Thanks to the PR for DirecTV for sending in the information about their “Open Experience” this week.  DTV has some very cool coverage over several channels which blows away regular single channel TV viewing of what may be the carnage at Chambers Bay.

From DirecTV:

Fans can watch the world’s best golfers take on the unforgiving Chambers Bay course at the 2015 U.S. Open on four different TV channels when they tune into DIRECTV’s U.S. Open Experience, beginning Thursday, June 18.  The four-screens-in-one HD mix channel and interactive app are part of DIRECTV’s expanded coverage of this year’s second major.

Each channel of the U.S. Open Mix (701 & 205) is in HD and fully produced with its own announcers, and will include:

  • The network feed from Fox Sports (702)
  • Featured Group (703): This Thursday’s groups are:  Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, Angel Cabrera, teeing off at 7:33 a.m. PT; and Tiger Woods, Rickie Fowler, Louis Oosthuizen at 2:28 p.m. PT.
  • Featured holes (704) are the 12th and 15th
  • U.S. Open 360 (705), an all-access look from the grounds of Chambers Bay – behind-the-scenes to action on the course.

Loading times for the interactive app will be even faster this year.  Users can select the red button to bring up a list of features alongside the broadcast video that include:

  • Player Scorecard
  • Contains key bio info, player headshots, scores and stats

New this year – Additional Stats

The top 10 players will have the following stats made available on their scorecard:
