I’ve always felt there wasn’t enough local golf news, especially on television. That problem will be addressed on October 13, 2010 when Tee Time: Golf in Northern California debuts at 7 pm on KVIE channel 6, public television for Northern California.
The show takes a look at Sacramento area people who have made a mark in the world of golf and will include an enjoyable glimpse into the history of golf in Sacramento and at Haggin Oaks in addition to a peek at local professional Erick Justesen who played in the 2010 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links.
Other stories include the basics of 3-D golf instruction, the American Century Celebrity golf tournament at Lake Tahoe and the Home Care and Hospice First Tee Open at Pebble Beach.
I host the piece on the Monterey golf tournament which introduces local First Tee of Greater Sacramento junior golfers who played in the Champions TOUR event including Alex Gibbs, Taryn Yee, Ashley Noda, Austin Smotherman, and Briana Mao. They’re all skilled players but moreover, they’re extraordinary people.
The show was produced by award winner Kelly Peterson from channel 6. It was great fun working with her.
I invite you to join me and KVIE for the premier of Tee Time: Golf in Northern California on channel 6, October 13 at 7pm.
