There’s a strong lineup of big names set to grace the fairways of the Renaissance Club in North Berwick, Scotland, this weekend for the 2023 Genesis Scottish Open.

Out to defend his title will be Xander Schauffele, who triumphed last year after battling back from a nervy front nine on the final day to see off the challenge of compatriot Kurt Kitayama and South Korea’s Joo-hyung Kim.

Quick tips for streaming the Scottish Open using a VPN
- With four variables at play — your ISP, browser, video streaming provider and VPN — your experience and success when streaming the Scottish Open may vary.
- If you don’t see your desired location as a default option for ExpressVPN, try using the “search for city or country” option.
- If you’re having trouble getting the tournament after you’ve turned on your VPN and set it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log into your streaming service subscription account and make sure the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address on file with your account. Second, some smart TVs — like Roku — don’t have VPN apps you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you’ll have to install the VPN on your router or the mobile hotspot you’re using (like your phone) so that any device on its Wi-Fi network now appears in the correct viewing location.
- All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases with smart TV services, after you install a cable network’s sports app, you’ll be asked to verify a numeric code or click a link sent to your email address on file for your smart TV. This is where having a VPN on your router will also help, since both devices will appear to be in the correct location.
- And remember, browsers can often give away a location despite using a VPN, so be sure you’re using a privacy-first browser to log into your services. We normally recommend Brave.
