HONOLULU – Golf Channel began its first step into the 3D waters Saturday at the Sony Open at Waialae Country Club, marking the first time a co-sponsored PGA Tour event is broadcast in 3D. Between Saturday’s coverage and final-round coverage Sunday, Golf Channel will have provided 16 hours of coverage, 8 of which are live and 8 of replays.
Rich Lerner (play-by-play), Curt Byrum (analyst) and Steve Sands (on course, interviews) called the 3D action on Saturday and will be back again Sunday. Viewers need a 3D-compatible set, glasses and a set-top connected to the TV with an HDMI cable.
The first two hours of coverage Sunday (4:30-6:30 p.m. ET) will feature the green at the second hole and holes three and four, followed by a two-hour replay. The final two live hours (8:30-10:30 p.m. ET) will feature the 16th green and holes 17 and 18.
