Golf Channel said Wadkins will make his debut Friday at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship in Hawaii. He will be the lead analyst for the 22 events on the Champions Tour that Golf Channel televises.

Wadkins was lead analyst for CBS Sports from 2002 to 2006 until being replaced by Nick Faldo.

Wadkins was recognized for his fearless play and outspoken nature when he won 21 times on the PGA Tour, including the 1977 PGA Championship at Pebble Beach. He was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2009.

He says he is excited to return to the booth to talk about players against whom he competed for 40 years.
