Paul Azinger, a 12-time winner on the PGA Tour, will not return as the lead analyst on NBC’s golf coverage, multiple outlets reported.

Azinger has been in the booth for NBC’s broadcasts since 2019, when Johnny Miller retired. He previously was a lead golf analyst at ABC/ESPN and FOX.

“We want to thank Paul for his work with us over the last five years,” NBC said in a statement. “His insights, his work ethic and relationships in the golf industry are well known, and we appreciate what he brought to our team. We wish Paul the best in his future endeavors.”

According to Golf Digest, the move appears to be the start of an overhaul of NBC’s golf coverage, including their PGA Tour broadcasts on the NBC-owned Golf Channel.

Azinger, 63, was the winner of the 1993 PGA Championship and also won The Tour Championship in 1992.

“I have treasured working beside Dan Hicks and the other talented NBC broadcasters as well as lead producer Tommy Roy and all those behind the scenes,” Azinger said in a statement Sunday, according to Golf Digest. “… I have faith in what the future holds for me, for NBC and for the great game of golf.”

No replacement analyst was revealed.
