LPGA extends broadcasting partnership with ESPN


The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) has announced the renewal of its partnership with leading broadcaster ESPN.

In this extended collaboration, ESPN will continue to provide coverage of eight LPGA tournaments over the next two years through its streaming platform, ESPN+.

ESPN+ will cover selected LPGA Tour events, offering live coverage of the rounds of four featured groups—two in the morning and two in the afternoon. These highlighted groups will receive special attention during the live broadcast. The partnership also includes coverage of additional LPGA events to be unveiled in 2024, along with the CME Group Tour Championships in 2023 and 2024.

“ESPN’s commitment to covering world-class golf and women’s sports has never been stronger, and having more of the LPGA on ESPN+ is a vital component of that commitment,” said Tim Bunnell, Senior Vice President of Programming and International for ESPN.

“With PGA Tour live on ESPN+, the Masters, PGA Championship, TGL and now the LPGA on ESPN+, we’re bringing more golf to more fans than ever before.”

Building on previous collaborations, ESPN+ had previously aired live, exclusive featured group coverage of the LPGA Tour in the preceding year.

ESPN, owned by The Walt Disney Company and Hearst Communications through their joint venture ESPN Inc., is a prominent American international basic cable sports channel. The network, initially launched in 1979 under the name Entertainment and Sports Programming Network by Bill Rasmussen, Scott Rasmussen and Ed Eagan, continues to expand its coverage of diverse sports content.
