Known for his humor and sharp wit, especially abroad, where he’s achieved cult status among international golf fans; Ken Brown joins FOX Sports’ coverage of the U.S. Open for the second straight year in 2017 from Erin Hills, Wisc.


As a former player and current broadcaster and writer, Brown is no stranger to the world of golf. During his professional career, which began in 1974, Brown won four times on the European Tour. He had his best season in 1978 at the age of 21, finishing fourth on the European Tour Order of Merit. Five years later achieved the last of his four top-10 finishes on the Order of Merit. Brown is also a five-time Ryder Cup competitor.

Soon after retiring from playing, Brown began his broadcasting career within the FOX family of networks at Sky Sports. He then moved to BBC, where he spent time as a TV golf commentator, analyst and writer. In 2016, Brown returned to FOX Sports’ U.S. Open coverage as an on-course reporter and analyst.
