Tafoya Joins Golf Channel’s Drive, Chip and Putt Finals

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.
