Report: Joe Buck and Greg Norman to call 2015 US Open
A pretty interesting two-man broadcast crew will headline the 2015 US Open at Chambers Bay for Fox Sports.
The 2014 US Open at Pinehurst will be the last US Open broadcast by NBC as Fox Sports will take over in 2015.
And now we have the first two of what will eventually be a team of broadcasters for the event. They're two names that might surprise you.
According to Sports Business Daily Joe Buck and Greg Norman will host the festivities.
"Joe Buck and Greg Norman will be Fox Sports' top on-air voices when the network debuts its golf coverage next year, according to several sources. The two will be set up in the 18th green tower at the '15 U.S. Open, when the event will be held at Chambers Bay outside Seattle."
I'm probably in the minority in that I like Buck and I think he'll be fine -- I'm less sure about Norman. And is this really going to be the first tournament these two call together?
Wouldn't that be like throwing a 20-year-old rookie golfer into his first Masters and saying "good luck."
Oh, well, yeah.
As Ed Sherman points out here it would be incredible to hear Gus Johnson call a hole-in-one. Ohhhh, ohhhhh, it's headed for the cup, ohhhhhh [passes out].
