The 2018 PGA Championship will take place from Thursday 9th to Sunday 12th August at the Bellerive Country Club in Town and Country, Missouri.
This will be the 100th PGA Championship, and the second to be held at Bellerive.
The event will be shown live on Eleven Sports, who won the rights to show the championship in Britain and Ireland.
Coverage will start on Thursday at 1.30pm BST with a special ‘On the Range’ segment live from inside ropes of the Bellerive Country Club, where Eleven’s commentary team will analyse the players on the practice ground and preview the Championship.
At 2.23pm BST, Justin Thomas will embark on his defence of the Wanamaker Trophy alongside Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy. The trio’s opening round will be shown live on Eleven Sports, before full coverage of the 2018 PGA Championship begins at 7.00pm BST.
The selected group on day two (Friday) will feature Jon Rahm, English hopeful Justin Rose, and Jordan Spieth who is gunning to become only the sixth person to win the career grand slam. Live coverage of this group will begin at 2.30pm BST before full, live Championship coverage gets underway at 7.00pm BST.
The first two days will also be streamed live on Eleven Sports’ UK & Ireland Facebook Page.
2014 Ryder Cup hero, Jamie Donaldson, will form part of the dynamic commentary team, which also includes Dominik Holyer and Anna Whiteley, and online personality, amateur golfer and host of ‘Seb on Golf’ on YouTube, Seb Carmichael-Brown.
“We are looking forward to maximising this fantastic opportunity to appeal to existing golf fans through comprehensive free-to-air live coverage and analysis, while also growing new audiences with our fresh and innovative ways of delivering leading sports action,” said Danny Menken, group managing director of Eleven Sports.
