World Golf Hall of Fame member Davis Love III will join CBS Sports full-time as an analyst for its golf coverage, the network announced Tuesday.
“Davis is one of the most accomplished and respected players in the game of golf,” said Sean McManus, Chairman, CBS Sports. “With his playing experience, reputation and relationships across the golf community, he brings a unique perspective and insight that will enhance our broadcasts. Davis is the perfect fit for CBS, and we look forward to him making the best broadcast team in golf even better.”
Love will make his CBS Sports debut on the weekend of the Farmers Insurance Open. He said he will still play “select events” on the PGA TOUR and PGA TOUR Champions, but his focus is shifting to this new endeavor.
“I have long considered CBS Sports the gold standard in golf coverage,” said Love. “Whether playing or coaching, I have always loved the team aspect of golf, and I am thrilled to now be a member of the best team in television.”
Love owns 21 PGA TOUR titles, including two PLAYERS Championships and the 1997 PGA Championship. Along with his play on the course, Love has consistently been honored for his demeanor off it, winning the PGA TOUR’s Payne Stewart Award in 2008, the USGA’s Bob Jones Award in 2013 and the Jim Murray Award in 2016. That honor is presented by the Golf Writers Association of America each year to the golfer who best cooperates with the media. He also has been elected by his fellow players to the PGA TOUR policy board four times.
