Sky Sports has announced a ‘multi-year’ extension to its broadcast deal to show a minimum of 36 live PGA Tour events each year in Britain and Ireland.

The deal is part of the strategic partner relationship that the Tour has with Warner Bros Discovery.

The deal covers all PGA TOUR FedExCup events including the FedExCup Playoffs, the TOUR Championship and Presidents Cup.

Early Coverage, Marquee Group, Featured Holes and Featured Groups coverage will be retained as well as the elements of coverage that have become familiar over recent years including on-site with the Sky Cart, Sky Zone and on-course commentary from Paul McGinley among others.

“We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with the PGA TOUR,” said Sky Sports Managing Director, Jonathan Licht.

“The extended deal cements Sky Sports’ place as the home of golf in the UK and Ireland and means our customers will be able to follow the key live action on the TOUR for years to come.”

“Sky has been a long-term partner to Discovery and now Warner Bros. Discovery for more than 30 years, helping to bring our channels and content to millions of people,” added Warner Bros. Discovery Sports Europe President and Managing Director, Andrew Georgiou.

“Building on this relationship and extending PGA TOUR coverage on Sky Sports is a clear winner for viewers in the UK & Ireland, particularly given the channel’s proven commitment to innovative golf broadcasting and excellent live coverage.”

Sky Sports Golf will show all four men’s Majors, all five women’s Majors and both men’s and women’s tours – well over 100 tournaments in total over the course of 2022 and beyond.

It also shows weekly events on the DP World Tour including the Horizon Irish Open coming up later this month.
