After a controversial week in golf, the best players get together at the Country Club in Brookline, MA, for the third men’s major event of the season starting Thursday, June 16 through Sunday, June 19. This is the third time the club has held the USGA’s flagship championship and first time since 1988.

Rory Mcllroy, who just spoke to the media today, is ready to face Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Bryson DeChambeau, who are among 12 players who participated at the LIV Golf tournament last week outside London.

Tiger Woods has prioritized his health by choosing not to participate at the event and giving himself time to heal his right leg in time for the British Open at St. Andrews. Mickelson, who was out for four months before playing at the Saudi-backed LIV Golf event last week, is playing for the first time on U.S. soil since late January.

Here’s how to catch all the action from Massachusetts:
