    This has potential to be great news and a very positive step away from Sky having the monopoly on Golf - talk of live on You Tube free to air as well as on dedicated US PGA websites.

    Good to see that the US PGA want to ensure that the golf is watched by as many people as possible

    I'd be amazed if it ends up free somewhere.

    They talk a good game during the article. But as a business I don't see them refusing the Sky money without making it back elsewhere......
    My own H4H. Challenge. Get to 16 or pop £20in the pot.

    Can't see them refusing money from sky and then giving it away for free.

    Unless someone comes in with a significant offer what sense does it make to give it away for free.

    Unless they can make a fortune on the advertising revenue

    Someone like You Tube etc can still buy the rights to air but show it free to air

    I agree although some on here don't see the bigger picture and to suggest there will be significant ad revenue to pay for it smacks of one thing. Even more interruptions than we already get on the current feeds, which will make it a difficult and hard viewing experience and one that won't exactly entice a new viewing generation
