On Sunday, December 25 at 2:30 p.m. ET, NBC will air an hour-long special titled PGA TOUR 2016: Must-See Moments of the Year sponsored by Myrbetriq® (mirabegron) that examines all the incredible moments, biggest events, and breakout stars of the 2015-2016 PGA TOUR season, as well as the early storylines from the 2016-17 campaign.
The impact of the late Arnold Palmer on the game of golf is immeasurable, and the NBC Sports special added a commemorative piece looking back on the life and accomplishments of The King.
PGA TOUR 2016: Must-See Moments of the Year sponsored by Myrbetriq® (mirabegron) which was produced by PGA TOUR Entertainment, will chronicle the dominant seasons of both Dustin Johnson and Jason Day. Johnson broke through for his first major championship at the U.S. Open, then recorded two more victories on the way to the best season of his career. Day, meanwhile, continued his stellar play from 2015 and captured three more victories this season, including a commanding wire-to-wire win at THE PLAYERS Championship.
The special will also dive into the unique relationship between Day and Tiger Woods. Growing up idolizing Woods, the Aussie has become friends with the 79-time PGA TOUR winner, and often goes to him for advice. That friendship has been a key factor in Day establishing himself firmly as the number one player in the world in 2016.
In a season of firsts, PGA TOUR 2016: Must-See Moments of the Year sponsored by Myrbetriq® (mirabegron) will put Jim Furyk’s historic 58 into perspective, while also reflecting on the four most recent first time major champions, and the 16 first-time winners, the most since 2002.
In addition, the show will document the recovery efforts in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia and Baton Rouge, Louisiana as Bubba Watson and Smylie Kaufman assist those communities affected by devastating flooding in 2016.
The special will also relive the drama of the 2016 FedExCup Playoffs that concluded in an epic playoff battle at the TOUR Championship, where Rory McIlroy claimed the FedExCup title.
