PGA Tour LIVE to show more than 4,300 HOURS of golf coverage in 2022

PGA Tour LIVE's new partnership with ESPN+ will provide golf fans with more than 4,300 hours of golf coverage throughout 2022, which marks an increase of more than 3,200 hours compared to 2021. 

ESPN+ will be showing coverage from 35 tournaments, including the first event of 2022 at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii. 

The direct-to-consumer streaming service shows live golf before the full broadcast coverage begins for the masses.

PGA Tour LIVE had previously been streamed via NBC Sports Golf, but ESPN+ is now taking the reigns, raising the bar, and reducing costs for golf fans, too. 

ESPN+ is available for $6.99, a reduction from the $9.99 cost of NBC Sports Gold, and an ESPN+ subscription also includes live coverage of a number of other sports as well as original programming.

The platform will be offering four concurrent feeds during PGA Tour events, with Featured Group, Marquee Group, Featured Holes and Main Feed channels.

When network coverage commences (Golf Channel weekdays; NBC / CBS weekends), PGA Tour LIVE will shift to two featured groups and two featured holes until play concludes. 

The PGA Tour LIVE production team will be increasing in staff from 85 to more than 200 as a result of ESPN's new nine-year partnership with the PGA Tour. 

John Swantek, Jonathan Coachman, Lisa Cornwell, Ned Michaels, Christina Kim, Karen Stupples, Mark Immelman, Chantel McCabe, Mark Wilson, Stuart Appleby and Michael Collins have all signed on to participate in the PGA Tour Live coverage.
