GolfTalk Live Providing Special Coverage of Myrtle Beach World Amateur Handicap Championship

(Philadelphia, PA) – The award-winning GolfTalk Live radio show is returning to Myrtle Beach once again for a special week of coverage from the 35th World Amateur Handicap Championship.

Show host Tony Leodora will do a special preview show of the world’s largest golf tournament on Saturday, August 25. Special guests will look ahead to the exciting week of action for more than 3,000 golfers, playing on 60 area golf courses.

Beginning Sunday, Leodora will be posting the entertaining first-person confessions of his week of play in the World Am. The stories – complete with all of the gory details – will be posted in the Blog Section of the radio show’s website, As always, Leodora encourages some of the other championship competitors to comment on his recounting of the action.

The following Saturday, September 1, GolfTalk Live will air its special wrap-up show of the week’s activities. There will be special guests from the World’s Largest 19th Hole, the nightly bash in the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. And, of course, there will be an interview with the eventual champion, recorded greenside at the finish of the final round at the Dye Club at Barefoot Resort.

“I haven’t been to all 35 World Amateur Handicap Championships,” admits Leodora. “But I have been to at least half of them. It is the most fun-filled week of golf in the year.

“I used to come to Myrtle Beach with aspirations of winning my flight, competing in the championship round against other flight winners, and maybe even hoisting the championship trophy. Now, my goal is to complete all four rounds. Call it a case of diminished expectations.”
