Nick Faldo will elevate CBS golf coverage
NBC is the best simply by having Johnny Miller. Faldo will give CBS some color it needs – though I’m not as big a critic of departed Lanny Wadkins as many – but it’s unlikely he’ll be as willing to be as controversial as Miller. Faldo had to seriously convince CBS that his broadcasting will take preference over his golf, and he did that by promising to work The masters instead of play, for one thing.
“I think that shows my commitment to the broadcasting world that I view this as a fabulous opprtunity for me…,” Faldo said at a press conference.
Faldo said he is sacrificing much of his playing career for the job.
“It will seriously curtail my playing career, as you know I turn 50 in July,” he said. “I will play the British Open. I will play our British Seniors the week after. And then obviously I will do my best to where I feel I’m capable of playing on the Champions Tour. So my playing days aren’t completely over.”

We agree on Miller: he is a great golf commentator. He's often impugned unfairly, but he is more likely than the others to tell it like it is and his knowledge of golf is nonpareil.
If you dislike Miller as much as I, watch his Wonderful World match with Jack Nicklaus when he shot 81... It is absolutely great. Would love to hear the negative three do a play by play on that match...
Tim... I can't believe you aren't rolling on Golf Channel's "Making the Cut".
Shove her down our throats some more!!! WHY???
Miller knows ppl expect him to be critical.
And he is giving them what the audience wants.
My problem with Miller is that his facts
check is rather bad and often times baseless.
