A deal for Sky Sports to continue broadcasting the US Open in the UK has been struck with just a month to spare before this year’s championship.

The broadcaster’s existing deal with the USGA expired following last year’s tournament at Brookline and negotiations to extend had proven to be problematic.

However, it has been confirmed this morning that the organisations have agreed terms on a new three-year package that will see the US Open continue to be shown exclusively live in the UK for the next three years.

The US Women’s Open, US Amateur Championship, US Women’s Amateur Championship and US Senior Open will also be broadcast live on Sky Sports, as will the Curtis Cup.

Sky is billing 2023 as its “biggest ever year of live golf”, with The Open, Solheim Cup and Ryder Cup – as well as DP World Tour and PGA Tour events – still to come after this week’s US PGA Championship and next month’s US Open at Los Angeles Country Club.

Securing continued coverage of the US Open is another significant coup for Sky Sports. Earlier this month, it renewed its agreement with the English Football League, fending off reported interest from over-the-top sports streaming platform DAZN.
