PGA Tour launches new YouTube channel

Golf’s PGA Tour has launched a new paid channel on video-sharing website YouTube that will allow fans to access archived video footage from historic tournaments.

The PGA Tour Rewind channel will feature content produced by PGA Tour Entertainment from as far back as 1990. This will include archived videos of tournaments and season recaps.

The channel will also offer archived footage of players who have won at least 10 PGA Tour events since 1990. Players featured include Tiger Woods, Ernie Els and Vijay Singh.

In addition to tournament recaps, Rewind will include official films from the Presidents Cup, Players Championship and FedExCup Playoffs.

The highlights programmes are around one-hour long and available to subscribers in high-definition.

PGA Tour Rewind is available for $7.99 (€6.05) per month, with a free 14-day trial for all new subscribers.
