    Re: USPGA Championship on BBC

    It's nice to see sky not getting everything their own way. Little coverage from the beeb is much better than no coverage.

    That said, the build up to the open last week was fantastic viewing on the range, practice rounds with radar following players and the Open zone was great.

    Watching players play different shots with the same club was epic viewing. I've been away since Friday so I can't comment on the championship days coverage.

    Re: USPGA Championship on BBC

    For me can only be good for golf because the audience level is now far wider

    As for the coverage of the events from each broadcaster- that's all subjective , some will prefer the sky coverage and all the extras and some will prefer the BBC coverage - more will clearly watch the BBC coverage which imo is good for the game

    The Head of the R&A was very critical of the BBC - let's hope he doesn't need to go back to them with a begging bowl

    I also don't think it's good for any sport for a subscription service to have a monopoly on one sport

    Sounds great to me, will be a nice break from the commentary and adverts at Sky.

    It's not confirmed yet, apparently the length of contract is the sticking point.
