Seven picks up US Masters deal

Australian commercial broadcaster Seven Network has acquired media rights for the US Masters golf event, according to the Australian newspaper.

Seven agreed the multi-year deal with the Augusta National Golf Club, which hosts the annual tournament that is one of golf’s ‘majors’.

The deal includes rights on television, online, IPTV, mobile and broadband platforms.

The 2014 US Masters will run from April 10-13, with Australian Adam Scott (pictured) attempting to defend his title.

Rival commercial broadcaster Network Ten previously had Australian rights for the tournament.

Last year, Seven renewed its long-standing rights deal for the Australian Masters and Perth International golf events.
