With just 70 players set to advance to next week's BMW Championship from this tournament's field, the stakes are high.

Playing as a par 71, measuring 7,410 yards with bentgrass greens, the course's location to the Hudson River makes this former landfill site particularly susceptible to wind, bringing further drama to an already mentally demanding tournament.

The course last held this event back in 2019, with Patrick Reed ending the tournament victorious.

That event saw Jon Rahm finish third and the Spaniard is now widely expected to go a step further this year, with the World No.1 and US Open champion the outright favourite to win the 2021 installment.

We have details of all the US, UK, Australian and Canadian broadcasters of this weekend's golf from New Jersey further down in this guide.
