LPGA Star Morgan Pressel Joins NBC Sports
LPGA Tour star Morgan Pressel is joining the NBC Sports/Golf Channel broadcast team, the company announced in a press release Tuesday.
“I’m excited to join the NBC Sports and GOLF Channel family in a greater capacity this year, alongside my competitive playing schedule on the LPGA Tour. It is humbling for me that NBC has given me the opportunity to build on my experience in this area of our game and to learn from some of the best people in the business in the process. I can’t wait to get started,” said Pressel.
Pressel will make her 2021 debut this week at the LPGA Drive On Championship.
Other tournaments that she is scheduled to be behind a mic for are the U.S. Women’s Open, Amundi Evian Championship, Solheim Cup, and the PGA TOUR’s Honda Classic.
Pressel, a two-time Tour winner and major champion will also continue her own competitive career as well.
Owning one of the most decorated careers in women’s amateur golf history, Pressel became the then-youngest player to ever qualify for the U.S. Women’s Open in 2001 at age 12.
On the LPGA Tour, she became the then-youngest-ever winner of a modern major championship when she won the 2007 ANA Inspiration (formerly the Kraft Nabisco Championship) at age 18.
Pressel is a six-time member of Team USA at the Solheim Cup and owns two career LPGA Tour victories.
Pressel brings prior on-air experience to her role with GOLF Channel and NBC.
In addition to serving as a guest on-course reporter for LPGA Tour coverage on GOLF Channel, Pressel has been an analyst for the U.S. Senior Women’s Open as well as digital coverage of the U.S. Open for FOX Sports.
