This will be the first year that ESPN carries the PGA Championship, thanks to a recent rights deal they struck. The cable network will air six hours each day of the first and second rounds. On Saturday and Sunday, ESPN will carry three hours of early round coverage. ESPN’s coverage will be anchored by Scott Van Pelt with help from lead analyst David Duval. (ESPN+ will stream extensive coverage of all four rounds online. You can see our full PGA Championship streaming schedule here, and sign up for an ESPN+ account here.)

Once the cut is made and the pressure is ratcheted up, CBS will take over the broadcast. The familiar faces of the CBS Sports TV team, including Jim Nantz and Nick Faldo, will air six hours of coverage on Saturday and Sunday focused on the leaders.
