Fore! ESPN+ has just announced that they will be the exclusive home to PGA TOUR LIVE.This is part of the PGA TOUR’s new, nine-year domestic rights agreement that was revealed earlier this week. But don’t expect this to show up on your devices anytime soon. PGA TOUR LIVE on ESPN+ is launching in 2022 as part of a nine year deal through 2030.

PGA TOUR LIVE on ESPN+ will also feature on-demand replays of PGA TOUR events, original golf programs, edited speed round recaps and more.
The PGA TOUR’s digital streaming rights were negotiated concurrently with its linear and emerging technology offerings, creating a wide-ranging portfolio of domestic media rights for 2022 through 2030, including Comcast/NBA Sports Group and ViacomCBS, along with The Walt Disney Company’s ESPN+, the leading direct-to-consumer sports streaming service from Disney’s Direct-to-Consumer and International (DTCI) segment and ESPN.
“We are looking forward to working with the PGA TOUR to bring current and future golf fans the next generation of TOUR coverage,” said Jimmy Pitaro, president, ESPN, and co-chairman, Disney Media Networks. “ESPN+ will offer golf fans unprecedented access and storytelling at an incredible value on the industry’s leading sports streaming platform.”
Rick Anderson, Chief Media Officer, PGA TOUR added, “The relationship with Disney and ESPN+ gives the TOUR the opportunity to expand and diversify audiences, and the TOUR and ESPN will work together to bring new and unique content to our fans. ESPN+ will provide a significant growth opportunity for PGA TOUR content through its digital reach, innovative platform and young and diverse audience.”
