EUROPEAN TOUR GOLF SET TO TEE OFF ON SKY SPORT

SKY Sport customers can enjoy LIVE coverage of The European Tour during 2016, and for the next five years, beginning with the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters event which starts today, Wednesday 27 January.

The European Tour features tournaments across 26 countries encompassing those played throughout Europe, including the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Spain, along with tournaments outside Europe – such as the Qatar Masters and the Perth International.

The Tour also boasts some of golf’s biggest names such as Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia, and Henrik Stenson who currently leads the European Tour’s “Race to Dubai” rankings.

The deal also includes the Asian Tour – the official regional sanctioning body for professional golf in Asia, and lists New Zealand player Sean Riordan on its playing roster.

The SMBC Singapore Open will be the first event of the 2016 Asian Tour to be shown on SKY Sport, beginning on 28 January.

“We are pleased to bring SKY Sport customers live coverage and highlights of these tours, which will feature top international players clashing on outstanding golf courses throughout the world,” SKY’s director of sport Richard Last said.
