For the 62nd consecutive year, CBS Sports will air The Masters, the year’s first major and perhaps its preeminent tournament, live from Augusta in April. It will also carry the PGA Championship, the season’s final major, live from Quail Hollow in August. Other highlights include the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the FedEx St. Jude Classic, the Travelers Championship and The Northern Trust.
The full schedule, including tournaments and golf specials, will amount to over 155 hours of coverage.
The broadcast team for events remains the same, with Jim Nantz, now in his 32nd year, anchoring the coverage from the 18th tower alongside lead analyst Nick Faldo, winner of six majors and 40+ tournaments. Ian Baker-Finch and Gary McCord will weigh in from the 17th and 16 holes respectively, with Peter Kostis and Dottie Pepper reporting from the course.
All CBS Sports coverage will be available for streaming throughout the United States on the CBS All-Access subscription service with additional coverage through CBSSports.com and the CBSSports app.
