All four Majors live on Sky Sports in a spectacular 2019 beginning with the Masters Tournament in April

February 18th, 2019 | Posted in: News

The drama and emotion of all four Majors will come to life for Sky Sports customers this year as the biggest names in golf hunt down the most treasured prizes in the sport.

The new-look Major calendar sees the Masters Tournament at Augusta National in April and The Open Championship at Royal Portrush in July serve as bookends, with the PGA Championship and US Open between in an intense three-month period, it promises to be a thrilling season of golf and Sky Sports has it all covered.

All five women’s Majors are also live on Sky Sports this year, Georgia Hall will seek to defend her Women’s British Open title at Woburn in August.

The first men’s Major of the year at one of golf’s most revered courses, the Masters on Sky Sports Golf will provide fans all the tee-to-green action from April 11-14, plus Tournament highlights throughout the week.

Live coverage on Sky Sports Golf will include:

  • Live practice sessions as part of the On The Range broadcast
  • Wednesday’s Par 3 Contest
  • Featured groups and holes including Amen Corner
  • All four Tournament rounds live

Then a month later in New York, the PGA Championship moves to the second slot in the Major schedule, with the field taking on the Black Course at Bethpage State Park on Long Island.

Previously the final Major of the year, the PGA Championship, is now live on Sky Sports from 16-19 May, with defending champion Brooks Koepka looking to retain the trophy he lifted last August, while Tiger Woods will be hopeful having won the US Open at this same course in 2002.

Another course that Tiger will remember fondly follows as the US Open moves to Pebble Beach, scene of his stunning 15-shot victory in 2000.

Then in July, The Open returns for only the second time to Northern Ireland, with Royal Portrush hosting the historic event for the first time since 1951. Now the final Major in the calendar year, Sky Sports has televised The Open since 2015 and won a BAFTA for its coverage.

David Rey, Managing Director of Sky Business said,“Sky Sports is the only place to watch all four golf Majors and it’s great news for our customers.  We are teeing off with the Masters at the beginning of April which promises to be a thrilling event for golf fans – the tournament is famous for producing some unmissable sporting moments. What a summer it’s going to be!”

Sky Sports will show over 100 tournaments in 2019 including The Solheim Cup, all four WGC competitions and events each week from the European and PGA Tours.
