Michele Tafoya is joining the Golf Channel’s coverage of the Drive, Chip and Putt national finals from Augusta National ahead of this year’s Masters Tournament, a clear indication the increasingly-popular youth competition is a major priority for the NBC Sports Group.
Tafoya is one of NBC Sports’ most high-profile personalities – the sideline reporter for NBC’s Sunday Night Football and a two-time winner of the Sports Emmy for Outstanding Sports Personality or Sports Reporter. Before joining NBC in 2011, she spent more than a decade at ABC/ESPN and also worked with CBS CBS from 1994 to 2000.
At Augusta National Golf Club, Tafoya will interview players from eight different age groups (boys/girls 7-9; 10-11; 12-13 and 14-15) and provide voiceovers for feature stories on the Drive, Chip and Putt participants that will air throughout the Golf Channel’s five-hour telecast on April 3.
