Taking our coverage to the next level - 05/02/2013
The PGA EuroPro Tour is taking its TV coverage to the next level in 2013 with extra on-course cameras, specialist on-course commentary from former PGA Tour and European Tour star John E. Morgan and every programme delivered in glorious high definition for the first time.
Presentation duties will be shared between Sky Sports presenter & Golfing World host Tony Wrighton, Sky Sports News anchor Charlotte Jackson and familiar PGA EuroPro Tour face Spoony. Our hosts will be joined by Morgan, who will enhance the coverage with player performance and statistical analysis, technique demonstrations and on course reports. Spoony will bring his own unique and popular style to the broadcast, providing features by interviewing players and reviewing holes and local facilities with resident pros.
Today’s Golfer reporter Kit Alexander is joining the team in 2013. Kit will be interviewing key players throughout the year, investigating the characters behind the players on Tour and what it really takes to become a Tour professional.
Revamped opening credits will add to the overall quality of the broadcast, with European Tour commentators Richard Kaufman and Ross McFarlane on board for the 2013 season, alongside Morgan and established sports commentator Simon Golding.
With seven new courses, including The Oxfordshire and Prince’s, on board for 2013, the PGA EuroPro Tour is investing heavily in its TV production, introducing two additional cameras and filming entirely in high definition as it looks to take its coverage, and UK development golf, to the next level.
