ryder cup 2016

A week on Monday, Sky Sports 4 will become Sky Sports Ryder Cup to herald the arrival of the legendary golf tournament.

Sky will offer a mammoth 240 hours of coverage over 10 days. This will comprise live coverage, highlights, breakfast shows, archive material and Ryder Cup specials. All three days of the tournament – Friday September 30th to Sunday October 2nd – will be shown live, and will be simulcast on Sky Sports 1.

The opening ceremony will be available to non-Sky Sports customers courtesy of Sky Sports Mix, Sky's channel that offers select sporting action to all Sky customers. We're promised "a selection of support programming" including the breakfast show and a documentary on European captain Darren Clarke will also air on Sky Sports Mix.

The annual tournament pits the best golfers in Europe against those from the US. This year sees Europe chasing a seventh success in eight attempts.

Commentary will come from former European captains Colin Montgomerie and Paul McGinley, plus American golf coach Butch Harmon.

If you don't want to subscribe to Sky Sports, you can see all the action courtesy of a Now TV Sports Week Pass for £10.99. You can then watch through a web browser, on your phone or tablet, or on your TV via a Now TV Box or Now TV Smart Box.

"The Ryder Cup stands alongside the biggest sporting events in the world and it is only right that we have a channel on Sky Sports for our viewers to soak in the excitement it creates," said Jason Wessely, Sky Sports head of golf. "By offering fans ten days of Ryder Cup programming we hope to capture all of the history, passion and drama from what should be a boisterous American crowd and fantastic competition."
