The mouth-watering group featuring global superstars Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and reigning champion Justin Thomas will kick off the action on ELEVEN SPORTS on Thursday as the centenary edition of the PGA Championship gets underway.

 

Coverage on ELEVEN SPORTS will start at 13:30 BST with a special ‘On the Range’ segment LIVE from inside ropes of the Bellerive Country Club, where ELEVEN’s commentary team will analyse the players on the practice ground and preview the Championship.

 

At 14:23 BST, Justin Thomas will embark on his defence of the Wanamaker Trophy alongside Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy. The trio’s opening round will be shown live on ELEVEN SPORTS, before full coverage of the 2018 PGA Championship begins at 19:00 BST.

 

The selected group on day two will feature Jon Rahm, English hopeful Justin Rose, and Jordan Spieth who is gunning to become only the sixth person to win the career grand slam. Live coverage of this group will begin at 14:30 BST before full, live Championship coverage gets underway at 19:00 BST.

 

All four rounds will be exclusively live via a 7-day free trial on www.elevensports.uk and through the ELEVEN SPORTS iOS and Android apps (apps now available to download through the Apple Store and Google Play Store). The first two days will also be streamed live on ELEVEN SPORTS’ UK & Ireland Facebook Page.

 

ELEVEN SPORTS has also confirmed that 2014 Ryder Cup hero, Jamie Donaldson, will form part of the dynamic commentary team.

 

Donaldson joins recognisable faces from the world of golf, Dominik Holyer and Anna Whiteley, and online personality, amateur golfer and host of ‘Seb on Golf’ on YouTube, Seb Carmichael-Brown, who will provide a knowledgeable but youthful edge to ELEVEN’s coverage of the Championship.

 

“There are some fantastic narratives running through this year’s PGA Championship with the best players in the world lining up to take on each other and the course.
