All eyes will be on Tiger Woods as he makes his major-championship return at Royal Liverpool in the Open Championship. ESPN is placating that audience with an online channel dedicated to following him in the year’s third major.
ESPN has announced it will air a Tiger Woods-only channel on its WatchESPN service during the rounds Woods plays next week in England.
Trey Wingo will host the channel, and he will be joined by former world No. 1 David Duval and the effervescent Tom Weiskopf on commentary.
Woods has missed the first two major championships of the year, skipping the Masters and U.S. Open to recuperate and rehabilitate after a March 31 microdiscectomy. Woods returned two weeks ago at the Quicken Loans National in suburban Maryland, missing the cut at Congressional C.C. after posting a 7-over total for two rounds.
If Woods doesn’t see the weekend at the Open Championship either, the ESPN3 feed will focus on other players.
