The 2021 PGA Championship is right around the corner! From May 20 to May 23 some of the best golf pros in the world will descend on Kiawah Island off the coast of South Carolina in an attempt to dethrone defending champion Collin Morikawa. If you’re traveling or living abroad in the US, UK, Canada, or anywhere else, you can live stream the event through Kodi but you may need the help of a VPN to access your usual home services.
Live streaming access is available worldwide through a select number of sources, most of which require an account or subscription of some kind.
Important note: Our guide only mentions official sources for the PGA Championship.
This 4-day event will feature some of the world’s most popular golfers. Golf fans from around the world may be tuning in, and some websites may be offering illegitimate streaming options to glean some of the traffic. Unofficial streaming sites come with notable risks, including malware, adware, and phishing attempts. The PGA Championship will be readily available from official channels and Kodi addons, although ISP stream throttling will be a concern regardless of which source you use.
BEST VPN FOR KODI:IPVanish is our top choice. The service has a large network of fast, uncongested servers. IPVanish offers strong security, privacy, and anonymity features that make it bypass ISP speed throttling and snooping on any device, including the Amazon Fire TV Stick. Try it risk-free with the 7-day money-back guarantee.
Warning: Kodi should only be used for content to which you have the legal right to access. Neither the Kodi Foundation nor Comparitech advocates the use of Kodi for piracy.
How to watch the PGA Championship on Kodi with a VPN
You’ll only be able to watch the 2021 PGA Championship live in the US. Regardless of where you live, a VPN can help you watch most or all of the events. To get started with a VPN, follow the steps below.
Here’s how to live stream the Golf PGA Championship on Kodi:
- First, sign up to a trustworthy VPN provider. We recommend IPVanish for Kodi users, but you may also want to consider ExpressVPN, NordVPN, or Surfshark as well.
- Now, download the VPN app onto your preferred streaming device (if available). If no app is available for that VPN, consider another VPN option, or choose a different device
- Next, connect to a VPN server in the country where the PGA Championship streams are available. In this case, you’ll need to connect to a US VPN server.
- Open the Kodi add-on you want to use, find the streaming channel, and play!
You’ll want to make sure you test out your streaming options before the May 20 event starts. That way, you’ll ensure you have complete access and that you’ll have time to switch to a different VPN or Kodi addon, if necessary.
In the US, the 2021 PGA Championship broadcast rights are shared between ESPN and CBS. Some events will be available only on ESPN+, some on ESPN, and some on CBS Sports. There is currently no Kodi addon for ESPN+ or CBS Sports. However, you can access every event available through ESPN by using the Sling TV Kodi addon.

If you’re in the US or have access to a US payment method and a VPN, Sling TV is a great option for Kodi. And in fact, it’s currently the only streaming service from any country that’s broadcasting the PGA Championship legally on Kodi. The addon pulls streams directly from a Sling TV account.
For evens on ESPN+, you’ll need a separate account for that service. Any VPN you use for Sling TV on Kodi should also work for ESPN+. And if you want PGA Championship events that are broadcasting on CBS Sports, try fuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, or YouTube TV.
