The US Open Championship is to remain on Sky Sports for at least the next five years.

A new deal agreed with the United States Golf Association (USGA) ensures Sky Sports retains one of the jewels in its golfing crown through to 2019.

The contract extension means Sky Sports viewers will be able to watch 35 championships during the five-year period, including women’s, senior and amateur events from the other side of the Atlantic.

British golfers have enjoyed great success in majors on American soil in recent years. Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell have won three of the last four US Opens.

Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports, said the tournament has provided "some unforgettable moments" for TV viewers in recent years.

"This announcement strengthens our long-term live golf schedule even further," he stated.

"Only on Sky Sports can viewers watch European golfers take on the best in the world in the US Open and we’re delighted to take our partnership with the USGA into its 26th year."

Sky Sports viewers will be able to watch coverage from more than 100 golf tournaments around the world in 2014.
