This or That: 8 questions with CBS Sports broadcaster Amanda Balionis

January 22, 2019

Amanda Balionis is a CBS Sports reporter. When she’s not roaming the sidelines during the NFL season, you’ll usually find her at the latest PGA Tour stop breaking down the action and interviewing players. But in the February edition of GOLF magazine, we turned the tables and interviewed her with a handful of quick-hitters.

1. Coffee or tea?
Coffee. Black with two sweeteners. It’s the way to my heart.
2. Wine or beer?
Day-drinking: beer. Girls’ night: wine.
3. Twizzlers or Swedish Fish?
Swedish Fish.

Amanda Balionis interviews Tiger Woods at the 2018 PGA Championship.

4. Tin Cup or Caddyshack?
Tin Cup.
5. Tiger’s putting or DJ’s driving?
DJ’s driving. Imagine guys’ reactions on the first tee of the charity events I play in!
6. Cart or caddie?
Caddie. I have a newfound love for walking 18, but it must be 65-plus and sunny. (Since moving to California, I’m very high-maintenance.)
7. Masters or U.S. Open win?
Masters.
8. McCord’s mustache or Feherty’s facial hair?
McCord’s mustache immediately puts me in a good mood every time.
