I’m not sure if there’s a lot of overlap between drone enthusiasts and golf fans or players but either way, it is good to hear that the 2020 PGA Championship will include drones, fly cams, and other innovative remote and on-course tech to bring you the best viewing experience possible.
2020 PGA Championship broadcast will include drones
Since there will not be any fans present at the 102nd PGA Championship at Harding Park due to the coronavirus pandemic, the PGA will use drones, fly cams, and other innovative remote and on-course tech to bring you the best viewing experience possible.
CBS will use a variety of innovative technologies to cover the only major golf championship of the 2019-20 PGA Tour season. Live footage from drones and fly cams will be used during the competition to get the viewers as close to the action as possible.
The best part? With the PGA Championship emanating from San Francisco, we’ll get to see all of this in primetime as Round 3 on Saturday, Aug. 8 will air from 4-10 p.m. ET and the final round will air on Sunday, Aug. 9 from 3-9 p.m ET, reports CBS Sports.
