The voice of the Masters is here to stay.

Jim Nantz spoke with Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch recently about his late-career plans. In short, the 56-year-old veteran CBS broadcaster wants to call many, many more Masters.

“My 50th Masters would be April 8, 2035,” Nantz told SI. “So I thought that would be the day I retire.”

Not so fast. The 100th Masters tournament will take place the year after Nantz’s special 50th broadcast from Augusta National.

So could he make it to 2036? It’s certainly possible.

“I would be 76 years old,” he said. “But there are broadcasters working at that age and even older.”
