Golf Channel to televise Mercedes, Sony

Advertiser Staff

Starting in January, the Golf Channel will embark on its 15-year agreement as the exclusive cable television home for the PGA Tour.

The network will feature early-round coverage of the entire FedEx Cup season, including the World Golf Championships, The Tour Championship and The Players Championship.

In total, early-round coverage of 33 events will air on the Golf Channel.

Also included in the package will be 13 full four-round events beginning with the season's first three tournaments — the Mercedes-Benz Championships on Maui, the Sony Open on O'ahu and the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic — and the seven official money events following The Tour Championship.
