A little more than a week after Greg Norman was ousted as the lead Fox analyst for Fox Sports (as first reported by Links Magazine), Fox has found a replacement and the news should surprise absolutely no one. Paul Azinger was expected by many to be Norman's replacement and now, according to Golf Digest, it is official. Azinger will join Joe Buck in the broadcasting booth for Fox's USGA schedule, including the 2016 U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club.
