Two weeks after it was revealed Sky Sports lost coverage of the PGA Championship, now rumours are circulating that BT Sport are in talks for coverage of The Masters.

The BBC has since taken Sky’s coverage of the PGA Championship and, with BT stepping on toes to take further major coverage away, Sky’s hold on golf’s biggest events seems to be weakening further.

Sky Sports has broadcast the first major of the year from Augusta since 2011, with the BBC also covering the final two rounds live. However, The Telegraph are now reporting that Sky’s agreement with The Masters organisers is under pressure due to finances.

BT Sport currently offer no coverage of golf but, with talks supposedly underway, what better way to start than arguably golf’s staple attraction.
