PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Beginning with tomorrow’s opening round of the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance, PGATOUR.COM will be offering six hours of live audio play-by-play coverage of most competitive rounds through the remainder of the 2013 PGA TOUR season (through TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola). The live audio stream will be available via PGATOUR.COM, with mobile support coming later in the year.

Users in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico will be able to access the stream for $1.99 per tournament or $9.99 for the remainder of the 2013 season due to rights restrictions, and the rest of the world will be able to access the audio for free.
