Their contracts were not renewed. Who should be their replacements?

    End of an era. Seems like they've both been announcing since I started watching golf in the mid 80s. I guess it's time for some new blood. I'd prefer former players. Maybe Duval?

    I don't think they need replacements. They still have Nance, Faldo, Baker-Finch, Pepper and Balionis.

    Can't produce a big time PGA Tour event with two people on the course. Gotta have a little more help. Need people in the towers and on-course.

    Gary gone faster than a Jamaican pickpocket.

    Kostis couldn’t save himself with his hands right at impact.

    They had a good run. They are both in their 70s---time to move on. Not surprising.

    Whoever they name most people won't like them since it appears all announcers on TV are bad LOL. Since Augusta approves who CBS has on the air for The Masters ANGC will need to vet them. My guess is one of the spots goes to Tony Romo.

    Long as they always keep Gary. His voice is smooth as a draw of a corncob pipe and a bourbon on the porch at dusk. Whatever that means.

    Kostis is a loss, McCord is 100% not. His relevance disappeared about 15 years ago.

    Maybe not replace them at all and just reduce the incessant babbling that detracts from watching golf. Maybe reduce costs and require fewer commercials.

    Outside the majors I can't even watch golf anymore because the constant commercials.

    There is absolutely no chance CBS is going to have fewer commercials now. McCord and Kostis only cost a handful of commercials a year too.

    CBS’ coverage and production is terrible. Way too little golf shown, but until their ratings dip because of this issue, things won’t change.

    This might be un popular but I've found Colin Montgomerie good on tv

    Agreed. Also, in the brief times I've heard him do commentating, Nick Price is fantastic.

    I wonder if Stuart Appleby would consider doing this for a living.

    CBS just made a statement. Kostis and McCord are being replaced by a dear friend that CBS loves - commercials.

    Thank God. Their broadcasts need more commercials.
