NBC adds Brandel Chamblee to U.S. Open booth

Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee will join NBC’s main commentary booth at the U.S. Open this June at Pinehurst No. 2.

NBC, which owns Golf Channel, has yet to name a permanent replacement for Paul Azinger, whose contract was not renewed after last year.

NBC will wheel out a four-man team for the third major championship of the season. While Mike Tirico and Brad Faxon work the odd-numbered holes during prime viewing hours, Chamblee will team up with play-by-play voice Dan Hicks on the even-numbered holes.

It’s the first year NBC is trying an “odd/even system” for hole assignments, NBC Sports president of production Sam Flood said in a news release.

“Our new approach lets our play-by-play announcers give more context for what’s happening, while creating more opportunities for our analysts and on-course reporters to engage with each other and break down the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ before and after each moment,” Flood said.

Jim “Bones” Mackay will return as an on-course reporter after the veteran caddie and Justin Thomas parted ways just before the Masters. Roger Maltbie will be back as an on-course reporter along with Gary Koch as an analyst.
