Jim Nantz, who will anchor the broadcast alongside analyst Lanny Wadkins for the fourth and final major of the year, admits he puts more effort and attention into his preparation for majors than regular golf tournaments.
As he puts it, I live for these major championships.
Although the broadcasters had a chance to play the course at the Baltusrol Golf Club for fun and to get a better idea of how the course will play, Nantz says he didnt take advantage of it and for good reason.
He jokes, It wouldnt do me any help. I wouldnt be hitting the ball anywhere near where the players hit theirs.
The final two rounds of the golf championship will air Saturday (Aug. 13) and Sunday on CBS.
