The marquee event of the early PGA Tour season is this weekend’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am Tournament, the enormously popular charity event pairing the world’s top professional golfers into teams with celebrity golfers like Bill Murray and Justin Timberlake. You won’t see Justin Timberlake at Pebble Beach this year (he’s performing at the Grammy Awards), but Bill Murray will be competing (and clowning around!). Actors Andy Garcia and Ray Romano are also entered at Pebble Beach, along with sports figures Wayne Gretzky, Aaron Rodgers, and Bill Belichick, plus musicians Kenny G and Huey Lewis.

The broadcast schedule for the entire Pebble Beach Tournament has already been released. CBS Sports provides live golf online coverage for free Saturday and Sunday, while the Golf Channel fills in the gaps with early round coverage streaming online.

Just be aware that Tiger Woods won’t be appearing this year at Pebble Beach, and Vijay Singh remains a question mark because of his involvement in the emerging “deer antler spray” scandal.

WATCH LIVE GOLF ONLINE: PGA 2013 TOUR

Last year PGA.com streamed four major tournaments, but this year they’re really teeing off with free live streams of nearly every tournament of the whole season. All the way through the President’s Cup scheduled for early October of this year, you’ll be able to watch live golf on Saturday and Sunday, in many cases for free, with no cable TV subscription authentication required. You can find streaming live golf at PGA.com, or at the sites of the networks providing the coverage, CBS Sports and NBC Sports. Tablet viewers can watch the CBS events directly from CBSSports.com with CBS’ mobile-optimized video player, while watching the NBC events on a tablet or a smartphone requires the free NBC Sports Live Extra app.

Additionally, live streaming of Thursday and Friday “early round” coverage of most tournaments can be found online at the Golf Channel online. The Golf Channel’s online broadcasts require an active cable television subscription, and are only available if your cable carrier provides the Golf Channel. A couple of tournaments will have an ESPN online web cast, which also requires a cable TV subscription.

BILL MURRAY PEBBLE BEACH LIVE GOLF VIDEOS

It’s no secret to golf fans that watching Bill Murray’s antics at Pebble Beach is one the funnest treats of the PGA season. Last year, Murray entertained the Pebble Pro-Am crowd by wearing a camouflage  “wacky groundskeeper” suit a la his role in the movie “Caddyshack”, and mixing some football into his golf game. You’ll see in this video that Bill Murray has a surprisingly impressive golf swing.

What’s even more impressive is how friendly and engaging Bill Murray is with the everyday fans who come to Pebble Beach. This three-minute amateur video shot by a Pebble Beach attendee in 2006 shows that the “Groundhog Day” star slices out one-liners, chomps cigars, and banters hilariously with individual fans — even when the (TV network) cameras aren’t rolling.

Back in 2010, Murray played Pebble Beach with a badly injured knee that would require surgery. That didn’t affect his monkeyshines on the golf course, though, as seen in this video where he swipes a hat from a fan, then pays her for it with whatever cash and prescription painkillers he can find in his pocket.

Will you stay in this chilly weekend to watch Bill Murray yuk it up on the fairways? Are you a big enough golf fan that you’ll watch the early rounds on Thursday and Friday afternoons? And how the heck can “deer antler spray” affect someone’s golf game? Chip in your opinions in the comments section below.
