change it.

With the number of people that have tablets and phablets, wouldn’t it be nice of the USGA made a tablet friendly app? Landscape, guys. Full screen. C’mon.

Horrible app. Picture stinks not clear.
Didn’t work at all
JW-LXIIIX on 6/18/2018
I went to Mexico on vacation and I was counting on the app to watch the U S Open I did not work at all!! Not happy!
Good app lots of ads
jimgautwvbd on 6/17/2018
It’s a great app for checking scores, especially since you can select your favorite players to show at the top, this way you don’t have to search through everyone. However, the video streaming is not good. The ads load right away, in HD not pixelated at all and no problems playing the ads. Then the video comes up and it is pixelated, delayed, and pauses then skips a lot. And every time you start a video you watch more (clear) ads. Hopefully they make enough money from the ads to have better streaming
Featured coverage ends before the round is over
alo19961 on 6/17/2018
It is round 4 and I am not able to be by the TV so I’m using the app to watch. Not only are the features groups very far from the front of the field, it is now telling me that featured coverage has concluded, even though the golfers playing to win the entire tournament(the most exciting part) are still playing.
Limited coverage
duckhook65 on 6/17/2018
The coverage that you can watch live is not good. Needs to be expanded to cover more players. Very disappointed
Utter fish on 6/17/2018
The app crashes every 15 minutes
App Failed to Work at the Course

Piece of garbage and a waste of time
Nice update
letmejustpostthereview on 6/16/2018
Open app and told there’s an update, no update in App Store. Just keeps going in circles. Tried to use the USGA website to see the leaderboard and it directs you to the app that doesn’t open because of an update that doesn’t exist.
Doesn’t work with AirPlay
ItsDerek on 6/16/2018
Doesn’t work with AirPlay. Video shuts off as soon as you shut off the screen or it shuts itself off for standby.
Can’t even open
madoliver2 on 6/16/2018
Says I don’t have an internet connection ... tap retry countless times. No change. Worthless.
Broadey on 6/15/2018
10000% garbage app, I hope nobody watches due to them making it like the masters then producing a garbage app
Great app
Brian95008 on 6/15/2018
Using on a iPhone X. Great app. Always up to date, easy to understand and live videos are fantastic!
dloftis17 on 6/15/2018
This app is so glitchy it's ridiculous! Not even sure why they tried to offer live coverage because the videos are grainy and freeze constantly, even with a great connection.
Cuts out every couple minutes
Crapple29 on 6/15/2018
I was very excited at first, air played it to TV, but then every few minutes it would stop playing and I would have to relaunch. For that reason I give it 2 stars. I guess it ok if you want to watch a couple minutes here and there?
Tiger Woods of apps
BaldimoreBanker on 6/15/2018
Great, if you want to watch advertisements. However, when it’s time to watch actual golf- it fails miserably. My favorite golf major of the year and I can’t watch it- this app is the equivalent of two quadruple bogeys in a round. Don’t bother!
Like a trip back to 1995
Bengoshiny on 6/15/2018
If you want to know what it was like to watch anything back in the old days, off a 14000 baud modem, use this app. It’s unwatchable. It’s constantly repeating pausing quitting dying echoing fuzzing out, even on a strong LTE signal, and especially freezes just as Tiger Woods is striking a birdie putt. I’ve never had this problem with the Masters App. God awful. I’ll also add there is no iPad version, you have to run the junk iPhone app on your iPad. Back to the future I guess.
Nice app on the iPhone. Why no iPad version?
ABQDon on 6/15/2018
This app would be perfect as an iPad app. Disappointing that they don’t have one.
Geo1son on 6/15/2018
just absolute crap. Will not play over ten minutes of coverage without locking up or crashing/freezing. It’s just garbage you know I downloaded this app over and over each year and you would think whoever is making it would actually want it to work. It’s the same garbage as last year, and the year before that and the year before that it is a waste of time do not download.
Great app with no options.
Benjamin Hancrotch on 6/15/2018
This is great, but please give the option to turn off captions. I’m watching on a small screen and the subtitles take up the entire bottom left making it pretty tough to read the scoreboard and even see what’s going on sometimes. I’ll give it a full 5 if this becomes an option.
No iPad
ayoburt on 6/15/2018
How do you not support iPad in a video streaming app?
Add Chromecast
Chauncyboi on 6/15/2018
Always annoying, but a decent app. Need to add chromecast my goodness
Great for data , poor for video
mnoya on 6/14/2018
The amount of data you get is really well done but if you are hoping to stream the feeds, only the best and fastest WiFi will provide decent streaming. They should have anticipated the huge Tiger affect and built up a better backend. You guys have the money. Pay for the pipe.
Little to no coverage on the live stream
Bagel beagle on 6/14/2018
Been trying to stream On this app and it is horrible. I have deleted the and and restarted. Still no luck. Disappointed!
Good for Golf
Bunny Butterfingers on 6/14/2018
Can’t believe Pres shot a -4* at Shinnacock.
Not worth the free download
Kelmosbetta on 6/14/2018
In desperate need of upgraded feed technology. Live video has been paused for hours.
Latest upgrade is iPone only
rvtrvlr1 on 6/14/2018
What happened to the iPad compatibility?
Needs improvement
IvyGray on 6/14/2018
6/14/18 audio and video cutting out frequently. Ads run great, though!
Live feed doesn't work
E. Bohnsack on 6/14/2018
I've downloaded the app to watch the live feed and was completely unsuccessful on a strong internet connection. It either showed the ad and went black or simply returned to the selection screen. The other content was okay, but for my main purpose of downloading the app, it was a frustrating failure.
No live coverage
Ghostputter on 6/14/2018
Have used this app in previous years, but this year I get advertisements just fine followed by blank screen. UGH! Please fix!
Not working
Skniofer27 on 6/14/2018
Won’t stream live video...
Terrible live coverage
pppiy on 6/14/2018
Every time I go to watch live coverage it crashes shortly after play starts. What good is it if it just takes a dump.
Shanerbob on 6/14/2018
Your app is horrible. When you try to watch the live featured groups it does not work. But of course the bullsh*t add works! Wish I could give it negative stars!
Live stream is broke again
TopekaHusker on 6/14/2018
361 days to get ready for the US Open and you can’t get your app to stream live footage. I know this is the only time this app is used all year but really. Live doesn’t work from your website either. Considering how much money FOX is paying you maybe you could fix that?
Live streaming needs help!
Darmok N. Jalad on 6/14/2018
Looks like a pretty comprehensive app, but live video isn’t working well at all as of Thursday morning. I get to watch the advertisement followed by a blank screen. One time I did get to see about 30 seconds of play before the feed quit. Probably not an app issue, but rather a server issue?
Won’t work!
gmull15 on 6/14/2018
The American Express ad works perfectly then I get a black screen! Yes, I am on WiFi.
nate diggity dogggg on 6/14/2018
No video live nada
No streaming
pingjim on 6/14/2018
How can it be 2018 on a Thursday and USgA has a crappy app that any handle volume? Don’t waste your time with this app - go to ESPN #usopenfail-again
No live video
Remipie on 6/14/2018
Live video feed was working all morning but stopped twenty minutes ago and won’t comeback whether I’m connected to WiFi or not.👎🏻
First day and already crashing.
mcoff0611 on 6/14/2018
Come on USGA....step it up. This app is garbage and keeps crashing constantly. How do you not anticipate a TON of people are going to want to watch the open...
Good when it works
mjjjms on 6/14/2018
Unfortunately, the live video works only sporadically. The commercials, however, work flawlessly. Is this on purpose?!?
Buggy and Poor Video Quality
Lymbyc on 6/14/2018
If you’re downloading this app to watch coverage of the 2018 US Open, you will be disappointed. I don’t know why they decide to hand early coverage rights of a major over to a media group that does that does this stuff up to four times a year - audio goes in and out several times a hole, video quality is equal to that of the Atari game console, and blackouts are sighted more frequently than the golfers we’re supposed to be watching. My recommendation is don’t waste your time with this app, just wait until the cable broadcast comes on and keep up with scores on PGA tour website or live app.
Figure it out
mpharr3 on 6/14/2018
You’d think after having poor live audio and video for the last few opens they’d have made some changes... they didn’t. Pretty much unwatchable because it either blacks out, you get double audio or it keeps freezing and replaying the same shots.
Where’s the golf
Sick of mediocrity on 6/14/2018
App promised EVERY SHOT of featured group...screen is black and has been for quite some time....BE BETTER!!!!!!
Not working for live coverage
Ralpus on 6/14/2018
The app. and the USGA website are not working at all for live viewing. What’s the point of having these apps if you can’t enjoy the live coverage without constant buffering.
Designed by a non golfer and a handicapped tech team
DomariNolo on 6/14/2018
Why do I have to search 2 folders deep for a leaderboard?? It should be on the first log in screen. And why does the live feed continually freeze, restart, and eventually drop me?? I am on a home WiFi, so it’s not my data plan or cell service either. Disappointment from the USGA. Maybe they would be happier if golf was only enjoyed on AM radio....
Live stream doesn’t work!
On the Rox on 6/14/2018
Live stream doesn’t work! Very frustrating missing a major while traveling.
No Live Video
Spartidonna on 6/14/2018
Can watch nothing but the commercials. When it switches to the live stream it blacks out. Early on when it did work the sound was ahead by about 3 seconds. Not worth the time and space on my phone. Good luck.
Video streaming
Musedoasis on 6/14/2018
The video streaming is awful. Stops and starts, or the app just crashes. That nice AMEX commercial plays flawlessly though. And no IPAD app?
