If you love golf, you love Golf Channel. Golf Channel has become an amazing success since it’s launch in 1995, and is the undisputed champion of golf-related content providers. The channel’s bread and butter is extensive coverage of championship golf from the major tours. But it also provides the latest updates and stories with daily episodes of “Morning Drive” and “Golf Central”, and has brought reality television to golf with it’s popular “Big Break” competition series. As I’m sure you know, golfers crave improvement and lower scores, which leads me to the golf instruction options on Golf Channel. Michael Breed’s show “The Golf Fix” is now entering it’s sixth season and has been a huge success. “School of Golf” with Martin Hall has also garnered great reviews. And now, I’m excited to announce that “Lesson Tee Live” is joining the lineup!
When Golf Channel offered me the chance to host this exciting new show, I was thrilled (imagine making your first hole-in-one, or having the chance to tee it up at Augusta National…that kind of thrilled). My co-host is Annabel Rolley, a member of the Australia PGA, who has a great swing and an even better personality.
What differentiates 'Lesson Tee Live' from other instruction programs? Well, first of all, it features different top instructors each and every week. Our first guest is none other than Jim McLean…and it doesn’t stop there. Haney, Harmon, Foley and Leadbetter are among the many top golf gurus scheduled to appear with us on the show. Award-winning PGA of America instructors will also be featured. Secondly, 'Lesson Tee Live' is shaped and directed largely by our viewers. We will review swings that are submitted via e-mail, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using #LessonTeeLive to teach lessons based on audience survey responses, and actively engage and involve our viewers through social media. Another differentiator? It’s live, not taped—which keeps the show fresh, adds a layer of spontaneity, and allows us to cater to the real-time feedback from our viewers.
Annabel and I are part of an incredible Golf Channel team that has been hard at work, preparing for the launch of this exciting new instruction-based show. I hope that all of you can tune in to Golf Channel Wednesdays at 8pm EST and catch the series premier with Jim McLean! I encourage your feedback and involvement via social media.
