Hosted by Andrew Maher, it will reportedly not only contain highlights from the week of golf and previews of upcoming events but will also have a bit for the everyday golfer including equipment testing, tips, course reviews and celebrity interviews. Peter Senior will feature in tonight’s show along with Nikki Garrett and jockey Damien Oliver.
Network Ten General Manager of Sport David White said, “Along with our extensive live sport offerings we believe that sports fans want to learn about different sports and how to incorporate them into their lives. This show will have something for the casual golfer right through to the dedicated serious golfer.”
Interestingly, it is on the same night as the only other dedicated golf show on Australian television, The PGA Golf Show on FoxSports but goes to air an hour later on One HD. I’m interested to see if this new show lives up to the rumours – a little less dedicated to PGA/Euro Tour highlights and more like the sort of golf talk you might hear in the clubhouse or at Aussie Golfer.
