The Voice of Golf

January 23rd, 2015

The comments of Peter Alliss about the broadcasting of The Open Championship beyond 2016 are entirely in line with the sentiments that have been expressed to me by readers over the past two weeks. Most people think that the BBC will lose the television rights due to a lack of interest as well as a lack of cash.

With negotiations between the R&A, BBC and Sky Sports believed to be still on-going, let us hope that it is not too late to achieve a ‘Masters-style’ compromise, with Sky getting live broadcasting rights for all four days of The Championship and the BBC able to show the final two rounds and highlights of days one and two.
