The annual PGA Championship will be shown live across millions of TVs this week, and for those with Time Warner Cable, it brings yet another chance to watch a sporting event in glorious stereoscopic 3D.
Time Warner Cable has had one of the least prolific 3D content strategies so far. It doesn't air ESPN 3D, has no dedicated 3D channels, and has only shown one event in 3D - the Masters golf tournament earlier this year.

However, the PGA Championship is produced by Turner Sports and aired on TNT, both of which have the same parent company as Time Warner Cable. So perhaps there's some sort of cost-sharing benefit going on there.

That's a long-winded way of saying anyone with the nationwide cable provider will be able to watch two four-hour specials in 3D, from 3 PM to 7 PM Eastern Time this Thursday and Friday. Both programs will focus on the par 3 holes involved in the match.

"The addition of 3D television and online technology unfolding at Whistling Straits, a spectacular venue for viewers, is yet another new level of excitement for fans to follow the world’s premier players," said PGA director Casey Morton.

For those without Time Warner Cable, the presentations will also be available in 3D on Those viewers will need a special 3D computer monitor and 3D glasses from Nvidia.

The PGA has a special website up for anyone interested in seeing exact program details
