Renewed without prior notice 3/5
Actually, I like watching the tournaments live. However, it would be nice to be able to choose the groups that you can watch. What I don't like is that this was automatically renewed without getting an email at least a week ahead so I could decide if I wanted to continue with it. I don't watch it all the time so I'm not sure I'm getting my money's worth.
Awful app , only covers 3 holes 1/5
So disappointed , and cancelled after I tried it. They only broadcast 3 holes. Doesn’t matter who is leading or what is happening they only broadcast holes 15,16,17,18. PGA either do it right or don’t do it. Deftly feel ripped off.
Review of IPhone pga live streaming 1/5
By Beast Mode Ma'ma
Totally unsatisfactory, very disappointing coverage. Not good coverage, not what’s expected of live coverage in a major tournament. I’ll cancel before renewal date. A minus star rating on iPhone while traveling.
Coverage is TRASH! 1/5
No one wants to watch hole numbers! We ALL want to watch Tiger and the leaders. I will not subscribe again next year.
I loaded this app, it downloaded about 99% and then stuck there. Nevertheless, I was able to open the app, even though the App Store shows it is still loading. In the app, I select leaderboard, the leaderboard box comes up but it is blank - no players and scores. Finally, I paid to watch the PGA Tour live - which I got but the coverage didn’t include Tiger, who was leading at the time, or any of the front runners. Worthless, garbage app.
App Store not working... 1/5
I have tried multiple times to pay for this app. It will not let me do to it saying that App Store not available.
Not all rounds have replay 2/5
Not all rounds have replay and users won’t know until trying to view replay. Specifically, 2018 Tour Championship round 3 is not available for replay
Not worth paying for 1/5
By Sad golf fan
Why would I pay to watch people talk about golf? Don’t care about the pregame show. Give me an app where I can watch golf. Just golf.
Error on iPad 1/5
IPhone works great. IPad keeps getting error. Had to pay for airplane WiFi twice. Not a good look guys.....
dont waste time/money 1/5
a joke of an app, very little content, for todays toyr champ. they list 10-1 coverage, but nobody tees off before 12 noon, .. you cant even get tee times in the app, sparse video highlights, totally disappointed
Not worth the money 1/5
This is the third time I’ve paid for this app! I’ve been traveling so I don’t have cable to get the golf channel. By featuring holes and not players they’ve screwed the pooch! Wish I could get my money back what a rip off! I really wanted to see the first two rounds of the Tour Championship! 🙁
Poor Coverage 1/5
By Bray Dixon
I don’t really understand how you can make people pay for an app specifically for golf coverage, yet don’t cover golf. It’s frustrating to turn the app on in a hurry to watch your favorite players only to come to a commercial or see a leaderboard or even worse just watching the announcers talk. Nobody cares about the announcers we can HEAR THEM. Nobody cares about any other tidbits that don’t have to do with actual golf. This app needs to be redone or the coverage needs to change. Please fix this.
Show us tiger as much as possible 3/5
That’s why I bought it. People want to watch tiger survey his shots. Featured holes should be 2nd to tiger.
Poor coverage 2/5
Let me be honest here. I really only watch Tiger. I think the other players are fantastic, but I just love watching Tiger. Today, I wanted to watch him as the BMW was rain delayed yesterday, but yet again, no coverage.
There’s only coverage of tourneys in the am and on Thursday and Friday. What am I paying for here? How is it that the PGA’s own app doesn’t offer complete coverage?
Also, I wish there was a way to see each players complete scorecard as we watch play, not just for the featured players. As well, the scores of players are not updated in real time. Sometimes it takes a few minutes. Something that simple is not difficult to correct.
Would be nice to update app so I can watch round 4 of the bmw championship
Lack of coverage 2/5
Rounds 1 and 2 you are shown coverage of three or four featured golfers of their choosing, which has been okay by me since they've always included Tiger and he's why I watch; however, on Rounds 3 and 4, you are only shown two or three featured holes for the entire day's tournament and I literally can't stand it. For that main reason, I am unhappy, do not feel the monthly subscription is worth it or lives up to its' promise, and will be choosing to end my subscription.
Been a real disappointment 2/5
By Woody Mourning
I love this app when I can go back and rewatch the early rounds and I am like so many other Americans who realized that cable is a joke. I don’t know if the cable companies are trying to force us to get cable or miss out on watching golf. This app seemed to be a great alternative to wasting money on useless cable; however, If this app was setup like the NFL app so you could rewatch all four rounds it would be worth it. For one, the featured hole coverage only on the weekends is a joke when you pay for this service. For two, If Tiger tees off early on Thursday or Friday then you usually get to see his whole round; if Tiger tees off at noon (which he always does following an early tee time) you miss his whole round. Lastly, the broadcasters are boring and the camera crew are usually making you nauseous. They have so much potential here to make this a great service for us cable cutters. It has been a disappointing experience seeing that potential withering away.
NO GOOD 1/5
By Arizona Golf Fan
Does not work as advertised ! You can only watch featured groups wont let you stream to wifi TV whos going to watch golf for 5 hours on a 3 inch phone. Dont use free trial they will (CHARGE YOUR CC) at the first of the month even if your trial started on the 30th of the month stay away.
Unable to watch 1/5
Purchased this app, couldn’t sign in, tried to reset password, but never received the email. Ridiculous waste of money! Extremely frustrating!
Don’t buy it. Seriously. 1/5
This application is horrible. You pay and it only shows you featured holes like the 14th and 17th. They show you a featured group but only for the first 9 holes, then they cut it off.
So really the main benefit is to watch highlight videos.
Which you can see for free on YouTube.
Complete ripoff. I want my money back.
Separate subscription needed 1/5
By Irken Skoodge
It’s not enough that I pay for golf channel I’m supposed to pay more to get early round coverage is ridiculous
Ended my subscription 1/5
I think this is the only streaming app that is not smart TV compatible. What’s the point of watching the match on your phone? Please fix this and I’ll resubscribe.
Why am I paying to see an ad every 5 minutes... 3/5
The service itself is decent, coverage could be better and continuous but for the most part they show the right moments. It’s just annoying that it seems like every 5 minutes there’s a commercial or everytime you minimize the app for a second to reply to a message and you click back you have to watch an ad. I just don’t get why we pay for it if you can’t dial the ads back. I’m okay with an ad here or there but everytime.. comeon.
What am I paying for 1/5
Even with a $40 subscription you’re forced to watch ads. Also no access to any USGA tournaments and for PGA tourneys half of the coverage is of the driving range while actual golf is being played. What am I paying for?
Can’t believe they charge for this
Piss poor for the $40 1/5
Look I purchased this add to watch golf because of TV time restrictions. This app has featured groups instead which are piss poor players that week. I believe that CBS, Golf Channel, Fox are highlighting the early events so let’s have this app just like that. I could handle advertising breaks. But show all highlights not just 3 good lifers and there not even on leaderboard page 1-3!
Wouldn’t recommend this to my enemy!
PGA app 1/5
Get this off my iPad 1/5
By Very annoyed with ads
Just bought the app to try for a month. After I opened the app, the message that appears is that video is not available in my area. How in the #$%& do I get this off my iPad and get my money back?
Poor Updating 1/5
I do enjoy the app. However, they do a poor job of streaming and updating to the current time.
Lack of coverage 2/5
On Thursday and Friday, coverage starts fairly early. The main problem for me is on Saturday and Sunday. There is hardly any coverage. Many times tv coverage starts before the apps coverage does. What’s the point of having this app? Also, this app in my opinion should show all day, not force you to change to golf channel to watch the remainder. One last issue is the commercials. There are only a few, but for $40 there should not be any. I won’t renew the app next year. Not worth $40 for lack of content given.
Coverage of Tournaments is Terrible 1/5
I would pay any amount of money to be able to watch full tournaments, especially on the weekends. Not sure why I am paying for coverage that I can get on CBS and the Golf Channel. Coverage is good when tournaments are being covered, it’s just that they rarely get the coverage correct. This app is comparable to NFL Sunday Ticket, except rather than being able to watch the full game on Sunday, you only get the fourth quarter or the Browns vs. the Jets 1:00 game when it was already being played on Fox. Undoubtedly cancelling my subscription next after the Tour Championship. I paid money to watch golf live, not watch replays of TV coverage.
Where’s the coverage? 1/5
By President Holden
I purchased this app to watch a tournament because it’s not on a channel until the 3rd round. I try to click on the live video to watch and it says, “This video is not available in your region.” What do you mean it’s not available?! I’m paying for the app for that purpose! Cancelling.
Let's watch Golf 3/5
I like the service. For me and for this level of service the price is right. My current complaint are camera shots on the ball from fairway to green, I have a 48" screen and from 14', It's to easy to lose the ball in a wide angle shot. Some camera guys are a little better than others. Thanks, good job.
Live golf...not really 2/5
I figured I would download the app after the golf channel announcer hyped it up. Turns out live golf is the same live golf being aired on the Golf channel. To view actual life golf as it unfolds requires a paid subscription.
An error has occurred, try again later 1/5
Got this in hoped to watch all the coverage. Every time I went into the app to start watching I kept getting the “error has occurred” message. Worthless
Misleading ... Can’t watch tour 1/5
You CANNOT watch the tour live with this app ... it does not cover Saturday nor Sunday play. The app is worthless to me.
Unacceptable delay in scores 3/5
By Highland Fox
This app lags, at best, two holes behind live action and sometimes three or more holes behind. Why the delay??? What’s the point when this app is buried in ads???
Don’t waste your money 1/5
You pay for the app for live feed, but there is NO feed!
Limited coverage 2/5
In some cases, the coverage of the live events is great, especially with simulcast. However don’t expect to see quality programming on all events. Disappointed that pga live does not have a feed for the PGA Championship! You have to be joking. So mad that I canceled my membership
Absolute trash. Terrible coverage. Heck doesn’t even have anything for its own Pga Championship. I’d give a negative 5 star if I can. Also makes it very hard to cancel subscription.
Perfectly happy 5/5
By Darmok N. Jalad
Nothing to complain about here. Been a subscriber for for 2 years and I rarely have a problem. Unlike other reviewers, I don’t need you to show everything Tiger Woods does (that’s called the Golf Channel). I actually enjoy watching the other members of the Tour. I wish you could get the weekend simulcast with TGC, but thankfully at least CBS doesn’t expect you to have their app and cable package to stream something you can pick up OTA with some rabbit ears. Keep up the good work, and I even like your broadcast crew.
Poor tournament coverage and incessant talk... 1/5
So now I see to watch early coverage of some days, you are required to have a facebook account and view on something called “Facebook Watch”. You get the PGA app, pay a subscription and they don’t even show the all the coverage on their app.
If I could give this zero stars I would. I’ve already cancelled my auto renewal subscription so I won’t be changed again. But I’ve wasted $40 on this terrible app subscription. Not even close to worth it.
- - - - - - - -
The App itself is just fine. But the point of the app is the access to live streaming of selected player groups. Unfortunately coverage is spotty the commentators are mixed bag.
You’d expect that every day of the tournament they show the featured morning group before the network coverage starts. But they don’t. They only seem to do that on Thurs/Fri. On the weekend they show some stuff, but it’s mixed bag and no usually the best players playing that morning.
As for the announcers, some are fine but others are incredibly annoying. And as a group they subscribe to the premise that we are tuning in to listen to them talk and not watch a golf match. And boy do they talk and talk and talk. Some are so bad I end up turning off the sound and just watch the images. But that’s not what you’re paying for.
It’s too bad the PGA doesn’t offer a video feed with the sounds of the course (players talking, striking the ball, crowd cheers, etc. WITHOUT the commentary). If they did you could use the app that way and avoid the poor commentary and annoying voices of some announcers.
If you think this might be an issue for you, I’d recommend selecting the one month subscription to try it out and then renew for a full year if you like the announcers. Unfortunately I signed up for the yearly subscription since it seems like a better value. But that’s $40 down the drain. I’ve already cancelled the auto renewal and will watch for the next 11 months with the sound usually off. Too bad, a nice idea poorly executed by the PGA.
Featured hole coverage is not worth paying 1/5
I want to watch the big names, that’s what brings me in. I don’t care to see every golfer play holes 15, 16, 17. I want to see Tiger, Jason, Rory, Phil, etc. etc. play their whole rounds. Instead, what you’re left with is segmented coverage of 60+ people I don’t care to watch. NOT WORTH PAYING FOR A SUBSCRIPTION!!!
Don’t buy it. I’ve had it for a month and can’t even watch the freaking golf tournament. It’s unbelievable how you pay for something and the live feed doesn’t work and then you call to talk to someone and are on hold for 25 minutes and have to hang up and give up. I can’t even sign into my account it says invalid credentials like what the F is that. Worthless, absolutely the most frustrating app I’ve ever bought in my entire life. Go kick rocks PGA tour live you scam artist
Gary Bishop 5/5
I want to unsubscribe to PGA Tour Live MOMZDYHXL6 today Gary Bishop
Too expensive for poor quality 2/5
I bought this app to watch/follow The Tour more closely. The app is still not formatted for iPhone X and I can’t watch the events I want to when I am away. I understand other stations have coverage contracts but, for the price paid, you can’t even watch a hefty portion of Live events. On top of that, the updates are less than par. I get better coverage on Twitter. Pretty disappointed in this “investment”.
It doesn’t cover The Open? 2/5
It’s one of the biggest events of the year and this year there’s an amazing leaderboard but still no coverage?
Poor coverage 2/5
Doesn’t have anything remotely resembling “extensive” coverage.
Forget European coverage.
Too many commercials or breaks for a pay service.
Very disappointed in it and I cancelled.
Coverage Is Poor 2/5
I paid for this app because I was tired of switching back and forth through multiple apps to watch a tournament. The morning after I bought it (Saturday), I excitedly got up and tried to turn the tournament on...except there was no feed. Frustrated, I gave up and just ended up playing on Facebook. That’s when I came across a live feed of the tournament from PGA Tour. So the people that paid $40 for the app couldn’t use their app to watch, but anyone could watch it on Facebook for free and have to try to stream it to their TV with a wonky Facebook interface. That’s my main complaint, but I do have another issue. They force you to watch a commercial when you start your stream. Very annoying for a service you pay for, but I can get over one commercial. Then coverage kicks in, but then there are spots where commercials would be on normal tv and they just show a shot of trees with the leaderboard in front of it. There’s a hundred people playing golf and they go to nothing for five minutes at a time constantly. I’m cancelling.
What Am I Paying For??? 1/5
Bought my subscription only to find out that the Tour gave Facebook the streaming rights for pre- 1 o’clock times...which was the whole reason I bought the app to begin with...so now what I’m paying for is completely free for everyone. So basically it’s a pointless purchase for a premium service
