Fans will be able to watch the first two FedEx Cup Playoffs tournaments easier than ever before, as the PGA Tour has announced a new deal with multiple social networks.

PGA TOUR LIVE, a subscription service throughout most of the year, will be found streaming on both Facebook and Twitter for more than 14 hours during the opening rounds of this weekend’s The Barclays and next weekend’s Deutsche Bank Championship.

“Taking this new step with Twitter and Facebook Live will provide a free preview of premium PGA TOUR LIVE coverage for our fans around the world,” said Luis Goicouria, SVP of Digital Platforms and Media Strategy at the PGA Tour.

The social network integration will also include a fan vote on Twitter to elect which groups are covered.
