The grand finals of American Golf’s Long Drive Championship, Junior Championship and 9 Hole Championship have been scheduled to air on Sky Sports 4 in the coming weeks.


With the aim of getting more people playing more golf, this summer’s American Golf Championships brought together regional qualifiers from all over the UK & Ireland to showcase the best in golf. Combining incredible competition and entertaining formats, the golfing public can now live through the highs and lows of the competitions with a series of 30-minute and hour-long programmes on Sky Sports.
