When we first started WherestheMatch.com, we concentrated on the big 4 sports in the UK, Football, Rugby Union, Rugby League and Cricket. However, Golf has become increasingly popular in the UK and USA and the TV rights to broadcast Golf has become very competitive as the world of Golf advertising follows suit.

Whilst we don't actually show daily listings of when Golf is live on TV, we have outlined which channel has the TV Rights to the US PGA Tour and European Tour weekly competitions, including the Golf Majors: The British Open Championship on TV, The US Masters on TV, The British Open on TV and PGA Championship on TV as well as the Ryder Cup on TV. We also list the TV rights for Womens Golf, which is rapidly growing since the dominance of the Womens game in China.

Golf is regularly shown live on TV from Thursday to Sunday, with the final two rounds being played over the weekend. Most TV broadcasters will follow the leaders of each tournemant throught their live streaming, and they will always try to show players from the "Top 20 World Rankings" such as Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickleson and Brandt Snedeker.
