Sky Sports to show all four 2019 majors

Published:

All four of golf's majors are to be shown live on Sky Sports, making it a sizzling 2019 summer.
And it all kicks-off with the US Masters at Augusta on April 11-14 with the blanket coverage including live practice sessions as part of the On The Range broadcast, Wednesday's Par 3 Contest, featured groups and holes - including Amen Corner - plus all four tournament rounds. 

The action then switches a month later to the US PGA Championship on the Black Course at Bethpage State Park on Long Island where Rory McIlroy will be chasing his third title. It will be staged between May 16-19.

Next up is the US Open at Pebble Beach, scene of Tigr Woods's stunning 15-shot victory in 2000 and Graeme McDowell's win a decade later.

Last but not least, The Open completes the men's major schedule as it returns for only the second time to Northern Ireland with Royal Portrush hosting the historic event for the first time since 1951. 

Barney Francis Head of Sky Sports said: "It promises to be a stunning year for golf fans with countless fascinating stories of the best players on the planet jostling for the biggest prizes on pristine courses."

Sky will show over 100 tournaments this year, including the Solheim Cup, all four World Golf Championship competitions and events each week from the European and PGA Tours.

Plus all five women's Majors are also live on Sky Sports this year, including Georgia Hall's bid to defend her Women's British Open title at Woburn in August.
