The disharmony in the US team is always strange to me, it should be the other way around, they should all be on the same page, with the European team struggling to come together under one banner. I know the US is a pretty divided country but in other sports you dont see this kind of thing, not that Im aware of anyway, its only the golf team that seems to struggle with it. This year especially their individuals were far better than the Europeans but looking in from the outside it seems they couldnt put ego to one side and play as a team.
The BBC has aired it since 1963. In terms of Live coverage, this is the first time going all the way back to the mid '50s that there will be nothing whatsoever.
Since failing to get the rights for the Champions League again, and dumping supplemental sports like WWE and tennis, I'm guessing Sky had more money to play with this time and are committed to shoring up their major sports that link up to the 5 main Sky channels (Premier League, Football, F1, Cricket and Golf), with the absolute sporting dregs making up Action, Arena and Mix, which will be so devoid of content in 2020 that surely 1 will be dumped.
There are a lot of good deals with Sky Sports through NowTV though, so you should be able to watch The Masters Live for around £10 (1 week pass). I do prefer the BBC commentary/presentation, much like the F1 on C4.
