All five majors and the PBA Super Slam Cup will air live on FOX Broadcast Channel
RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Major championships are the focus of the 2023 Guaranteed Rate PBA Tour on FOX season. For the first time in PBA Tour history, all five majors will air live on network television, beginning with the U.S. Open on FOX Broadcast Channel in February. The PBA Tournament of Champions, PBA World Championship, USBC Masters and PBA Players Championship will also air live on FOX throughout the season.
All 2023 major champions will be entered into the PBA Super Slam Cup, which will air live on FOX in May. Plus, all majors and the Super Slam Cup will feature additional live televised coverage of match play rounds prior to the championship finals.
