NBC Gets US Open As Fox Bails

Multiple sources told the Associated Press Sunday Night that the deal began to take shape this month, especially with the U.S. Open being moved to September during the opening month of the NFL. One person said Fox was contemplating moving the U.S. Open to FS1, an idea that was rebuffed by Mike Davis, the CEO of the USGA. That led to deeper conversations about the contract and how it could be resolved.
