PGA TOUR Live experiences the Quickening

The PGA TOUR lined up plans to launch its new OTT service PGA TOUR Live this week from the Quicken Tours National. The subscription service, which was announced in April and developed in partnership with MLBAM, will offer fans access to exclusive live coverage of two different marquee morning groups during Thursday (starting at 7:30a) and Friday tournament rounds, which have previously never been available live. Overall, the platform will hit seven tournaments through the remainder of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season and, moving forward, more than 30 PGA TOUR events per season. Its initial coverage will feature Rickie Fowler paired with Ben Crane and James Hahn, as well as K.J. Choi, Danny Lee and John Senden. Friday’s groupings will include Tiger Woods, Bill Haas and Nick Watney as well as Justin Rose, Jimmy Walker and David Lingmerth. Following the conclusion of the featured groups, PGA TOUR Live will shift its live broadcast coverage to the Featured Holes at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club and offer more than 11 hours of live coverage to fans each day.
