This week Myrtle Beach hosted the 30th annual (Golf.com) World Amateur Handicap Championship and TheGolfDirector.com participated in the World’s Largest 19th Hole at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center by producing 2013 World Am LIVE! Presented by Grand Strand Vacations. Each night Monday through Thursday, participants in the tournament converged on the 19th hole where they were treated to an unmatched display of food, drink, fun, entertainment, and vendors.
There were just over 3300 golfers in this year’s tournament who played (hopefully their best) to progress through the initial rounds to compete in Friday’s final round at the Dye Course at Barefoot Resort. The winner….will be called World Champion! How cool is that? To be an amateur golfer and have the honor, prestige, and the title of world champion is something that can only happen in this globally supported tournament.
The TGD Radio broadcast team hosts, George Honeycutt, Hugh Royer III, and Shan Coughlin took this opportunity to broadcast remotely from the convention center. The team put together a steady stream of guest interviews from rules officials, competitors, and vendors at the World’s Largest 19th Hole.
Over the next few days, we’ll put together the story lines we covered as well as providing listen on-demand recordings of the shows we produced during the event. We offer many thanks to marketing partner, Grand Strand Vacations for sponsoring this special series called “World Am LIVE!
