I was just reading that a new service will be offered for $4.99/month to have access to Thursday/Friday morning rounds.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – PGA TOUR fans will have access to Thursday and Friday tournament rounds for the first time ever beginning this week (July 30-31 from the Quicken Loans National) with the debut of the PGA TOUR’s first-ever, digital Over-The-Top subscription service. As announced in April, PGA TOUR LIVE, developed in partnership with MLB Advanced Media (MLBAM), will provide fans access to exclusive live coverage of two different marquee morning groups featuring the TOUR’s biggest stars each day during Thursday and Friday tournament rounds that have never been available live.

“PGA TOUR LIVE is a groundbreaking service for golf fans, enabling them to watch live Thursday and Friday early morning action as soon as competition begins,” said Rick Anderson, the PGA TOUR’s Executive Vice President for Global Media. “We’re confident that this exclusive coverage of marquee groups, alongside our Thursday and Friday Golf Channel telecasts, has strong potential to build fan interest and viewership for our traditional television coverage.”

PGA TOUR LIVE begins with seven tournaments through the remainder of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season and, moving forward, more than 30 PGA TOUR events per season. Initially available through a special seven-day free trial on iPhone, iPad and desktop/laptop platforms (at PGATOURLIVE.COM), fans will now be able to follow the game’s biggest names with full coverage from a dedicated broadcast team leading up to Golf Channel’s afternoon telecasts.

PGA TOUR LIVE debuts Thursday at 7:30 a.m. ET and will provide exclusive shot-by-shot coverage of the following groups on Thursday: 8:10 a.m., THE PLAYERS champion Rickie Fowler paired with Ben Crane and James Hahn, two of the players starring in the PGA TOUR LIVE ad campaign (see links below); 8:21 a.m., former Quicken Loans National champion and The Presidents Cup 2015 International Team vice-captain K.J. Choi from host country South Korea with International Team hopefuls Danny Lee of New Zealand and John Senden of Australia.

Friday’s 8:10 a.m. feature group includes three former Quicken Loans National champions: tournament host Tiger Woods, Bill Haas and Nick Watney. At 8:21 a.m., defending Quicken Loans National champion Justin Rose tees off with Jimmy Walker, No. 3 in the FedExCup points standings with two wins this season, and David Lingmerth of Sweden, who won his first PGA TOUR title last month at the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance

Probably not, it would turn every tournament into The Open for me and I just don't have time to watch 9 hours of golf a day for 4 days.... I make an exception for The Open every year and watch every second of Masters coverage, but not for the routine tourneys.
