CBS Sports kicks off its 66th consecutive year televising the PGA TOUR next week, featuring Trevor Immelman as new lead analyst and the most comprehensive golf lineup in network television once again with multiplatform coverage of 23 PGA TOUR events in 2023 originating from four countries across the CBS Television Network and Paramount+.
The GOLF ON CBS schedule will culminate in August with weekend coverage of the PGA TOUR’s entire FedExCup Playoffs for the very first time, and The CBS Television Network in 2023 also will be the broadcast home for 11 of the 17 designated PGA TOUR events.
CBS Sports’ schedule gets underway at the Farmers Insurance Open from Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, Calif., with a special Saturday final-round conclusion. The third round on Friday, Jan. 27 (5:00-8:00 PM, ET) and final round on Saturday, Jan. 28 (4:30-8:00 PM, ET), will be broadcast on the CBS Television Network and streamed live on Paramount+.
Jim Nantz will anchor the Network’s coverage, beginning with the Farmers Insurance Open, which he’ll call live from the site of the AFC Championship game. Immelman – 2008 Masters champion and captain of the 2022 Presidents Cup International team – will make his debut as CBS Sports’ new lead golf analyst. Ian Baker-Finch and Frank Nobilo will join Nantz and Immelman to provide analysis from the Super Tower throughout the season. Lead on-course reporter Dottie Pepper, along with Mark Immelman and Colt Knost will offer perspective from inside the ropes and Amanda Renner will provide reports and conduct interviews. Andrew Catalon also will host select CBS broadcasts.
In collaboration with the PGA TOUR, CBS Sports in 2023 will continue to bring viewers closer to the competition and players, including through the use of innovative camera technologies as well as graphic enhancements to the constant leaderboard. Integrated player stats and swing data as well as virtual overlays will be utilized regularly within live coverage, and the Network’s “Eye on the Course” commercial break format will allow viewers to continue following the action. CBS Sports also will expand its popular “on-course set” configuration featuring Renner and Knost, offering viewers a unique perspective for third round coverage at a handful of events.
