Sky Sports extends golf rights for women |

Sky Sports has announced a three-year extension of its existing rights agreements for the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) and the Ladies European Tour (LET).

With the extension of the LPGA deal, Sky Sports will continue to be home to all five women’s golf majors: the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, the Evian Championship, ANA Inspiration, the US Women’s Open, and the AIG Women’s Open.

The Women’s Scottish Open and the Solheim Cup will be shown in a three-year contract extension on Sky Sports Golf.

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. “

This year Sky is celebrating 25 years of Women’s Golf on Sky. In 2021, Sky will broadcast 35 women’s golf tournaments, including all 5 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.
