Sky is dedicating Sky Sports 4 to the Ryder Cup this year, and will rename the channel Sky Sports Ryder Cup.

The name change will last from September 18 until October 2. After that, it will be called Sky Sports 4 again.

Over 14 days, Sky Sports Ryder Cup will show more than 330 hours of golf, including 36 hours of live coverage from Gleneagles.

It will be the tenth Ryder Cup to be shown on Sky.

Last year, Sky rebranded Sky Sports HD as Sky Sports Ashes, to celebrate England's home cricket series against Australia.

"We're dedicating a whole channel to the biggest event in golf, providing viewers with the complete Ryder Cup experience all in one place," Barney Francis, managing director of Sky Sports, said in a statement. "There will be nowhere better for sports fans to enjoy the passion, drama and excitement of this incredible event.

"We'll offer round-the-clock build up, the opening and closing ceremonies, and exclusive live coverage of all three days from Gleneagles. We're incredibly proud of our partnership with golf and it's fitting we mark our tenth Ryder Cup on Sky Sports with an entire channel. We can't wait."

Sky customers can also catch the action on Sky Go and Now TV.
