Golf – 1978 – NBC Special – Legendary Sportscaster Curt Gowdy Hosts A Review Of 1978 Year In Golf

In this 1978 video seen herewith, legendary sportscaster Curt Gowdy hosts NBC Sports year in review…..as this footage focuses of the year in golf…..with highlights and attention paid to 28 year old Tom Watson….who won 5 tournament, with one being the PGA Championship…..along with kudos paid to Gary Player, who won 3 tournaments in a row, with one being the Masters…..but the predominance of the show is dedicated to 35 year old Jack Nicklaus…..who was named Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year….and to LPGA star Nancy Lopez…..who won seven tournaments on the LPGA Tour….while capturing the US Open. 

We here at ImaSportsphile always enjoy adding more of the “Year In Review” videos…..where the sports networks like ABC, CBS, ESPN and NBC (like in this video) provide highlights of the majors sports that took place in a given year….like 1978 in this case….for it is in these programs that we get some of our most valued footage…..and also provides us with a wonderful set of highlights by year in sports…..which are pretty darn good “foot prints” of a sports during any given year.
