Ratings watch: U.S. Senior Open, World Cup final lead the way

by Mel Bracht Published: July 15, 2014

The final round of the U.S. Senior Open tied the World Cup final for English-speaking broadcasts Sunday afternoon with a 5.1 rating in Oklahoma City. Ratings for the Spanish-speaking Univision broadcast were not available and likely would have given the World Cup a larger rating. The first two rounds of the U.S. Senior Open had ratings of 1.9 and 1.1, respectively, on ESPN2. ESPN's Home Run Derby telecast Monday night managed only a 1.6.
