TV golf show premieres tonight

Despite the complete lack of any news or information on the website, One HD’s new golf show “The Pro Shop” will be airing tonight at 8:30pm.

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.

    Watched the show last night and liked it. It was relaxed, informal and informative. I’ll keep watching

    Yeah me too. I wasn’t totally blown away or anything – lacked a little bit of atmosphere I thought but I’ll watch again.

    The second show last evening was disappointing. Whilst more sophisticated and presumably professional, production was not up with amateur show Golf Zone on Ch 31. Re-hash of what we had already seen on HD-1 in previous week scored no points; interview with Jack Newton OK …but … and I still have no idea what 13 Beach really offers me. At least this week Andrew did not walk around the course with his hands in pockets.
    At the close there was nothing I wanted to remember. But I’ll try it again next week.
