NBC SPORTS GROUP TO PROVIDE MORE THAN 50 TOTAL HOURS OF THE PRESIDENTS CUP 2011

All Four Rounds from Australia to be Shown Live on Golf Channel

23 Hours of Golf Channel’s Live From News Coverage to Surround Play

NEW YORK – Sept. 26, 2011 – The NBC Sports Group will provide 50 ½ total hours of coverage of The Presidents Cup 2011 from the Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia, from Wednesday, Nov. 16, through Sunday, Nov. 20, on both Golf Channel and NBC.

Despite Melbourne’s 16-hour difference from the Eastern Time zone, Golf Channel will provide 27 ½ hours of live coverage of all four rounds, much of it in primetime, beginning at 9 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Nov. 16 (see schedule below). It will mark the first time that all four rounds of a Presidents Cup competition played outside of North America will be presented live. Golf Channel (Thursday and Friday) and NBC (Saturday and Sunday) will also combine to show 23 hours of re-packaged coverage for replay.

“The Presidents Cup is one of golf’s preeminent events and I’m pleased that we’re able to service the golf fan by utilizing multiple assets in our portfolio -- Golf Channel for live coverage and NBC for comprehensive coverage on the weekend,” said Mark Lazarus, Chairman, NBC Sports Group.

Golf Channel will also televise 23 live hours of news coverage surrounding live play in the form of Live From The Presidents Cup, originating both from Melbourne and the network’s Orlando studios.

The Presidents Cup, which will be played in 2011 for the ninth time, was developed to give the world's best non-European players an opportunity to compete in international team match-play competition against a team from the United States.
