Roger Maltbie has been a key member of NBC Sports’ golf coverage since 1992. As the lead on-course reporter for the network’s Golf Channel on NBC coverage, Maltbie usually draws the assignment of walking with the tournament leaders.
The five-time PGA TOUR winner began his professional career in 1975 with tremendous success, winning back-to-back events: the Quad Cities Open and the Pleasant Valley Classic, which led to him being named PGA Tour’s Rookie of the Year. The following year, he won the inaugural Memorial Tournament, beating Hale Irwin in a four-hole playoff. Maltbie’s other career wins include the Manufacturers Hanover Westchester Classic and NEC World Series of Golf, both in 1985. He carded 55 top-10 finishes in his career despite enduring two shoulder surgeries.
A native of Modesto, Calif., Maltbie attended San Jose State University. A devoted San Francisco 49ers fan, Maltbie wears a 49ers Super Bowl ring, given to him by former owner Ed DeBartolo, Jr.
