Curtis Strange, the last man to win back-to-back U.S. Opens and a member of the Inaugural Class of the Virginia Golf Hall of Fame, will join Fox Sports’ broadcast team for its USGA broadcasts, starting with the 2016 U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club in Pennsylvania.
Strange signed a three-year contract with Fox Sports and will serve as an on-course reporter. Strange spent the last several years working with ESPN, and his final appearance for the network came at the 2016 Masters.
“I’m excited to have another opportunity,” Strange told Golfweek. “I didn’t know what was going to happen because all three teams (at networks that air golf) were locked up with solid announcers. I’m very fortunate to find a role and a role I’m very much looking forward to simply because you’re right there in the middle of the action.”
The 61-year-old Strange is a member of both the World Golf Hall of Fame and the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame. He won the U.S. Open in 1988 and 1989 and finished his career with 17 PGA Tour victories.
