Fox lands U.S. Open

 

Fox Sports is in as the broadcast partner for the U.S. Open starting in 2015. Johnny Miller appears to be out. In a surprising announcement Wednesday, the U.S. Golf Association said it has signed a 12-year multimedia deal with Fox network and Fox Sports 1 to be the domestic broadcast partner for the Open and other USGA championships. NBC Sports had been televising the Open since 1995, with Miller its shoot-from-hip analyst who became as much of the show as the golf. “It was a big bummer,” Miller told the Associated Press. The first Open for Fox will be from Chambers Bay outside Seattle. Financial terms were not disclosed. – AP
