ESPN and ESPN+ will bring golf fans multiple ways to watch and enjoy all of the action in the 104th edition of the PGA Championship from Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, OK, the week of May 16-22, including a new alternate telecast during live play.
Since ESPN’s return to live coverage of the PGA Championship in 2020 after a 30-year absence, ESPN and ESPN+ have offered full day, first tee to last putt coverage of the first two rounds along with weekend morning viewing and more live play and viewing options for the historic tournament than it had ever had.
With more than 230 hours of live play across ESPN and ESPN+ during the four days of the championship, fans will get traditional coverage as well as exclusive Featured Groups and Featured Hole presentations.
New this year, ESPN is bringing an additional viewing option to golf for the first time with an alternate telecast – PGA Championship with Joe Buck & Michael Collins – that will complement the event’s traditional television production.
In addition to the coverage of live play, ESPN’s signature news and information program SportsCenter will have reports from Southern Hills for the entire week of the event and ESPN.com will provide extensive digital coverage. And ESPN+ will have three-hour practice round coverage programs at noon on both Tuesday and Wednesday of tournament week. CBS will air afternoon coverage on the weekend days.
