Brad Faxon, David Fay to join Fox Sports golf broadcasting team
PGA and Champions Tour veteran Brad Faxon will be joining Fox Sports for its golf broadcasts beginning in 2015.
According to Fox's announcement, Faxon's role will involve both studio time and reporting from the course. In addition, former USGA executive director David Fay will serve as a rules analyst.
"Long-known for his smooth putting stroke, Brad's transition to broadcasting has been just as easy," said Mark Loomis, Coordinating Golf Producer, Fox Sports. "He still has great relationships with, and knowledge of, today's Tour players, and that insight will prove invaluable to our telecasts. David has been synonymous with the USGA, its Championships and history for decades, so adding him to our team was a no-brainer."
Faxon accumulated eight victories over his long career on the PGA Tour. He previously worked as an analyst for NBC.
The additions of Faxon and Fay solidify a talented group for Fox that already includes Greg Norman, Joe Buck, and Holly Sonders. Fox will broadcast USGA championships starting in 2015.
