Fox Sports, under a 12-year deal with the United States Golf Association that begins in 2015, will gain the TV rights to the U.S. Open and other USGA tournaments. The agreement will replace current pacts with NBC Sports and ESPN. "We like big events, and the U.S. Open is a big event," said Randy Freer, co-president of Fox Sports. "It allows us to bring another group of viewers to our network."
