CBS SPORTS’ “WEST COAST SWING” TRAVELS TO LOS ANGELES WITH
COVERAGE OF PGA TOUR’S NORTHERN TRUST OPEN ON FEB. 15-16
CBS Sports’ early-season coverage of the PGA TOUR’s “West Coast Swing” continues this weekend with a return to Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif. for live third and final-round coverage of the NORTHERN TRUST OPEN on Saturday, Feb. 15 (3:00-6:00 PM, ET) and Sunday, Feb. 16 (3:00-6:30 PM, ET), on the CBS Television Network.
Jim Nantz, now in his 29th year overall covering golf for CBS Sports, serves as anchor for the Network’s golf coverage. Sir Nick Faldo, winner of six majors and more than 40 tournaments worldwide, is in his seventh year as lead analyst alongside Nantz in the 18th tower. Ian Baker-Finch calls the action at the 17th hole and Gary McCord at the 16th hole. David Feherty will be an on-course reporter.
This weekend at the Northern Trust Open, and for all 20 PGA TOUR events this year, CBS Sports’ PGA TOUR coverage is streamed live on CBSSports.com and PGATOUR.com. The live streaming coverage also is available on the CBS Sports app for the iPhone, iPad and Android.
Last year John Merrick became the first Los Angeles County native to win the tournament in its 87-year history. The UCLA alumnus came from three shots back entering the final round to take it to a two-hole playoff with Charlie Beljan. Merrick won his first PGA TOUR title only 30 miles north of where he grew up and still lives, Long Beach. Merrick returns to Riviera to defend his title in a strong field that includes 16 of the top 30 players in the Official World Golf Ranking and 23 of the top 30 in the FedExCup standings. Past champions of the Northern Trust Open in the field also include Bill Haas, Ernie Els, Robert Allenby, Mike Weir, Charles Howell III, Aaron Baddeley and Fred Couples, making his 32nd start here, along with the top players in the world including Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson, Graham DeLaet, Ian Poulter, Jason Dufner, Jordan Spieth, Matt Kuchar, Keegan Bradley, Charl Schwartzel, Lee Westwood, Webb Simpson, Hunter Mahan, Rickie Fowler, Hideki Matsuyama, Ryan Moore, Charlie Wi, Ryo Ishikawa, Louis Oosthuizen, Geoff Ogilvy, Jim Furyk, K.J. Choi, Padraig Harrington, Stewart Cink, Kevin Stadler, Angel Cabrera, Carl Pettersson, Retief Goosen, Trevor Immelman, Beljan and FedExCup leader Jimmy Walker coming off his third win in only eight starts in the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season.
