Cord cutters can use ato watch the PGA Championship, but you’ll need to use a plan or a service that not only offers CBS and TNT, but also a live feed of CBS and not just on-demand content. In many markets, you can watch on-demand but not live content from CBS and the other local networks.

CBS All Access costs $6 a month and will let you watch the afternoon action of the PGA Championship on Saturday and Sunday. (CNET is a division of CBS.)
