FULL SWING GOLF SIMULATOR TO BE FEATURED ON TIME INC.’S WEEKLY SHOW, GOLF LIVE
NEW YORK, NY (May TK, 2016)—Time Inc.’s (NYSE:TIME) GOLF and Full Swing Golf announced a new partnership today that provides the GOLF LIVE studio with a specialized set featuring Full Swing’s latest indoor golf technology. The new simulator debuted this month in a segment on GOLF LIVE when Jason Carbone, one of GOLF’s Top 100 Teachers in America, used the technology to demonstrate the best technique for situations like those you would find on Quail Hollow’s 18th hole. The weekly video program launched earlier this year and covers the game from all angles, featuring exclusive sit-down interviews with top names in golf, analysis from the game’s best writers and advice from GOLF’s network. As part of the partnership, select segments on GOLF LIVE will use Full Swing’s indoor golf simulator, which will be incorporated across more video offerings as the brand continues to expand and diversifies its programming.
“GOLF has been a key contributor to the growth of the game, and we are thrilled to be joining them in this new initiative,” stated Ryan Dotters, CEO of Full Swing Golf.
“Full Swing’s cutting edge technology provides us with a new vehicle for dynamic in-studio content,” said Ian Orefice, Time Inc. Senior Executive Producer of Video. “We couldn’t be more excited to showcase GOLF to our audience in a whole new way as we continue to build out new video offerings across platforms.”
The 30-minute GOLF LIVE program is broadcast from Time Inc.’s studios in lower Manhattan and is hosted by award-winning sportscaster Ryan Asselta. It airs live every Tuesday at noon ET on GOLF.com, and episodes are available to watch on demand at GOLF.com/live.<br>
GOLF LIVE is one of the latest additions to GOLF.com’s expanding portfolio of video offerings, which includes the GOLF Fix Finder series of instructional videos and free video-first app. Other video productions include Tour Confidential, the long-running weekly show featuring GOLF and Sports Illustrated writers and editors debating the game’s hot-button topics, and special live video broadcasts from events like The Masters. Callaway Golf is the official sponsor of GOLF LIVE.
