[email protected] quits @TheOpen coverage a year early - Sky Sports to broadcast next year at Royal Troon: http…

The BBC has binned its live coverage of The Open a year earlier than expected, the R&A has confirmed. The R&A, which runs the Open, was approached by the BBC to discuss getting released from the contract which would have seen the broadcasting company provide live coverage of the 145th Open at Royal Troon next year. Sky Sports has agreed to take on responsibility, and R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers said: "We are looking forward to world-class coverage of The Open and I know some fans will be disappointed. The relationship between The R&A and the BBC spans more than 60 years and we understand the challenging circumstances that the BBC is currently presented with." There will be no additional revenue received by The R&A in 2016 as a result of the new arrangement.
