May 17, 2021

Here’s a problem golf fans should be glad to have: There will be more hours of live coverage from this week’s PGA Championship at Kiawah than there are actual hours in the day.

Seriously.

For the second straight year, the PGA Championship will feature wire-to-wire 72-hole coverage via CBS Sports, ESPN, ESPN+ and Paramount+. According to the PGA of America, there will be nearly 250 hours of live coverage across all their broadcast, cable and digital assets as part of the second year of their 11-year media rights deal.

For those who like watching their golf on the TV, ESPN and CBS Sports have you covered. You will be able to see “broadcast” coverage from 1-7 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Outside the traditional broadcast windows, ESPN+ will have you covered from the first tee shot to the last putt on Thursday and Friday, plus exclusive featured-group and featured-hole presentations all four days. All told, ESPN and ESPN+ will present more than 229 hours of live play during the four days, up from 134 hours last year at TPC Harding Park.

As is the case for ESPN and ESPN+, CBS’ broadcast coverage will be streaming live on Paramount+.
