Behind The Scenes

Two-time U.S. Open champ, ESPN analyst Strange on next week’s major

ESPN golf analyst Curtis Strange will be part of the network’s multiplatform coverage of the 112th U.S. Open, golf’s toughest test, next week at San Francisco’s Olympic Club.

Coverage begins with live SportsCenter reports from Olympic on Tuesday, June 12, and will include eight hours per day of first and second-round play on ESPN, ESPN3 and WatchESPN on Thursday and Friday, June 14-15, from noon-3 p.m. and 5-10 p.m (all times Eastern).

Strange won the U.S. Open twice during his career and was the last player to win the prestigious event in consecutive years (1988-89).

In the video above, Strange discusses why it seems so difficult to defend a U.S Open title; what he thinks of defending champion Rory McIlroy’s recent slump and chances to repeat; and how he transitions from hole announcer on television to analyst on SportsCenter and on ESPN Radio.
