The deal to keep the Ryder Cup at NBC comes just two months after the net lost the U.S. Open to Fox beginning in '15. However, NBC Sports Group Chair Mark Lazarus said the impending loss of that tent-post event did not factor into the extension with the PGA of America.

"We certainly respected the Presidents Cup last week," he said.
