Pat Welsh's Biography

Since joining Channel Seven News in Brisbane back in 1975, presenter Pat Welsh has become one of Australia’s top sports journalists, commentators and more recently, sports editors.


Best known for his rugby league and golfing commentary, Pat has travelled extensively throughout Europe, Australia, the United Kingdom and United States for the Seven Network. He has covered several Kangaroo tours and the 1992 Rugby League World Cup as well as State of Origins.

Pat has built a strong reputation for his wide sporting knowledge and commentary. His extensive experience includes Olympic Games, Commonwealth Games, cricket, rugby league, rugby union, AFL, horse racing and golfing commentaries. The son of a bookmaker, Pat is also a regular commentator on Seven's Melbourne Cup coverage, presenting from the Flemington betting ring.

Pat is a familiar face at golfing tournaments across Australia, where he has earned the nickname "Whispering" Pat Welsh for his hushed, on-course commentary. His commitment to that sport has seen Pat cover the prestigious US Open and British Open golf tournaments and the President's Cup for Channel Seven.

Pat has commentated at eight Olympic Games and is one of the few people to have done so. He was part of the Channel Seven team at the 1992 Barcelona and Atlanta Olympic Games, introduced the bobsleigh and luge events at the Winter Olympic Games in Nagano in 1998 and Salt Lake City in 2002 and reported trackside at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. In 2004 Pat was again poolside and trackside in Athens and in 2006, reported from the Winter Olympic Games in Turin, followed by the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

This remarkable sports journalist and presenter mixes with some of the biggest names in sport in the world and has many stories to tell. He keeps audiences enthralled with his stories and insights of what it like to be part of some of the biggest sporting events in Australia and the world. His passion and knowledge on his topic leaves his audiences wanting more.

Pat can tailor his presentation to be sport specific eg just on golf or the Olympic Games or just let you sit back and enjoy "The Storybook of Sport".
