Feb 11, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Golf Channel and the LPGA Tour have signed a 10-year agreement, making the network the exclusive cable home of the tour beginning in 2010.
The LPGA will get a rights fee agreement for domestic broadcast coverage.
Nearly all LPGA Tour events televised in the U.S. will be carried by the Golf Channel, including the entire cable package.
Golf Channel will have three- and four-round coverage of domestic events, including one major championship, and feeds of international LPGA events. The network also will have early round coverage, which will be featured on other networks during the weekend.
The deal gives Golf Channel continued exclusive rights to the biennial Solheim Cup, the marquee and the international team competition between the United States and Europe.
The network’s 2009 coverage includes 12 LPGA Tour events, the McDonald’s LPGA Championship held June 11-14 and the Solheim Cup held Aug. 17-23.
