PGA TOUR Entertainment providing CBS Sports Network with special programming for first time, airing weeks of WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and The Barclays

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (July 28, 2014) – As an expansion of the longstanding broadcast partnership between the PGA TOUR and CBS Sports, PGA TOUR Entertainment is providing special programming that will air on CBS Sports Network during the weeks of the CBS Television Network’s broadcasts of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and The Barclays.

PGA TOUR Entertainment has produced four 60-minute recap shows as well as four half-hour “countdown” shows, entitled PGA TOUR Presents The 9… . Two tournament recaps and two countdown shows will air twice on CBS Sports Network during each tournament week.
The programming begins today at 9 p.m. ET with consecutive countdown shows, followed at 10 p.m. with an hour-long summary of the 2000 Bridgestone Invitational, widely remembered for champion Tiger Woods’ final approach shot to the 18th green at Firestone Country Club in virtual darkness. The first countdown show features “The 9 Clutch Hole Outs” and the second features “The 9 Greatest Rounds.”

The second package of shows for the week of The Barclays will include a compilation of the four 2007 FedExCup Playoffs when Tiger Woods won the inaugural title, the 2012 FedExCup Playoffs when Brandt Snedeker emerged the champion, plus “The 9 Toughest Tests” and “The 9 All-Time Records.”

“We are very pleased to expand our relationship with CBS Sports by providing this package of special programming and giving fans the opportunity to relive these memorable moments on CBS Sports Network,” said Rick Anderson, PGA TOUR Executive Vice President for Global Media. “This is a natural extension of our partnership that also utilizes some of the great action captured through CBS telecasts.”
