Dottie Pepper Joins ESPN's Golf Coverage Team

Dottie Pepper, a major championship-winning golfer as well as a respected television commentator and author, has joined ESPN's golf coverage team and will make her on-air debut at next month's U.S. Open.

Pepper, a 17-time winner on the LPGA Tour during her career, will serve multiple roles on ESPN's multiplatform golf coverage including analyst, on-course reporter and anchor during live play. She also will be an analyst on ESPN's signature news and information program SportsCenter and will write for ESPN.com.

"Joining the ESPN golf team offers me the chance to cover the greatest golf events in the world," said Pepper. "It's a team of passionate and proven winners, dedicated to making the events they cover the best in the game."

Pepper, who retired from the LPGA in 2004, worked for the past eight years as a golf commentator for NBC Sports and The Golf Channel and also was a contributing columnist for Sports Illustrated. She announced at the end of the 2012 season that she would be joining the PGA of America Board of Directors to work on developing junior golf in the United States.

ESPN's championship golf schedule for 2013 includes the Masters, U.S. Open and The Open Championship; the U.S. Women's Open and Women's British Open; and the U.S. Senior Open and Senior Open Championship.

"ESPN's golf schedule is perfect for me," said Pepper. "I love working in television and this schedule allows me to do that but also gives me time to continue my work with the PGA of America and junior golf. It's an ideal situation."

A three-time NCAA All-American golfer at Furman University, Pepper turned pro in 1987 and her 17 victories on the LPGA Tour included two of women's golf's major championships. She was LPGA Player of the Year in 1992, a six-time Solheim Cup team member and won more than $6.8 million during her career.

In addition to her work on television, Pepper also is co-author of the Bogey Tees Off and Bogey Ballton's Night Before Christmas children's books.

"We're very pleased to have the opportunity for Dottie to join our team," said Mike McQuade, ESPN vice president, production. "Her knowledge, experience and professionalism will bring another layer of strength to our golf coverage."

ESPN will televise the first two rounds of the second men's major championship of the season, the U.S. Open from Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pa., June 13-14. Coverage also will include six days of SportsCenter specials from the event beginning Tuesday, June 11.
