He stated that he expected to work the Hero World Challenge the following month.

It was on Saturday that he declared he would participate in the tournament, his first since April.

"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 stated. "They are an amazing team, and I will really miss them.
