Athens, GA (Dec 6, 2007) - I have known Lance Barrow since my days caddying on the PGA Tour back in the early 1980's. I nearly choked when watching Tin Cup and his face popped up along with Fran Chirkinian playing themselves. Of course it was a fictional story because Chirkinian did not cuss once in the movie. Here is Lance Barrow's profile as published by CBS Sports.

Lance Barrow was promoted to coordinating producer and lead game producer for THE NFL ON CBS in May 2004. Since the NFL returned to the CBS Television Network in 1998, Barrow had served as the producer for the Network's NFL announce team of Dick Enberg and Dan Dierdorf for six seasons and served as replay director for CBS Sports' coverage of Super Bowl XXXV and Super Bowl XXXVIII. An eight-time Emmy Award-winner, Barrow joined CBS Sports in May 1975 as a spotter/researcher for the Network's golf coverage. He has served in virtually every capacity of CBS Sports' golf production. Barrow assumed the position of coordinating producer, CBS Sports golf, in January 1997 and has produced the majority of the Network's golf coverage since 1996, including the Network's historic coverage of the Masters® and PGA Championship.

Barrow produced CBS Sports' coverage of ski jumping and nordic combined at the 1994 Olympic Winter Games and was the associate director of the primetime broadcasts at the 1992 Olympic Winter Games. He also has served as the producer for coverage of NCAA basketball, college football and auto racing. Barrow produced coverage of the 1998 Daytona 500, for which he received an Emmy nomination. As an associate producer, his credits include the Masters and PGA Championship; NCAA men's Final Four; Daytona 500; the U.S. Open Tennis Championships; THE NFL TODAY and six Super Bowls. He has earned Emmy Awards for his work on the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship, the Daytona 500 and the NFL.

Barrow attended to Abilene Christian University in Texas, where he played football and baseball. He earned a communications degree in 1978. Born Feb. 2, 1955, in Fort Worth, Texas, Barrow lives in Colleyville, Texas.
