NBC Sports Announces Commentary Team for NBC Universal’s Golf Coverage at Olympic Game Paris 2024

Brad Faxon, Johnson Wagner, Morgan Pressel and Mel Reid to Serve as Tournament Analysts, with Steve Sands, Grant Boone and Tom Abbott on Play-by-Play

STAMFORD, Conn. – June 10, 2024 – NBC Sports today announced its commentary teams for the men’s and women’s golf competitions to be held at Le Golf National in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines during NBCUniversal’s coverage of the Olympic Games Paris 2024 this summer.

Brad Faxon and Johnson Wagner will serve as tournament analysts for the men’s competition, while Morgan Pressel and Tokyo Olympian Mel Reid will serve as tournament analysts for the women’s competition.

Steve Sands, Grant Boone, and Tom Abbott will provide play-by-play commentary for both the men’s and women’s competitions. John Wood and Karen Stupples will serve as on-course commentators, while Rex Hoggard will provide reports.

Analysts Brandel Chamblee and Paige Mackenzie will lead studio coverage of the men’s and women’s golf competitions, which will be hosted by George Savaricas and Amy Rogers.

GOLF Channel and Peacock will be the home of NBCUniversal’s coverage of the Olympic men’s and women’s golf competitions.

With the Paris Olympics golf fields to be announced this month, current World No. 1 and 2024 Masters champion Scottie Scheffler is in position to lead Team USA on the men’s side. Last month’s PGA Championship winner Xander Schauffele currently ranks second to qualify for the men’s team as he looks to defend his Tokyo Olympic gold medal. Wyndham Clark, the 2023 U.S. Open champion, and two-time major champion Collin Morikawa are in position to round out the U.S. men’s team.

World No. 1 Nelly Korda looks to repeat as Olympic gold medalist after winning three years ago in Tokyo, and leads the rankings for U.S. women’s team with three weeks remaining in the women’s qualifying period. If no additional American moves into the top 15 in the Rolex Rankings in the next three weeks, two-time LPGA major champion Lilia Vu and two-time NCAA individual champion Rose Zhang would join Korda on the U.S. Women’s team.

In Paris this summer, the world’s greatest athletes will compete against the backdrop of one of the most beautiful cities in the world where the modern Olympic Games were conceived 130 years ago. This will be the third time Paris has hosted the Olympics (1900 and 1924), tying London for the most as a Summer Games host. Los Angeles (1932, 1984) will tie those two cities when it hosts the first Summer Games in the U.S. in 32 years in 2028.

The Paris organizers are reimagining the Games to make them more accessible to the public and to showcase their city to the world. In a first, competitions will be held amidst iconic Parisian landmarks – beach volleyball at the Eiffel Tower, equestrian at the Palace of Versailles, and urban sports at Place de la Concorde. The surfing competition will take place nearly 10,000 miles from Paris in Tahiti, a part of French Polynesia.

The NBC broadcast network and streaming service Peacock will be the company’s primary platforms for its coverage of the Olympic Games Paris 2024, scheduled for July 26-Aug. 11.
