LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Greg Norman and Joe Buck will call the U.S. Open when it moves to Fox next year.

The network signed a 12-year rights deal with the U.S. Golf Association in August to air the Open and its other championships. Fox said Wednesday that two-time British Open champion Norman would join Buck on its lead golf announcing team.

Buck is already Fox's top play-by-play voice for its NFL and Major League Baseball coverage. An avid golfer, he currently plays at a 3 handicap.

NBC's last U.S. Open will be at Pinehurst No. 2 in June.
