And now it’s on to 2016! We’ve got big plans this year and will be out on the road early, covering the LPGA Coates Golf Championship in Ocala, the PGA Tour Valspar Championship at Innisbrook, The Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill and one of our favorite events of the year, The Guardian Retirement Championship from Sarabay Country Club.
In addition, we’ve got great interviews lining up including some of the biggest names in the world of golf as well as many of our local PGA and LPGA teaching professionals, authors, course architects, and much, much more. Here’s to a spectacular 2016 and thanks so much for listening!
Congratulations to Symetra Tour Alum and the newest member of the LPGA Tour, Rachel Rohanna!! By the slimmest of margins (less than $300 total prize money), Rachel has earned her 2016 LPGA Card and will be battling out with the best in the world week in and week out. Back in April, Rachel won the Guardian Retirement Championship right here in Sarasota and that, coupled with 6 top 10 finishes on the Symetra tour, has earned her full status! Rachel has a rich “golf heritage” with generations of golf professionals throughout both sides of her family. If you missed the interview on the show, fear not – we’ve got you covered!
