FOX SPORTS TEES UP FAXON & FAY FOR 2015 USGA CHAMPIONSHIPS COVERAGE TEAM

New York -- FOX Sports announced today the addition of more firepower to its already potent 2015 USGA Championships arsenal with the hiring of eight-time PGA TOUR winner Brad Faxon and former USGA executive director David Fay as analysts alongside host Joe Buck, analyst Greg Norman and reporter/host Holly Sonders.

Faxon serves as lead studio analyst and hole announcer, while Fay contributes as rules analyst. The announcement was made today by John Entz, Executive Vice President, Production & Executive Producer, FOX Sports, and Mark Loomis, Coordinating Golf Producer, FOX Sports.

"Long-known for his smooth putting stroke, Brad's transition to broadcasting has been just as easy," Loomis said. "He still has great relationships with, and knowledge of, today's Tour players, and that insight will prove invaluable to our telecasts. David has been synonymous with the USGA, its Championships and history for decades, so adding him to our team was a no-brainer."

Faxon is a 29-year PGA TOUR veteran and winner of the 1993 Australian Open and 2005 Buick Championship. He represented the United States on two Ryder Cup teams, was one of the most successful players on the PGA TOUR in the 1990s and ranks 50th on the PGA TOUR Career Money List. Faxon also led the Tour in putting average in 1996, 1999, and 2000. In 2010, Faxon began working as a commentator for NBC's golf coverage, rapidly establishing himself as an entertaining and well-informed analyst.

Fay retired from the USGA in December 2010 after 21 years as its executive director. After his appointment in 1989, Fay quickly became one of the game's foremost leaders during its boom at the turn of the century. Renowned for his encyclopedic understanding of the Rules of Golf, the former caddie functioned as a rules expert for NBC's U.S. Open broadcasts. Also serving as chairman of the World Golf Foundation in 2008, Fay championed the effort throughout his career to bring the U.S. Open to public courses and established the "For the Good of the Game" grant program.

The United States Golf Association (USGA), which governs the game of golf worldwide with The R&A, and FOX, the No.1 network for sports television since 1997, announced a comprehensive multi-media agreement in August 2013 that makes FOX Sports and FOX Sports 1 the principal domestic media partners of the USGA and the U.S. Open, U.S. Women's Open and U.S. Senior Open Championships, as well as the USGA's national amateur championships and other live content, beginning in 2015. The landmark agreement brings premier major championship golf for the first time ever to FOX, home to the country's greatest sports events, including the World Series, Daytona 500, Super Bowl LI and 2018 and 2022 World Cup.
