The 2009 US Open Golf Championship has made it to the weekend, despite rain hitting Long Island, making play difficult on the already treacherous Bethpage Black course at Bethpage State Park in New York. If you’re not watching the US Open live on NBC, there are several online resources for keeping up with scores and seeing who’s on top of the leaderboard.

There’s three major sports websites providing great coverage for this weekend’s 2009 U.S. Open championship in Long Island. The first is the official site of the 2009 U.S. Open (usopen.com/en_US/). They are running a leaderboard along the right side of the screen (currently I see Ricky Barnes is playing hole 10 and in the lead). There is also lots of NBC highlights from the tour on the U.S. Open site as well.

Yahoo Sports (sports.yahoo.com/golf/pga/leaderboard) has a clean and easy to view live leaderboard for the PGA tour as well. The Yahoo Sports leaderboard page auto refreshes and it’s probably one of the best bets for viewing leaderboard stats from mobile devices or netbooks. On the leaderboard page, check the previous tournaments drop down box for stats on other championships and golf classics.

ESPN is running a leaderboard across the top of the site (espn.go.com/) and there’s also to live links available on the page. ESPN is live blogging and tweeting from Bethpage Black, check the blinking live icon on the site for a link. ESPN also has a live Pop Up video so you can watch the tournament online. Live streaming quality is spectacular. It opens in a new browser window so instead of linking to it from here, go to the ESPN homepage, and click on Watch Tiger Woods live. ESPN has the best source of Bethpage Black live streaming video I’ve seen yet.

NBC Sports also has live online coverage for the 2009 U.S. Open (ns/sports-us_open_2009/). Click on the main page and look for the bar across the top that reads “Watch live online: Full-day coverage of the 17th hole at the U.S. Open” to open a pop-up browser featuring live video coverage and related highlights.

ESPN had live TV coverage before the weekend, with today and tomorrow’s play being broadcast live by NBC television as well. For more live blogging and coverage for this weekend’s Bethpage Black event, check out golf.com (golf.com/golf/). They’re running a leaderboard and have a nice clean television schedule available as well.

For chiropractic and Tiger Woods fans, check out our British Open story, or the chiropractic and Bob Gilder story, and even the Doug Tewell story. Many chiropractors love golf and taking care of the pros, I believe the feeling is mutual.
