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.
