Today it was announced that the U.S. Open will return to NBC Sports next month, with the 120th edition of the Championship at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, N.Y. on September 17-20.
Previously, the USGA made a media rights deal for its championships on NBCUniversal through 2026. For the 2020 U.S. Open, NBCUniversal will air nearly 45 hours of live primary coverage on NBC, GOLF Channel and Peacock, beginning Thursday, September 17.
“It is with great pride that NBC Sports welcomes the return of the U.S. Open to our portfolio in partnership with the USGA, to further elevate their slate of championships,” said Pete Bevacqua, president, NBC Sports Group. “Under a tight timeframe, our world-class production team is prepared to showcase the U.S. Open next month from famed Winged Foot Golf Club, capturing the drama of the world’s best vying for this year’s second major championship.”
Across each of the four rounds, Peacock will exclusively stream two hours of live U.S. Open coverage for free. U.S. Open content on Peacock also will include featured groups and featured holes coverage across all four rounds, with additional content elements being announced in the coming weeks. NBCUniversal’s coverage of the U.S. Women’s Open in December will also feature live programming on Peacock.
“The USGA is excited to be back in the NBCUniversal family, including GOLF Channel and NBC’s Peacock platform, in providing extensive coverage of the U.S. Open Championship,” said USGA CEO Mike Davis. “A talented and knowledgeable group of broadcasters, including several USGA champions, and an experienced production team, led by Tommy Roy, will provide in-depth perspective on the championship and help us celebrate the greatness of the U.S. Open and the players who compete in it.”
