NORTON, Mass., Sept. 1 (UPI) -- The PGA Tour has new television deals with CBS and NBC, Commissioner Tim Finchem announced Thursday at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

The new 9-year pacts will both run from 2013 through the 2021 season. Current agreements with both networks expire at the end of 2012.
