Delivering news from American golf to a global audience was certainly the goal of TGD Radio creators just barely one year ago, but reaching 160 countries, all 50 United States, and over 20,000 cities in the first year was …unexpected to say the least. It was a modest beginning by TGD Radio’s first host, George Honeycutt in January 2013 when he aired his first show “Tee It Up Grand Strand”. “Tee It UP Grand Strand” offered listeners up to date information about golf in the Seaside Golf Capital of the World.
Today the network airs 7 shows on a regular (weekly) basis and other special airings. The format has been expanded to include much more news from the PGA, LPGA, and European Tours, as well as continuing to promote Myrtle Beach golf. Broadcasting from the Grand Strand offers up plenty of content and a bevy of willing co-hosts. The current format includes:
“Monday Morning GolfRap” hosted by George Honeycutt and Hugh RoyerIII. GolfRap gives listeners a recap of the weekend’s golf from around the world.
“Amateur Golf Talk LIVE!” hosted by Shan Coughlin. AGTL (as we call it) offers amateur golfers news and insight on a variety of topics such as tournament schedules, charity events, the TGD monthly prize package, and more.
“Golf Connections with Mitch Laurance” hosted by…you guessed it…Mitch Laurance! Mitch connects the history, traditions, champions, and people of the game then and now. His guest list is a who’s who in the golf industry.
“The Round Table” hosted by George Honeycutt and Hugh RoyerIII. Anything goes at the Round Table. These guys will tackle any (usually) golf-related topic with guests.
“Pro Golf Talk” hosted by George Honeycutt and Hugh RoyerIII. Pro Golf Talk gives the audience a look into the coming weekend of golf. Venue, pairing, and the latest buzz in the industry usually make for great discussion.
“Tech Talk” hosted by various members of the TGD Radio staff. Tech Talk gives amateur golfers the latest info about new products coming down the pike. We often include remote and in-studio interviews with industry representatives.
“Tee It Up Grand Strand” hosted by various members of the TGD Radio staff. The original show is still one of our most popular. The program bring PGA Pros and other course representatives into the studio to discuss the latest news regarding their course, golf specials, and updates to maintenance schedules.
“The Rules of Golf” hosted by Frank Monk isn’t broadcast on a regular basis, but has been very popular. (No Drop) Frank tells it exactly like it is…right from the many pages of the Rules of Golf.
“Golf Rednecks” hosted by…Golf Rednecks hasn’t been a regular program, but always brings some laughs from the participants.
