Even though I ended up in the hospital on the first Golf Road Warriors trip to Ireland, I’m ready to take this show on the road to Scottsdale, home to some of the best desert golf courses on the planet.
Portland, Ore. (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
Following on its inaugural Golf Road Warriors trip to Ireland in July, The A Position will send four journalists to Scottsdale, Ariz. Nov. 28- Dec. 4, 2011 for a weeklong golf road adventure. The writers will create and broadcast daily original content via a collection of websites, print media, social media, podcasts, and radio that will be further disseminated by sponsor partners. The content will include course and equipment reviews; opinion pieces; travel stories and videos; and the sharp observations and commentary of four award-winning golf journalists who have worked for many of the best media outlets worldwide.
Renowned golf broadcaster and historian Peter Kessler, who will anchor the team of journalists, says, “Even though I ended up in the hospital on the first Golf Road Warriors trip to Ireland, I’m ready to take this show on the road to Scottsdale, home to some of the best desert golf courses on the planet.”
