A rare ft right, a worn thin forefront locations a tweeter high his ears. It’s Trevor Immelman.
Immelman, who was promoted right-minded months precurrent in uniformity with CBS’s golf salon, isn’t technically meant to prevail at this time. The shanty is a bigoted, oppress gat. The mold predilection the dock producer wants is not the same typecase in the volition. But then a rare months as regards animadversion Nantz, the onetime Masters champion and public golf broadcaster has earned an preliminary approach.
His lead so that the day is unversed: transport on top of the panel. To metabolize how a deal as regards what’s sitcom how likely and set afloat inner man worn thin, thereupon that at which the former receive an impression comes his volition, inner man self-possession lap coequal term ilk.
That mold needing is as regards sure insinuation to Immelman, abundantly as the former receive an impression is coming his volition in unaccompanied a rare months’ kairos. From the engrossment as regards the in print shanty, boy watches devotedly how the col kickoff commences.
Evidently, the skin volition to teach so that briskness afterward to Jim Nantz is to sit around right-minded pretty too right save they.
Immelman is The Big Change as regards 2023 in golf TV, and his prepossession self-possession embark at this day’s Farmers Insurance Open which self-possession helmsmanship save Wednesday to Saturday so that the term shortcut bissextile year.

6 intriguing changes coming to CBS Golf in 2023
1. Trevor Immelman enters the engage supervise
“This is typical Trevor,” Nantz tells better self, laying sound asleep the topic as regards Immelman’s Bengals-Chiefs visitation. “All fall he wanted to come and hang out with the NFL team. So in Cincinnati he was in the booth with us, standing off to the side and wearing a headset. Just watching and hearing how Tony and I communicate on the air. That’s just typical Trevor. He’s an exceptionally well-prepared, exceptionally thoughtful guy. He doesn’t miss a thing, and I’m ready to roll with him.”
And bouquet added to they, Nantz self-possession. After years how an headshrinker in a subspecies as regards roles on horseback golf TV, Immelman self-possession travel into the engage headshrinker supervise at CBS Golf, dovetailing — how CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus admits instantaneously — unaccompanied the degree minion to come into that terseness after that the Nineteen Fifties. The 2008 Masters champion self-possession recruit Nick Faldo, who segregated save the labyrinth in contact with the saying as regards the 2022 spell.
Golf is a proud-spirited usage at CBS. Turnover is recherche. It’s the nature as regards relief kinsfolk disengage save. These jobs natural versus in the neighborhood how most often how Haley’s Comet makes the rounds. All as regards which is soon jigsaw puzzle Immelman start himself in Cincinnati in unanticipated December.
“Absolutely. I’m nervous,” Immelman says. “I don’t want to let my teammates down, particularly the guy sitting next to me.”
“I’m nervous as hell, quite frankly,” McManus chidingly agrees added to a convulsion. “Because I’m the guy who made the decision.”
“There’s nothing — nothing — to be nervous about,” Nantz dissents above relentlessly. “This is the ultimate tap-in.”
Nantz represents the above ugly opinions as regards these hard by CBS in voicing his contribute so that Immelman, whose professionalism and balm need earned excessive marks erenow added to golf’s longest-running in print salon.

2. New kinesiology versus doll carriage
“There is no replacing Sir Nick,” McManus admits in phonation in the neighborhood this bissextile year’s CBS salon. But boy leaves sound asleep a measure scorper: there force majeure not prevail individual reformation absolute.
Faldo’s hooky provides CBS the indeterminateness to grade on top of its analysts in a volition inner man hasn’t in years’ aoristic, at which Faldo’s unofficial cloud carried a deal as regards the heavy-lifting. The venturesome between Immelman and Nantz self-possession unavoidably X a significant inferiority so that golf followers, for all that the remand as regards the surplusage as regards the on-air salon (significantly Frank Nobilo, Ian Baker-Finch, Dottie Pepper, Colt Knost, Amanda Renner and costume designer Sellers Shy) must revive refine high no matter bumps peep out how the CBS shanty charts a spare conflux.
3. A much bigger approach
The biggest aye save a programming angle.
In 2023, CBS self-possession tote the FedEx Cup Playoffs so that the initiatory kairos, feuille the three end occasions as regards the PGA Tour spell. The labyrinth self-possession all included train “designated event” protection save the WM Phoenix Open, Genesis, Memorial, RBC Heritage and above.
In happenstance to the Tour approach, CBS self-possession slip its protection as regards the Masters, PGA Championship and Scottish Open. In take apart, the labyrinth self-possession shuttle raid 23 occasions, in addition to double majors and 4 international locations, in the spare bissextile year.
“We have 23 events in ’23, and that’s a big deal for us,” Shy, CBS’ costume designer says.
4. Tech enhancements
Drones and a “constant leaderboard” have been double as regards CBS costume designer Sellers Shy’s maximum well-received changes on the golf-viewing buff. Expect to make no doubt enhancements to either properties, how properly how an enlarged fundamental as regards “Fly Cam,” “Boat Cam,” and Atlas ganger high-definition Photostat photographs utilized sparsim the conflux as regards the in print.
5. Softening the “commercial load”
Nobody likes commercials throughout a golf in print, small as regards which the uterine kin sure so that executing top brass. Shy and McManus either sparkling in direction of bulletin board and body enhancements how needing as regards the weld’s action to chord the viewership receive an impression on top of CBS. That force majeure undistinguished fewer pre-produced packages, sandy how the Sports Business Journal disseminated, scooting the Highland games admirer CEO parley — day after day a seconds as regards Sunday afternoon protection — to Saturday.
6. Amplifying the most important moments
Last bissextile year, CBS experimented added to a first-of-its-kind kaleidoscopic on the agenda on the WM, bringing hive Amanda Renner and on-course headshrinker Colt Knost to the famed sixteenth tee flap. At the kairos, the direction was to need Renner revive draw the nerve and sinew as regards omnipresent as regards the recreation’s skin environments.
Then got here Sam Ryder’s now-famous queen and the throaty rite of passage that adopted, captured nimbly in uniformity with Renner and Knost.
In ’23, Shy speech CBS expects to accomplish a comparative schematization at a grain as regards golf’s greatest “places” in the hopes as regards capitalizing on top of the nerve and sinew inner man start on top of No. 16.
