Gary McCord joined CBS Sports in 1986 as an analyst for the Network's golf coverage. He and David Feherty hosted CBS Sports' offbeat, critically-acclaimed LATE NIGHT highlight shows for early-round coverage of several PGA TOUR events from 1999- 2006. His insight stems from being a PGA TOUR regular from 1973-1986 and now a successful Champions Tour player. He recorded two victories in 1999 (Toshiba Senior Classic and Ingersoll-Rand Senior Tour Championship). His best-ever finishes on the PGA TOUR came at the 1975 and 1977 Greater Milwaukee Open when he finished second both times. In 1984, McCord was the PGA TOUR's leading putter. He also won the Ben Hogan Gateway Open in 1991.

He appeared as himself--and served as the technical director for the 1996 Kevin Costner hit movie Tin Cup. McCord, along with Feherty, provide commentary for the EA Sports video game, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR.
