 “WORLD GOLF CHAMPIONSHIPS: ACCENTURE MATCH PLAY CHAMPIONSHIP”

THIS WEEKEND FEB. 22-23

 

“Super Social Saturday” Celebrates Fan Experience During Coverage 

 

The world’s top players compete at the WORLD GOLF CHAMPIONSHIPS: ACCENTURE MATCH PLAY CHAMPIONSHIP this week as CBS Sports broadcasts the star-powered tournament on Saturday, Feb. 22 and Sunday, Feb. 23 (2:00-6:00 PM, ET; both days), live from The Golf Club at Dove Mountain in Marana, Ariz.  CBS Sports broadcasts the semifinal matches on Saturday and the final and consolation matches on Sunday.

 

Also on Saturday, CBS Sports celebrates the fan experience with “Super Social Saturday,” a social media initiative that incorporates fan tweets, pictures and interactions throughout the day’s coverage of golf on CBS and college basketball on CBS, CBS Sports Network and CBSSports.com. CBS Sports is encouraging fans to use the hashtag #CBSSuperSocial for all social activity relating to CBS Sports programming on Saturday.

 

During CBS Sports’ coverage of the WGC: ACCENTURE MATCH PLAY CHAMPIONSHIP, on-course reporter Peter Kostis answers fan questions on the broadcast and on Twitter from the @GOLFonCBS account, using the hashtag #AskKostis. He will break down swings, provide tips to help improve a specific element of the game, as well as answer questions about the day’s play.

 

“Super Social Saturday” will be promoted from the various CBS Sports Twitter accounts: @CBSSports, @CBSSportsNet, @GOLFonCBS @HOOPSonCBS and @CBSSportsGang.

 

Jim Nantz, now in his 29th year covering golf for CBS, serves as anchor of CBS Sports’ golf coverage. Sir Nick Faldo, winner of six major championships and more than 40 tournaments worldwide, serves as lead analyst. Ian Baker Finch calls the action at the 17th hole and Gary McCord at the 16th hole.  Peter Kostis and David Feherty serve as on-course reporters.  Lance Barrow is Coordinating Producer and Steve Milton is Director of CBS Sports’ golf coverage.  Harold Bryant is Executive Producer and Vice President, Production, CBS Sports.

 

This weekend at the WGC: Accenture Match Play Championship, 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 Matt Kuchar defeated defending champion Hunter Mahan in the Championship Match to earn his first World Golf Championships title and fifth career PGA TOUR victory. The 64 top-available players from the Official World Golf Ranking teed off in the single elimination tournament on Wednesday (19).  Follow the field at PGATOUR.com and CBS Sports.com.

 

After the WGC: Accenture Match Play Championship, CBS Sports is ON THE ROAD TO THE FINAL FOUR with college basketball and the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship.  Golf coverage returns in early-April when CBS Sports broadcasts the 2014 Mastersâ, the most prestigious competition in golf, for the 59th consecutive year from Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga.   Coverage of the longest-running sports event ever presented on one network begins with highlight shows re-capping early-round action on Thursday, April 10 and Friday, April 11 (11:35-11:50 PM, ET).  Live coverage of the final two rounds of the Masters will be broadcast on Saturday, April 12 (3:00-7:00 PM, ET) and Sunday, April 13 (2:00-7:00 PM, ET).
