Sky Are Pulling Out All The Stops With Their First Ever Open

Sky Are Pulling Out All The Stops With Their First Ever Open
By Conor O'Leary Updated

In a move not too dissimilar to TV3's coup of Joey Barton during Euro 2016 - Sky Sports have brought injured golfer Ian Poulter into the commentary booth for the Open.

It's the first time that the Open will be on Sky, and Sky have made the exciting move to bring Poulter in for his first exposure as a commentator. The always entertaining, and sometimes controversial Englishman will bring a lot of passion to the booth - and hopefully ease the pain of the golf not being shown on BBC.

Poulter, for his part, was in great form about the move:

At least this time viewers will probably only be able to see my top half so nobody will care what trousers I am wearing!

For those who miss the voices of Ken Brown and Peter Alliss, they will have a highlights package on tonight from 8pm.
