The presenting sponsorship of GOLF Channel’s coverage of PGA Tour Champions tournaments includes telecast open and close designations in every PGA Tour Champions round aired on the GOLF Channel, as well as Presenting Sponsor billboards and a weekly What’s Your Edge? Golf tips series featuring Tour Edge staff players.
“Being the presenting sponsor of GOLF Channel’s coverage of PGA Tour Champions tournaments is a big step forward for Tour Edge in streamlining all of our recent efforts on the PGA Tour Champions,” said David Glod, President of Tour Edge. “This is part of a long-term vision that cements the PGA Tour Champions as the perfect home for Tour Edge and our branding efforts.”
Tour Edge has also re-upped as the presenting sponsor of PGA Tour Champions Learning Center, the popular GOLF Channel show that airs every Wednesday in prime time.
PGA Tour Champions Learning Center is scheduled to air over 40 original episodes in 2021, with Tour Edge prominently featured within each episode.
Learning Center will also incorporate Tour Edge Staff Professionals in their What’s Your Edge? tips series.
The 2021 Tour Edge professional staff includes PGA Tour Champions players Ken Duke, Bernhard Langer, Tom Lehman, Scott McCarron, Tim Petrovic and Duffy Waldorf.
The entire staff recently filmed a series of television spots for Tour Edge that will begin airing on GOLF Channel in March.
