What About Bob?

The PGA Tour's Players Championship happened over the weekend here in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

This is one of the premier events for Professional Golf and one that broadcast partner NBC devotes a lot of time to.

Normally the broadcast opens with Bob Costas setting the stage and then handing off the coverage to Dan Hicks and Johnny Miller. Costas would then handle the players interviews and set up pre-packaged stories.

But, this year there was no Bob.

Former Good Morning America Anchor Josh Elliott was in the chair and did all the parts of the broadcast that Costas normally did. 

When NBC Sports hired Elliott, rumors started swirling that he would replace Costas. NBC denied that, but this weekend Elliott was in the same chair that Costas sat in for years and Bob was nowhere to be seen.
