Amanda Balionis is a CBS Sports reporter who regularly covers professional golf and has quickly become one of the industry's most recognisable faces. 

Originally from Pittsburgh, Balionis, 38, studied broadcast journalism at Hofstra University in Long Island, New York.

Since graduating, she has had a number of jobs, including working for the PGA Tour before moving to Callaway to be an in-house reporter for the golf equipment giant. 

Balionis has worked for CBS for seven years now, and as well as golf has also covered American football. 

Is Amanda Balionis married?

Balionis now lives in San Diego and has been married to former Baltimore Ravens quarterback Bryn Renner since 2022. 

Although not confirmed, Balionis is reported to be going through a divorce with Renner and was recently spotted without her wedding ring during CBS coverage of the Wells Fargo Championship.

An unsubstantiated report from the DailyMail suggested after Rory McIlroy announced his divorce to Erica Stoll he was romantically involved with Balionis. 

Per court documents, McIlroy's marriage to Erica was 'irretrievably broken'. 

A source at CBS has since passed comment about the romance links between McIlroy and Balionis. 

Outside of golf, Balionis is a trained yoga instructor and the founder of 'Puppies and Golf,' a charity dedicated to supporting dog shelters and rescue dogs, as well as providing families in need with grants to cover the cost of emergency medical or training bills.

As well as reporting on golf, she also plays the sport and took it up when she was nine years old. 

Her parents are both keen golfers, and her grandparents met when playing the sport. 

She's also a keen swimmer and played volleyball at college. 

Balionis has also featured in both seasons of the Netflix documentary Full Swing.
