What is featured-hole coverage?
Generally speaking, featured-hole coverage shows different camera angles of players on certain holes. The featured-hole coverage will happen simultaneously with the live broadcasts on CBS or NBC.
Back in March, the PGA Tour finalized an agreement that made ESPN+ the new home of the PGA Tour Live in 2022. The deal will bring “multiple live content channels nearly every week of the FedExCup season.”
