You can watch more golf than ever before this week at the Players Championship
This year’s Players Championship will be broadcast unlike any other in history. You can literally see every shot hit at TPC Sawgrass during the event this week.
It’s called Every Shot Live, a very straightforward name, and it’s a play out of the Masters playbook, where we saw every shot hit at Augusta National last year.
At the Players, where there is a much larger field, that means more than 32,000 shots will be streamed for your viewing pleasure. In order to make it happen, 120 cameras will be used throughout the course, 36 of which are new. That’s nearly 747 hours worth of coverage. Good luck keeping up.
For those at home who want this much golf and more, it will require a subscription to PGA Tour Live. Many viewers who have streamed the Tour in past years may already have this, so they’re in luck. For all others, $65 will get you early-round coverage each week, streaming capabilities on the weekend, and now Every Damn Shot at TPC Sawgrass.
According to the Tour, the system was tested at the Waste Management Phoenix Open in January, and it has the staff in Ponte Vedra excited.
“It’s one of the most exciting undertakings in technology that we’ve ever done at the PGA Tour,” Scott Gutterman, SVP of Digital Operations, said. “The Players has traditionally been where we have introduced new technology to golf. We look forward to showcasing what we believe is the future of golf coverage.”
