I don’t have time to go into it, and since most of the news has already leaked anyway, check out the PGATour’s site for the details of the TV deal.
The main points are these:
“CBS and NBC will provide weekend coverage of the PGA TOUR FedEx Cup competition for the 2007 through 2012 seasons. Also beginning in 2007, The Golf Channel will become the TOURÃ¯¿½s exclusive cable partner.”
A win for the Golf Channel, it would seem.
No mention of the Canadian Open or a new schedule Ã¯¿½ yet.
The entire press release can be found here.
