Good news if you’re a Sky Sports subscriber and a fan of PGA Tour golf.


The broadcaster has won the rights to show exclusively live coverage of the the tour until at last 2022 thanks to a new seven-year deal announced today.

The agreement means that Sky Sports will be the only place that viewers will be able to enjoy seeing the likes of Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson competing live on the world’s richest golf circuit.

The deal, which begins in 2015, extends Sky's partnership with the PGA Tour into a 30th year, whilst also strengthening Sky Sports' golf coverage.

As well as the PGA Tour, Sky Sports offers viewers coverage three of golf's four majors (the Masters, US Open and PGA Championship), the Ryder Cup, all four World Golf Championship events, 32 events from the European Tour, LPGA events (including the US Women’s Open), and amateur tour events.
"Sky is the pre-eminent sports network in the United Kingdom" - Tim Finchem, PGA Tour commissioner

The new agreement with the PGA Tour comprises:

PGA Tour: 32 events live, including the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, The Players Championship from Sawgrass, and the Arnold Palmer Invitational from Bay Hill.

FedExCup Playoffs: All four season ending events, the Barclays and Deutsche Bank Championship in August and the BMW Championship, and TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola in September.

The Presidents Cup: The next four biennial matches between the USA and an international team representing the rest of the world minus Europe in 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2021.

Announcing the new deal, Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports, said: “Sky Sports is the home of golf, with more of the best coverage of the best players competing in the best events than anywhere else. This new agreement with the PGA Tour is huge for us, enabling us to guarantee our viewers long term US golf coverage for the next decade."

Tour commissioner Tim Finchem added: “Sky is the pre-eminent sports network in the United Kingdom and has been a valued broadcast partner of the PGA Tour. The Tour and Sky strongly believe in the value of our existing relationship and are excited about the future, a future that includes compelling new content that is tailor-made for tournament telecasts in the UK
