First TV Deal Roundups

Doug Ferguson provides an overview of the deal.

John Hawkins in this week's Golf World had the news on ESPN pulling out before today's announcement, and how the Tour admirably refused to budge on ESPN's desire for marquee tee times, which would have been a ridiculous situation.  Hawkins also weighs the move to The Golf Channel and whether it will be similar to the Champions Tour's move there.

Gene Yasuda calls the loss of ESPN a "significant and unexpected blow." 

I've started a thread on the TV deal playing off of Dan G.'s post from last week.  Curious what everyone thinks.
