDT on Monday, February 17. Breakfast and birdies is never a bad way to start the week, is it?

Genesis Open 2020 picks and field: Tiger vs Rory is just the start
The Genesis Open 2020 features nearly all of the world's top players. Normally, the $9.3m purse and impressive player line-up would be enough for golf fans to want to live stream the PGA Tour golf today. But this year, there's added intrigue - as we've said, the real talking point this year is Tiger Woods chasing a record 83rd PGA Tour win.
The sporting legend will start his bid at history playing in a group that includes the supremely talented Justin Thomas, who at just age 26 already has 12 PGA Tour victories to his name.
That's just a taste of the fierce competition Tiger faces in California, though. Nearly all golf's biggest names are out in force to make up a hugely impressive Genesis Open field, not least world number one Rory McIlroy and his fiercest rival - world no.2 Brooks Koepka. There's also the deft left-hand of fellow golfing icon Phil Mickleson to contend with, plus big-driving Dustin Johnson, Spain's mercurial Jon Rahm, Ryder Cup hero Franceso Molinari, and England's Justin Rose.
This all means it's near on impossible to pick a favorite for the competition. Outside of the obvious contenders, former Masters champion Jordan Spieth can't be discounted and can generally be found at very favorable odds. Japan's Hideki Matsuyama is another outsider to be considered.
You might sense by now that this is 2020's biggest PGA Tour golf tournament to date so you can bet we'll be watch it right alongside you today and all through the weekend. As a final reminder, one of our preferred options to access a legal and reliable Genesis Open live stream is by using a Virtual Private Network to access the broadcast you normally would at home.
