Fox to televise Norman's tournament

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Fox Sports gets its first experience broadcasting golf in America by taking over the Franklin Templeton Shootout at the end of the year.

The 54-hole team event in Florida will be the debut of Fox Sports in golf ahead of its 12-year deal to televise the U.S. Open starting in 2015. Fox announced last week that Joe Buck would be its lead golf announcer and Greg Norman the main analyst.

Norman is the host of what formerly was called the Shark Shootout, which remains one of the most popular offseason events.

The tournament will be Dec. 11-13 at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Fla. The final round will be on Saturday.

Fox Sports 1 will televise the weekday rounds, and Fox Sports will show the final round.
