Golf Broadcaster In Rehab

Wed., April 24, 1996

Ben Wright, the CBS commentator removed from golf coverage after he reportedly made disparaging remarks about women golfers and lesbians, entered an alcohol rehabilitation program earlier this month, according to a published report.

She said Wright, 63, entered the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif., the first week of April.
