NBC SPORTS TO DEBUT “BAGCAM” WITH JUSTIN THOMAS AT PGA TOUR VALSPAR CHAMPIONSHIP THIS WEEK
New Camera Will Provide 360-Degree Perspective From Atop Justin Thomas’ Golf Bag Friday Afternoon on GOLF Channel and Peacock
STAMFORD, Conn. – March 16, 2023 – Viewers will see what the world looks like from the perspective of Justin Thomas’ 7-iron this week when NBC Sports debuts “BagCam” during its coverage of the PGA TOUR Valspar Championship at the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort.
BagCam will sit within and look out from atop Justin Thomas’ golf bag during holes 17-18 on Friday afternoon on GOLF Channel and Peacock, bringing viewers closer to the action than ever before.
BagCam has the ability to provide a 360-degree perspective as the audience joins Justin Thomas and caddie Jim “Bones” Mackay for a variety of moments and interactions within the round, whether it’s on the tee, walking between shots or a decision on what club to hit for an approach shot.
“We are always exploring ways to innovate within our golf coverage while not disrupting or interfering with what’s happening on the course,” said Tommy Roy, Lead Producer for NBC Sports’ golf coverage. “BagCam will provide a unique perspective for the viewers at home, and we thank Justin Thomas and Bones for letting us join them on Friday afternoon on GOLF Channel and Peacock.”
NBC Sports presents live coverage of the Valspar Championship today and Friday at 2 p.m. ET on GOLF Channel and Peacock. Coverage on the weekend begins at 1 p.m. ET on GOLF Channel and Peacock before transitioning to NBC and Peacock on both days.
