How to stream the U.S. Open using the USGA U.S. Open, Fox Sports Go app & Google Chomecast

While Fox's television coverage of the U.S. Open doesn't begin until 11 a.m. ET on Thursday and Friday, the Fox Sports Go and USGA U.S. Open apps has three extra channels of excellent action from Erin Hills Golf Course that starts as early as 8:30 a.m. The problem? The screen on your phone or computer isn't quite as big as your beautiful flat-screen TV.

Enter Chromecast.

If you have Google's beautifully simple $35 dongle already set up on a bigger screen, then watching the 2017 U.S. Open on your TV using the USGA U.S. Open app, or the Fox Sports Go app is a breeze.

You can do this from your Android device with a Chromecast:

  1. Turn on your Google Chromecast and make sure it's connected to your phone.
  2. On your Android device, download, install and open the Google Cast app.
  3. At the top of the screen, hit the hamburger/3-bar menu in the search box.
  4. From the menu that flies in from the left, select Cast Screen/Audio.
  5. On the screen that loads, hit Cast Screen/Audio, confirm the Chromecast you're sending to, then exit the app.
  6. Fire up the Masters app, open up a stream and enjoy!

If you're doing this from your desktop or another computer:

  1. Install Google Chrome if you don't already have it.
  2. Go to the Google Chrome Web Store and install the Google Cast extension. It'll create a Chromecast button to the right of the address bar in any tab you open.Google-Cast
  3. Go to and launch the video player to open the streaming channels. Pick the one you want to watch.
  4. Click the Chromcast button on that tab and connect to the dongle in your TV or larger monitor.Google-Cast-box
  5. Click the full-screen button in the streaming player to have the biggest view of the action possible on your computer.Masters-full-screen
