For years, Augusta National, home of the Masters would not allow a woman to be a member of their club.
Next year, a woman will be broadcasting the Masters on CBS.
Former LPGA player Dottie Pepper has been hired by CBS Sports as an on-course reporter and analyst for the CBS's golf coverage beginning in 2016.
The announcement was made today by Sean McManus, Chairman, CBS Sports.
“Dottie is one of the most respected and insightful analysts in golf,” said McManus. “She has played and covered the sport at its highest levels and her reputation, contacts and relationships within the game are outstanding. We have the strongest ensemble of voices in golf, and the addition of Dottie to our team makes us even stronger and deeper.”
“I am excited to join CBS Sports and return to covering live golf full time,” said Pepper. “As an analyst you want to cover your sport at the highest level and being a part of the CBS Sports golf team with the strongest and best schedule in golf, including two majors, affords me the opportunity to do just that.”
Pepper has perviously worked golf coverage for both NBC and ESPN and is excellent at her craft.
They made a great choice in Pepper as a replacement.
