Sky Sports is creating a brand new channel for one of the biggest events in the golf calendar – the Players Championship.
The unofficial fifth major will be the 44th Players Championship, to be held from May 11–14 at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
‘Sky Sports THE PLAYERS’ will air behind the scenes features and documentaries, as well as a special preview show on Wednesday 10 May ‘Live at THE PLAYERS’.
Past winners include Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia and the iconic 17th par-3 island green has created numerous moments of drama over the years.
Sky Sports will also launch its new Sky Zone studio on the range at the tournament, giving viewers a unique insight into player’s warm-ups, swing and practice techniques.
“Will Sergio kick-on from his Masters triumph, Dustin Johnson his sensational pre-injury form, or will the big three of Spieth, McIlroy and Day return to the winner’s circle?,” asks Jason Wessely, Sky Sports Head of Golf.
“THE PLAYERS has the look and feel of a Major, with the world’s best taking on one of golf’s most spectacular courses. We’re incredibly excited to give the tournament the Sky Sports treatment, including a variety of new features to keep fans on top of the action.”
Sky’s Award-winning coverage will come from David Livingstone, Butch Harmon, Paul McGinley and Rich Beem, who’ll be on hand to dissect all of the action from one of golf’s most exciting courses.
