Blog dedicated to game of golf takes username @AmGolferBlog
The American Golfer blog has expanded its reach into the world of social media, taking the Twitter username @AmGolferBlog.
“Since starting the American Golfer blog in 2008, I always felt the website was plenty to share information about the game of golf,” said editor Bob Bruce. “However, we’ve posted so much news about worthy charities over the years, it seems a shame to not reach even more people in, or out of, the golf community.”
In an effort to grow followers, American Golfer will dedicate space on contests - in-house or external - and Tweet details and links.
“We hear about offers for prize giveaways, ranging from terrific golf equipment to luxurious, all-expenses-paid trips, on a daily basis,” Bruce said. “Being in the media, we’re inundated with this, whereas your average golf fan may not be. Twitter is a great way to share the wealth.”

Launching in July 2008 as a site dedicated to providing valuable information for the traveling golfer, American Golfer - comprised of golf/travel writers and club professionals - took the next step by sharing new product information and reviews from the many equipment companies across the industry.
