Jim Nantz Now Lives on the Pebble Beach Golf Course

Jim Nantz, the CBS announcer who will call the Super Bowl, Masters and Final Four in early 2013, gave a Q &A with the Charlotte Observer, and this was the most interesting thing he said:

Q. Is it true you live at Pebble Beach Golf Links?

I moved to Pebble Beach full time this year. I’m looking at the seventh green right now. It’s all beautiful. We got married June 9 and we moved in that very night.

Q. You got married in June on the famous seventh hole there. Why did you pick that spot?

In the book I wrote, “Always By My Side,” I wrote a couple of pages about how the seventh hole was such a spiritual setting to me and I always felt my father’s presence there. Every day during the years we covered the Pebble Beach golf tournament, I would march out there before the sun was up and sit on the rail fence there in prayerful introspection and think about all the blessings in my life.

Nantz is a polarizing figure (unless you like the Patriots), but it’d be pretty rad to live on one of the best golf courses in the country. I know I’ve said this before, but if you ever hear Nantz doing a radio interview, expect to stay in the car for an extra 20 or 30 minutes – he’s a phenomenal storyteller. [Observer]
