Former CBS Golf Analyst Peter Kostis Blasts Charity Skins Game
Former CBS Golf analyst Peter Kostis took to Twitter to blast the TaylorMade Driving Relief Charity Skins Game that took place at Seminole Golf Club in Florida on Sunday.
The match saw Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson edge Rickie Fowler and Matt Wolff in extra holes.
“The most entertaining part of this show are the texts and DM messages from my friends,” tweeted Kostis.
A major caveat of McIlroy and Johnson’s win was that it came in a closest to the pin contest on the final hole, not a traditional playoff.
“I wonder what the people who bet on a particular team to win are thinking about this last hole?,” added Kostis.
The match raised more than $5.5 million for Covid-19 relief.
Kostis was a golf broadcaster for more than 30-years, mostly with CBS.
Back in October, Kostis, along with Gary McCord, was fired from the network and replace by Davis Love III and Frank Nobilo, formerly of Golf Channel.
“The Tour wants more control over what’s being said. I think they want more cheerleaders on the telecast,” Kostis told the No Laying Up podcast.
According to Golf.com, Kostis has received few answers from the network about his departure.
