Tiger Woods finally wins…we’re not kidding
Tiger Woods first victory… in five years came on Sunday, but he was not the only winner. That’s right, NBC did pretty well itself by seeing a rating boost of 206% compared to last year. The final round of the tournament was the highest-rated telecast in the history of the FedEx Cup playoffs.
It was also… the highest-rated PGA Tour telecast so far in 2018. Oh, well, excluding the four major championships, which include The Masters, the US Open, the British Open, and PGA Championship. To quantify the ratings, NBC’s coverage earned a 5.2 overnight rating. According to Nielson, this means 5.2% of households in the US were watching Tiger Woods’ win.
Despite his lack of recent success… Tiger Woods remains one of the most popular and most watched golfers in the world. Woods’ received 580 minutes of exposure during tournaments by mid-March which is more than double the average of the next ten golfers. So don’t worry – we haven’t forgotten about you, Tiger.
