The 2014 Honda Classic has turned into the reemergence of Rory McIlroy after the once top-ranked golfer in the world struggled for a period while he adjusted to his Nike golf clubs. McIlroy starts late and Tiger Woods early when we watch Honda Classic online free live streaming of round 3 over the web or on TV today.
The golf world has always viewed the Honda Classic as one of the better tournaments in the early part of the season where the world’s best golfers battle into the last day. That hasn’t been the case this year through Friday as Tiger Woods narrowly made the cut following a terrible start on Thursday, and notables Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson have already been eliminated and force to watch from the sidelines.
Though Woods made the cut on Friday for a chance to play this weekend, he stands a full 11 shots off the lead, currently held by Rory McIlroy. It would take numerous players at the top of the leaderboard to struggle and Woods to play the best golf of his life in order for him to have a chance at winning. Stranger things have happened, but Woods fans shouldn’t enter today holding their breath.
Another notable big name, Adam Scott, enters today’s play a full eight shots back of McIlroy. Because Woods and Scott are so far behind, they are playing early today before TV coverage gets underway later today on NBC. The only way to catch these guys on the course will be to watch 2014 Honda Classic live online streaming, at least for a select number of holes that are available to stream.
As of the time of this article, the leaderboard shows McIlroy has a one-shot lead over Brendon de Jonge and a three-shot lead over Russell Henley. If McIlroy manages to play this weekend like he has the past two days, many feel he has the Honda Classic title already wrapped up and will coast to victory. McIlroy could certainly use a win to get back on track and live up to the lofty expectations placed upon him.
Honda Classic round three coverage starts on television today at 1pm EST / 10pm PST on Golf Channel in HD where available. Golf Channel coverage will run approximately two hours until 3pm EST, at which time TV coverage will switch to NBC from 3-6pm EST. In addition, Golf Channel is offering Bear Trap coverage of holes 15, 16 and 17 from 3-5pm EST that will jump between holes depending on who is playing them.
Rory McIlroy tees off at 1:35pm EST today so his entire round of 18 holes at the Honda Classic 2014 will be viewable on TV.
Online streams of Honda Classic are already underway with looks at holes 3, 15 and 18 available to watch online at PGATour.com by visiting their official website here. This is the only way to watch Tiger Woods at the Honda Classic today as his round 3 play will conclude before TV coverage begins.
Additionally, Golf Channel and NBC are offering their combined LiveExtra simulcast stream of the 2014 Honda Classic that will mirror the TV coverage.
