New Delhi: DSPORT, a premium sports TV channel by Discovery Communications India, has acquired long term India broadcast rights of the PGA Championships, Golf’s fourth and year-ending Major. The 99th PGA Championships is set to be held at the Quail Hollow Club in North Carolina, which will host a Golf Major for the very first time, between August 10-13, 2017. The club holds an annual event on the PGA Tour, the Wells Fargo Championship, besides having hosted several pro-events.
A total of 156 golfers, including India’s Anirban Lahiri are set to tee-off at Quail Hollow on Thursday, August 10 as they look to make the weekend cut.
