PGA Tour signs deal with Eurosport

Thursday, June 25, 2009

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – PGA Tour television coverage in the United Kingdom will continue under an agreement with Eurosport to broadcast the remaining tournaments on the 2009 schedule.

The agreement Thursday came two days after the PGA Tour said its six-year deal with Setanta was over because the Irish-based broadcaster had filed for bankruptcy protection.

The PGA Tour will be shown on British Europort and British Eurosport 2, which are accessible in more than 10 million homes in the U.K.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
