Michelle Clancy | 25-09-2012
The PGA and Turner Sports will wrap in online live TV coverage for the Ryder Cup matches via the Rydercup.com website.
Online coverage will start Friday and Saturday at 8:30 a.m., and continue until play concludes. Sunday, online coverage of the singles matches starts at noon. The matches are taking place at Medinah Country Club just outside Chicago.
The online broadcast will supplement the TV coverage, which runs 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. (Eastern) on ESPN on Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on NBC Saturday, and noon to 6 p.m. on NBC Sunday.
On the mobile app side, apps will be available for iPhones and iPads, but no Android. Though Turner reps claim the mobile website will work just as well as the iPhone app.
There will also be social networking perks. Rydercup.com will host a Tweet Battle between Team U.S.A. and Team Europe, with a Social Scoreboard.
