FOX Sports, the domestic broadcast partner of the United States Golf Association, will air more than 150 hours of live coverage across nine 2018 USGA championships, including more than 45 hours on FOX, FS1 and FOX Deportes and continuous live streaming on FOX Sports Go from the 118th U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, in Southampton, N.Y. FOX Sports will also provide live coverage from the U.S. Women’s Open, U.S. Senior Open, U.S. Senior Women’s Open, four USGA amateur championships and the 40th Curtis Cup Match.

FS1 will broadcast the “Celebration of Champions” from 4:30-6 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, June 12 from Shinnecock Hills. The newly-created “Celebration of Champions” is a four-hole exhibition that will highlight 2017 USGA champions. Four-time U.S. Open champion Jack Nicklaus will headline the event and help launch the festivities.

Two films in the “Epics” series will be featured around U.S. Women’s Open and U.S. Open coverage. “Two Winners,” which will air on FS1 from 8-9 p.m. EDT on May 31, tells the story of Se Ri Pak and amateur Jenny Chuasiriporn and their magical duel in the 1998 U.S. Women’s Open. “Tiger and Rocco” features the dramatic Monday playoff between Tiger Woods and Rocco Mediate to determine the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines. The film will be televised on FOX from 1-2 p.m. EDT on June 3 and on FS1 from 9-10 p.m. on June 4.

Additionally, the USGA will provide live streaming from the U.S. Open on its digital platforms – usopen.com and the U.S. Open app, as well as live streaming of the U.S. Women’s Open, U.S. Senior Open, U.S. Amateur and U.S. Women’s Amateur on usga.org. The USGA’s global digital coverage will include exclusive live action on three channels – two featured groups channels and a featured holes channel – on usopen.com and the U.S. Open app during the first and second rounds of the U.S. Open (June 14-15). The USGA will also broadcast this year’s U.S. Open to more than 190 countries and territories on six continents through its international broadcast partners.

Beginning in 2018, Rolex will be the exclusive presenting partner of coverage for eight USGA championships, including the U.S. Women’s Open, U.S. Senior Open and U.S. Amateur. Rolex’s commitment will allow an uninterrupted broadcast of these championships, providing fans hours of continuous live action.

“FOX Sports has furthered its commitment to an innovative viewing experience with its coverage of our championships, in a format that will deliver more golf content to fans around the world,” said Mike Davis, CEO of the USGA. “At the same time, Rolex’s partnership and its unwavering support of amateur and professional golf will provide viewers more live coverage and fresh perspectives than ever before.”
