Head of Sport for the Seven Network, Saul Shtein, commented: “We are delighted to be extending our commitment to golf. Seven was the home of the Australian Masters for over twenty years through the height of the Greg Norman era. On the back of Adam Scott’s historic and memorable victory at Augusta in April it marks another exciting time for Australian golf and we look forward to broadcasting the event across Australia.

“We are also delighted to be broadcasting the Perth International given our strong links with the people of Western Australia through Channel Seven Perth and The West Australian.”

David Rollo, Vice President-Director of Golf, IMG Australia added: “Seven has a rich history of broadcasting world class sporting events and we could not be more delighted to enter into this long term partnership to showcase the Australian Masters and Perth International. Both events will attract 20 hours of live national coverage which will deliver a great outcome for our valued partners and all Australian golf fans.”

IMG Media will produce the broadcast for both events with overlay from Seven Sport under the direction of Saul Shtein.
