As part of a new 11-year agreement, the PGA Championship will remain with CBS Sports and pick up a powerful partner in ESPN for weekday rounds beginning in 2020, it was announced Wednesday.

The networks will combine to deliver 175 hours of coverage across broadcast, cable and digital platforms.

Financial terms of the deal announced Wednesday were not disclosed, though it was clear the PGA Championship is more attractive held in May than in August.

The agreement starts in 2020, when the PGA Championship is played at Harding Park in San Francisco. CBS Sports will show an additional hour on Saturday and Sunday. ESPN plans to use its direct-to-consumer ESPN+ to provide coverage of all 72 holes.

"This agreement is going to be great for golf fans and is significant for ESPN and ESPN+," ESPN executive vice president Burke Magnus said. "The PGA will bolster ESPN's diverse collection of big events and deliver another world-class competition to the ESPN+ platform and its growing audience. We look forward to working with the PGA of America to help increase the sport's popularity."

The deal also gives CBS and ESPN, which broadcast the Masters, the first two majors of the year.

The PGA Championship made its cable television debut with ESPN in 1982 and '83 and again was broadcast by the network from 1985-90.

"For nearly a half-century, CBS Sports has been a vital member of the PGA of America extended family while delivering our major championship to golf fans across the country," PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh said. "We are also thrilled to partner with ESPN and connect with sports fans through the reach of the ESPN networks.

"The PGA is a major synonymous with historic moments that resonate with golf fans everywhere. As we move this iconic championship to May, we are extremely excited that CBS and ESPN will present the highest quality product with the state-of-the-art technology through a broadcast team that shares our mission to grow the sport of golf."

ESPN+ will also carry practice round coverage on the three days leading up to the tournament as well as news conferences and a live feed from the driving range.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Great news. Could never figure out why TNT's Thu/Fri coverage started at 1 PM.

From the title it seems like the 2020 event is going to take 11 years

I thought maybe Deschambeau was in every group

A tradition like no other.

They better plan for filler pieces during the rain delays at Bethpage in mid-May.

The look back at Tiger's charge at last year's PGA is already cued up in the production truck.

swing is irrelevant, score is everything

just say NO.... to practice swings

That was my first thought too. And isn't copying and pasting news articles an infringement of copyright (just don't want the forum owners to get in trouble)

The same charge Koepka held off to get the win and his name on the trophy.

From a UK perspective, all this had made me do is wonder what will happen with the coverage over here. The last two years have been an absolute shambles.

Just because I enjoy when this forum has a meltdown, I want Stephen A Smith in the tower calling the action with Gary McCord.

As much as I hate Gary McCord (donít really watch any Stephen A, but he sucks too), this would be absolutely hilarious.

I'd rather have CBS instead of Fox. So at least they got that right.

That's a lot of Van Pelt.  Agreed, watching Stephen A. pretend to be pissed off about something golf related would be hilarious.
