Aronimink and KPMG Women’s PGA Championship Previewed in April Episode of Traveling Golfer
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – Like a badge of honor, the Greater Philadelphia area once again is preparing to host a major golf championship.
The KPMG Women’s PGA Championship is scheduled to come to Aronimink Golf Club at the end of June. The best women golfers in the world will be on display – on one of America’s best golf courses. And that is why Part 2 of this championship preview will be featured in the April episode of the Traveling Golfer television show. The first part aired in October of 2019.
Delaware County is rolling out the red carpet for the thousands of visitors who will be coming to the area. Steve Byrne, executive director of Visit Delco, PA, has invited the world: “Visit Delaware County. There is so much to see and do.”
Jackie Endsley, the championship director, has been on-site at Aronimink in Delaware County for more than a year and says, “Everyone has been so welcoming and I know that the world’s best golfers truly will enjoy everything that the county has to offer.”
A special interview with renowned former amateur champion and former Senior Tour professional star Jay Sigel is a highlight of this show. Sigel talks about his longtime attachment to Aronimink and how he views the renovation of the course by architect Gil Hanse in preparation for the upcoming championship.
Another inside look is provided in an interview with Aronimink head golf professional Jeff Kiddie, who takes viewers around the course and explains some of the special characteristics of how it will test the best women golfers in the world.
“This show is a very interesting and informative look inside one of America’s greatest golf clubs,” explains Traveling Golfer host Tony Leodora. “At the same time it shows the very special place that Aronimink holds within Delaware County.”
