Longtime golf broadcast analyst David Feherty teamed exclusively with NBC Sports and will cover the sport’s return to the Olympics at Rio 2016.

“I’m really looking forward to this next step in my career‎, but I’ll miss a lot of people who have had my back for nearly 20 years. And to be honest, I’m on the verge of soiling myself,” Feherty, 57, said in a press release. “However, I am looking forward to new challenges and opportunities at NBC and Golf Channel. I haven’t yet heard the over-under on me getting fired, but hey, I beat the odds the last time.”

Golf returns to the Olympics for the first time since 1904 next year.

As a player, the Northern Ireland native won 10 tournaments in the 1980s and early 1990s and represented Europe in the 1991 Ryder Cup.
