NBC Sports will remain the home of the Ryder Cup through 2030.
The PGA of America and NBC Sports Group announced the unprecedented move Thursday. The Ryder Cup has been televised by NBC since 1991.
“We’re excited to continue our longstanding relationship with the PGA of America and renew the Ryder Cup, one of the most prestigious properties in sports, through 2030,” said Mark Lazarus, the chairman of NBC Sports Group. “This multi-platform agreement allows our broadcast, cable, digital and regional platforms to work with the PGA on their prestigious events and important initiatives.”
The agreement includes new programming and special coverage of the Ryder Cup, including regular Ryder Cup preview shows, vignettes, features, reports and points updates on NBC and Golf Channel; a Ryder Cup documentary series on both networks; live coverage of practice rounds (first time ever); and the Ryder Cup selection show on Golf Channel.
The Senior PGA Championship will continue to air live on Golf Channel (weekday coverage) and NBC (weekend coverage) through 2030, while Golf Channel will continue live coverage of all four rounds of the PGA Professional National Championship.
