Sky extends PGA Tour golf rights

UK pay TV operator Sky has signed a new seven-year deal with the PGA Tour, extending its live golf coverage until 2022.

The new deal, which begins in 2015, will give Sky Sports viewers exclusive live access to the US PGA Tour, Fed-Ex Cup Playoff and The President’s Cup matches.

From this year, Sky will also provide more additional digital content on the Sky Sports iPad app, Sky Sports website and via the red button.

Sky first started showing live PGA Tour golf in 1991, with the new deal extending its partnership with the Tour into its 30th year.

“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,” said Barney Francis, managing director of Sky Sports.
