ESPN+ to stream 23 PGA Tour events in 2021
December 15, 2020
ESPN+, the US sports streaming platform, and the PGA Tour have reached an agreement for ESPN+ to stream live, featured-hole coverage from 23 PGA Tour events in 2021, starting with the Farmers Insurance Open in January and continuing through the FedExCup Playoffs and the Tour Championship in September.
The new agreement follows a similar pact that covered 12 events in 2020 and comes ahead of the launch of PGA Tour Live on ESPN+, as part of the nine-year US rights agreement announced in March, which begins in 2022.
In 2021, ESPN+ will stream coverage of two featured holes on Saturday and Sunday of each event (selected each day of competition by the PGA Tour), concurrent with the full telecast on CBS or NBC.
