The PGA Tour and Twitter announced a renewal and expansion of their livestreaming agreement.

Nearly 140 hours of live competition from 28 golf tournaments during the 2018-19 PGA Tour season will be livestreamed on Twitter free-of-charge via the PGA Tour Live over-the-top subscription video offering.

Under terms of the new pact, the first 60 to 90 minutes of all four rounds of tournaments will be livestreamed on Twitter, brining Saturday- and Sunday-morning coverage to the social network for the first time.

Twitter and the PGA Tour announced a renewal of their initial livestreaming pact in September 2017, encompassing Thursday- and Friday-morning coverage of more than 70 hours of live golf competition from 31 tournaments during the 2017-18 PGA Tour season.
