2021 Palmetto Championship: Live stream, TV schedule, golf coverage, watch online, channel

The Palmetto Championship at Congaree, which began Thursday, is the final stop on the PGA Tour before the big one next week with the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, but there are still plenty of intriguing stories to follow this week at Congaree in Ridgeland, South Carolina.

The first is the course, one we have never seen before on the PGA Tour and did not exist until a few years ago. This event is a replacement for the canceled RBC Canadian Open, which is why the golf course is such a one-off, but it’s still a terrific-looking track that actually looks fairly different compared to a traditional PGA Tour course.

With sandy waste areas and difficult-looking greens, there’s some ambiguity about how the course is going to play for the best players in the world. Well, two of the best players in the world. The only golfers in the top 10 in the Official World Golf Rankings who will tee it up this week are Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka. Both are of note, though, because both are among the top favorites next week and neither have played since the PGA Championship in May.

After Round 1, Wes Roach leads at 6-under 65, a stroke better than four players including South Carolina native Dustin Johnson tied for second.  

So either we get a big dog winning yet another tournament or perhaps an out-of-nowhere winner that delights patrons this weekend at Palmetto. Either way, the golf course should provide a good challenge for pros, and this should be a perfect follow-up to last week’s wild Memorial and next week’s monumental U.S. Open.
