Since coming to the United States from South Africa in the early 1990s, Mark Immelman has risen steadily through the ranks of the sports broadcasting world, becoming a fixture on CBS Sports Network’s golf coverage and hosting a popular podcast on PGATour.com. His success, though, hasn’t come without its share of challenges, temptations, and frustrations. That’s made him all the more grateful for his wife, Tracy, and the support she’s given him over the course of a faith journey of many years. In conversations with Nate Dewberry and Paul Amos, Mark relates what he’s learned about overcoming fear and self-doubt, staying grounded, and being “present” for his wife and family.
