Jason Wessely, Sky Sports Director of Golf, said, “Sky Sports has been a proud supporter of women’s golf for decades. Today we’re excited to announce new agreements with the LPGA and LET, both of which are adding new events to their diaries.

“One of the golf highlights this season was the exciting AIG Women’s Open in Carnoustie, where we showed more hours of coverage than ever before, one of the most important sporting events for women on the calendar.”

Over 25 Years of Women’s Golf Experience Sky Sports broadcasts 35 women’s golf tournaments, including all five majors, the Curtis Cup and the Augusta National Women’s Amateur. In 2022, this will increase with more LPGA and LET events than ever before, including the new Aramco series and attending the AIG Women’s Open in Muirfield.
