Report: BBC could lose US Masters rights

The BBC may lose out on rights to golf’s US Masters – it’s last live golf property – according to a report in The Telegraph.

The UK public-service broadcaster held rights to two days of live coverage from the four-day tournament in a two-year deal covering 2018 and 2019. But despite holding an option for 2020, the report claims that pay-television broadcaster Sky will acquire exclusive rights from next year.

Sky currently holds pay-TV rights to all four days of competition.
