The Open for Sky

Wow what a scoop for sky sports1

The Open Championship will be shown exclusively on Sky Television from 2017.

This is a great scoop for Sky, who  have put so much technology into their Golf coverage over the past few years and things can only get better.

I think their Ball Tracker is an absolute winner, it gives the viewer a great deal of information as to the flight of the ball, the shape of the shot, and  if it is a wayward shot you’ve got guys like Butch Harmon and Simon Holmes showing exactly why the shot went awry with their swing analysis.

Will miss the voice of golf Mr Peter Alliss  but Ewen Murray does a great job along with other co commentators Bruce Critchley,Howard Clark and Richard Boxall, and with Wayne Riley’s input out on the course all in all a great team of very knowledgeable personnel.
