Pepper was a 17-time winner on the LPGA Tour. She retired in 2004. Pepper was a commentator for NBC Sports and The Golf Channel, and also was a contributing columnist for Sports Illustrated. She announced at the end of last season that she would leave NBC/The Golf Channel to join the PGA of America Board of Directors to work on developing junior golf in the United States.

“ESPN's golf schedule is perfect for me,” Pepper said in statement. “I love working in television, and this schedule allows me to do that, but also gives me time to continue my work with the PGA of America and junior golf. It's an ideal situation.”
