Las Vegas, Nevada (July 7, 2014)–The ties between Las Vegas and the PGA TOUR run deep. The city is the home of two PGA TOUR owned and operated TPC golf courses and the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open is celebrating its 32nd year in 2014. In addition, the city has hosted events on the Champions PGA TOUR and was the host city of the original Tournament of Champions. So Las Vegas golfers should be interested to learn that the PGA TOUR has launched Golf Talk America, a new 2-hour radio show on PGATOUR.com that will feature news and info about the Tour and other golf news. — By Brian Hurlburt
Produced by Golf Talk America Corporation, Golf Talk America will be hosted by Virgil Herring, a popular golf radio host in Nashville, Tenn., and the 2003 Tennessee PGA Teacher of the Year. Joining him will be longtime touring professional Danny Briggs, a six-time member of the PGA TOUR with nearly 200 starts and 500 rounds played in his PGA TOUR career, as well as former Vanderbilt University standout and Asian Tour winner Ned Michaels.
