Indian pay-television broadcaster DSport has acquired rights to a number of marquee events on golf’s European Tour.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed but the Television Post website reported that it began with the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, which got underway earlier today (Wednesday). The event is the first tournament of the European Tour’s 2019 Rolex Series.

Motorcycle manufacturer Hero MotoCorp will serve as DSport’s on-air live telecast partner during European Tour broadcasts.

Indian players on the European Tour include Shubhankar Sharma, who last year won the Tour’s Rookie of the Year award.
