PGA Tour holes extension with Indian broadcast partner

Indian pay-television broadcaster Neo Sports has agreed a multi-year extension to its rights deal with golf’s US PGA Tour.

The fresh contract means Neo Sports will continue to broadcast the PGA Tour through until 2021.

In addition to the PGA Tour itself, Neo will also broadcast events from its development series the Web.com Tour, as well as the Champions Tour, the series for players aged 50 and over.
