PHILADELPHIA, Pa.– Lewis & Clark had the young Indian guide, Sacajewea, to lead them through America’s uncharted Northwest Territory.
Dr. Livingstone had Henry Stanley to rescue him and lead him out of the jungles of Africa.
American aviator Amelia Earhart had … well, nobody … and look what happened to her.
The Traveling Golfer — in an effort to leave nobody unaided and wandering around the vast Grand Strand of Myrtle Beach — has found the perfect golf tour guide and will use him to lead viewers through the February episode of the award-winning show.
That guide is AJ Gohil, a veteran of the Myrtle Beach area and someone who is well-steeped in the golf and the lifestyle of the area. His mission on this television journey was to take viewers from the southernmost golf course – Wedgefield CC near Georgetown SC, to Lockwood Folly CC near Wilmington, NC.
Gohil is the Vice President of Sales and Business Development for the Myrtle Beach Golf Trail – a group of 22 courses in the area.
“For years golfers have come to the vast Myrtle Beach area without sufficient guidance. Getting the most out of their golf and vacation trip has been a chore,” said Gohil. “This show will answer any questions.”
In an effort to expand the ever-growing reach of the television show, the Traveling Golfer has enlisted the help of experts like Gohil, new managing partner Jeff Gilder and Sales Director Brian Stefan. Each will have different roles in upcoming episodes.
“This expansion of the Traveling Golfer is very exciting to me,” said Tony Leodora, longtime host of the award-winning show. “And to be showing off our new versatility in a show based in Myrtle Beach – an area that I have been visiting every year since 1986 – is the icing on the cake.”
The February episode of the Traveling Golfer airs as a scheduled weekly feature show on NBC Sports and NBC Sports + throughout three markets in the Mid-Atlantic regions. NBC Sports airings are 10:30 a.m. on Sundays, 10 p.m. on Tuesdays and 11 a.m. on Thursdays. NBC Sports + airs the show at 8 p.m. Mondays and Fridays. In addition, the show airs nationally, two times every day, on the Fun Roads Network (funroads.tv/schedule) – in the San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Wichita, Detroit, Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, Washington State, North Dakota, Raleigh, Orlando, San Jose, Albany and Boise markets.
Additionally, national and international expansion has taken place via the new wingding™ Network, which reaches more than 275 million households. It is available on Roku (50 Million), Amazon Fire TV (55 Million), Apple TV (40 million), Chromecast (56 million) and iTunes (28 million).
The Traveling Golfer also airs a number of times throughout the month on “Rivertalk” on HTC-4 in Myrtle Beach.
The show also airs on the Traveling Golfer network of websites, including The Golf Director Network and The Myrtle Beach Golf Channel (see full list of sites on www.travelinggolfer.tv).
As part of every Traveling Golfer show there is the feature, “Tech Talk”, hosted by Tour Edge Golf experts, such as President Dave Glod. With years of experience as a club maker, Glod presents an inside look at the research and development of high-quality golf equipment.
Responding to golfers’ never-ending demands to learn more about interesting golf courses and golf resorts across the country and around the world, well-traveled host Tony Leodora created the Traveling Golfer so he could take viewers on video trips to some of the most exciting golf locations. In each of the last nine years, the show has been honored by the International Network of Golf with one of its prestigious awards. In four of those years the Traveling Golfer was named the No. 1 Golf Television Show in America.
The Traveling Golfer is a series of monthly shows hosted by Leodora and his partner, Jeff Gilder. Both have many years of experience in televised golf. The featured destination stays on the website for one month, before being replaced by a new show. Alternate shows also air in a two-month rotation. All old shows are archived for continued viewing on the YouTube Network and on the home website, www.travelinggolfer.tv.
