The final round of golf’s 2023 PGA Championship pulled in 4.52 million viewers on CBS, the lowest total since 2008.


  • Final round viewership was down 14 per cent from last year’s PGA Championship
  • 2023 tournament attracted a peak audience of 6.67 million
  • This year’s final round was the first since 2019 to not reach five million viewers


Viewership for the PGA Championship’s final round was lower than the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) playoff game staged on the same day. However, the golf major did draw a larger audience than the Stanley Cup conference final on ABC played at a similar timeslot, which managed 1.62 million viewers.

Coming next:

The US Open tees off on 15th June, with broadcaster NBC hoping not to experience a similar decline in viewership.
