Fox Sports bags raft of golf broadcast renewals

Australia's Fox Sports network has confirmed a range of new golf broadcast contracts, on the eve of its coverage of the 2015 Masters.

Fox has secured exclusive Australian live rights to the US Open and US PGA championships for the next four years.

It has also confirmed new deals to cover the PGA Tour, European Tour, Asian Tour and US Ladies PGA Tour live until 2018.

The rights acquisitions add to a Fox golf rights portfolio which already includes live Masters and British Open coverage.

Both those deals run until 2017.

Fox Sports chief executive Patrick Delany said: “The Masters is one of those truly magic sporting events. It’s the tournament that every player wants to win in their lifetime and it puts golf on the back pages, so it is a great time to remind fans that Fox Sports is truly the home of golf.

“These new broadcast arrangements, which have all been made very recently, have ensured that golf fans will continue to see all of the major tournaments and tours from around the world, right across the year."
