As part of an agreement between the PGA of America and ESPN, the PGA Championship – considered one of the four most important professional golf competitions – will arrive at Latin America and the Caribbean. The competition will begin today at the Bethpage Black Course in New York, considered one of the most difficult golf fields in the US. ESPN will broadcast the event in 25 countries and territories at a regional level.
The channel plans to record more than 110 streaming hours to broadcast the competition, and more than 22 linear coverage hours. In total, there will be 130 live broadcasting hours, including the first three rounds of the championship and the final one, which will take place on Sunday, May 19th. In addition to ESPN’s coverage, the event can also be followed on ESPN Play (for Latin America, excluding Brazil, and the Caribbean) and WatchESPN (Brazil).
‘PGA of America is excited to partner with ESPN to bring the PGA Championship to golf fans in Latin America and the Caribbean’, said Jeff Price, PGA of America Chief Commercial Officer. ‘Golf is a global sport and we are proud to present the PGA Championship to an expanding international audience that is very passionate about the sport’, he added.
