PGA Tour TV deal announced

I don't have time to go into it, and since most of the news has already leaked anyway, check out the PGATour's site for the details of the TV deal.

The main points are these:

"CBS and NBC will provide weekend coverage of the PGA TOUR FedEx Cup competition for the 2007 through 2012 seasons. Also beginning in 2007, The Golf Channel will become the TOUR’s exclusive cable partner."

A win for the Golf Channel, it would seem.

No mention of the Canadian Open or a new schedule — yet.

The entire press release can be found here.

The Golf Channel showing the early rounds should be good for golf fans as they will likely air more early round coverage, and perhaps even early 3rd and 4th round coverage. After all what else are they going to show - more infomercials?
