Pressel Joins Analyst Brad Faxon and Play-by-Play Announcer Shane Bacon in the Booth
Los Angeles – FOX Sports’ 2019 USGA coverage tees off with the third round of the 2nd U.S. Senior Women’s Open Championship on Saturday, May 18 at 3:00 PM. ET on FS1. Coverage continues on Sunday, May 19 with final round action airing from 3:00 to 5:00 PM ET on FS1 from Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club in Southern Pines, N.C.
FOX Sports mainstays analyst Brad Faxon and Shane Bacon anchor the booth, in addition to rules analyst David Fay and on-course reporters Nicole Castrale and Brett Quigley. The crew is joined by LPGA major winner Morgan Pressel, who provides insight and analysis alongside Faxon and Bacon throughout the weekend. Pressel is no stranger to the broadcast booth, having previously served as an analyst in FOX Sports’ digital coverage of the 115th U.S. Open Championship at Chambers Bay. She is also familiar with Pine Needles, having played the course in the 2001 U.S. Women’s Open at just twelve years old, the youngest qualifier ever at the time.
Pressel is the third youngest player to ever win an LPGA major tournament with her victory at the Kraft Nabisco Championship in 2007. An active member of the LPGA Tour, she also won the 2008 Kapalua LPGA Classic and has 60 career top-10 finishes. As an amateur, she tied for second at the 2005 U.S. Women’s Open, and later that same year won the U.S. Women’s Amateur. In just a few weeks she will compete in the 74th U.S. Women’s Open Championship at the Country Club of Charleston in Charleston, S.C.
