It's looking more and more like a blue day, as the 2018 Ryder Cup reaches its exciting finale. There's no doubt now that it's Europe's contest to lose, but stranger things have happened in sport and the USA are praying for a miracle. It's time for the Day 3 singles and we'll tell you how to live stream the Ryder Cup conclusion no matter where you are - it's even FREE to live stream if you're in the US.
2018 Ryder Cup - where and when
The Ryder Cup is back on mainland Europe, with Le Golf National in the suburbs of Paris hosting this year's event. It's the first French Ryder Cup in history.
The tournament runs from tomorrow (Friday, September 28) to Sunday, September 30. Team USA tees off first at 8.10am local time Friday, which is 7.10am BST, 2.10am ET and 11.10pm Thursday PT.
It's surely Europe's for the taking? Four points up going into the Sunday of a Ryder Cup certainly suggests that, but the US team will inevitably have been watching videos of Brookline and Medinah on repeat for inspiration for an unlikely turn around. Check out all of Sunday's match-ups below.
Sunday sees every player of each team play in singles matchplay golf. That means there are 12 points in total to play for - more than enough for the USA to overturn the deficit. Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy go out first at 12.05am local time (11.05am BST, 6.05am ET, 3.05am PT), with Bryson DeChambeau vs Alex Noren finishing things off. Leading the European troops at Le Golf National is Thomas Bjørn, desperate to wrestle back the Ryder Cup. But opposition captain Kim Furyk has no shortage of talent at his disposal to stop him.
Find out who will come out on top in 2018 by following the instructions below and tuning into a 2018 Ryder Cup live stream from wherever you find yourself in the world without paying a penny.

Live stream the Ryder Cup Day 3 from anywhere
Live stream the Ryder Cup 2018 with a VPN
If there's no Ryder Cup coverage in your country and you discover that the free RyderCup.com live stream is blocked where you are, then you'll have to use a VPN. So even if the golf isn't being shown in your corner of the world, you can tune in to a country where it is. A VPN is perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location. We've tested hundreds of VPNs and can recommend these as the best three VPNs currently available:
1. Express VPN (comes with a 30 day money back guarantee)
This is the #1 rated best VPN in the world right now. You can watch on many devices at once including Smart TVs, Fire TV Stick, PC, Mac, iPhone, Android phone, iPads, tablets etc. Check out Express VPN
2. IPVanish supports up to 10 devices, so great on the go
3. VyprVPN: blazing speeds make VyprVPN a great choice for 4K video
Where can I stream golf live with a VPN?

So that obviously includes all the countries from which the players come from, so: UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Japan, South Korea, China, India, Taiwan, South Africa, Thailand, Germany, Italy, France, Denmark, Sweden, Norway Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico and Venezuela.
How to watch the 2018 Ryder Cup: UK stream
If you're a UK-based golf fan, you'll be well used to this by now. Sky Sports once again has all the live coverage of the Ryder Cup, with daily highlights available to watch on the BBC. Head straight to the Sky Sports Golf channel for that first tee-off time of 7.10am BST on Friday, and if you're not going to be at home much this weekend, you can download the Sky Go app on your tablet or smartphone to keep track of the action.
Don't have Sky and not keen on subscribing just for the golf? Well NOW TV may well be the answer. Watch the full three days of action with a £12.99 Sky Sports Week Pass, choose a day to watch with a £7.99 Day Pass, or make the most of a Month Pass at £16.99 to get all the build-up and post-tournament analysis too.
Away from the UK this weekend? That's where using a VPN means you can watch online through a laptop, mobile or streaming device as if you were sitting at home.
Alternative ways to watch Ryder Cup golf in the US
There are number of options for watching the 2018 Ryder Cup golf if you're stateside:
- That live stream at RyderCup.com is the obvious way. Although you'll be limited to what the website wants to show you and we doubt the coverage will have the sheen and depth of most dedicated broadcasters.
- If you're at home and have cable, then NBC is the official broadcaster. The network will be splitting coverage between its main sports channels and it's specialist station, the Golf Channel, which is available from most cable providers. NBC has promised 220 hours of coverage to get right under the Ryder Cup bonnet this year.
- If you're outside the US this weekend but want to access one of the above options, then you can use a VPN service to effectively transport your computer, phone or tablet's IP back to a US location.
