The first press conference for US Open week at The Country Club is with Phil Mickelson, and here’s how you can watch him talk.
Although it would be ideal if the 122nd US Open was completely focused on the tournament at The Country Club in Brookline, one of the country’s most historic courses, that will not be the case. For better or worse, last week’s LIV Golf premiere is still in the spotlight, and for better or worse, it puts Phil Mickelson in the spotlight.
With the discoveries regarding his gambling debts, several exposures about his personal life, and his own comments about the PGA Tour and LIV Golf, he faces a lot of concerns. And, despite the efforts of reporters in London last week, there is still more to learn. So it’s only fitting that he’ll be the opening speaker at the US Open on Monday.
Mickelson will be probed about the Saudi-backed league, his personal difficulties, his missing US Open trophy from his résumé, and much more, making this must-see television for golf aficionados. As a result, we’ve got you covered in terms of how to view it.

The press conference will be broadcast on Golf Channel’s Live From the US Open on Monday, June 13 at 1 p.m. ET. If you have a cable or satellite package, this is the easiest way to watch TV.
For those who need to watch the press conference live, the NBC Sports website and app, where you can log in with a cable or satellite subscription to watch the Golf Channel feed, are good alternatives.
While further details are limited, it’s worth keeping an eye on the official US Open Twitter feed, as the organization frequently broadcasts press conferences on social media. The press conference may also be streamed on the USGA YouTube channel.
