Welcome to the home page for the AUGUSTA GOLF SHOW. My name is John Patrick and I own the show, which currently airs in seven radio markets. You can hear the Augusta Golf Show Saturday mornings at 7 am on “The TEAM560″ in Columbia, South Carolina, and also at 7am Saturday mornings on NEWSRADIO WTKS in Savannah, Georgia and at 7am Saturday mornings on WGIG 1440AM in Brunswick/Sea Island, Ga. The show airs at 8am Saturday mornings on ESPN1340AM here in Augusta and at 9am Saturdays on 97.9 THE SPORTS MONSTER in Tallahassee, Florida. And on Sundays, it airs at 9am on ESPN RADIO 94.1 in Norfolk, Virginia. and at 10am on WSCC 94.3 in Charleston, South Carolina. I couldn’t be happier these stations and I look forward to long and prosperous relationships with each of the new affiliates.
I’m proud to announce that earlier this year, at the PGA Merchandise show in Orlando, the International Network of Golf, ING named The Augusta Golf Show with John Patrick the best radio golf show in the country. I’m very proud of that honor, and humbled by the recognition.
This weekend on the show, David Lingmerth, coming off his tie for second in last week’s Players Championship. Jason Day, with a top five finish in the Masters, and a top twenty finish last week. Martin Davis, the author of “Byron Nelson, The Story of Golf’s Greatest Gentleman and The Greatest Winning Streak in History” on the legacy of Lord Byron. Finally, Champions Tour player Tom Purtzer will tell us “Why He Loves The Game”
If you know of someone in another market that would like to air the program, I would love to hear from you. You can send me an e-mail at email@example.com, I would love to hear from you.
So very sad to hear of the passing of Ken Venturi. Kenny was one of the best amateurs to ever play the game, and one of the games finest gentlemen. He won the 1964 US Open at Congressional, was lead analyst for CBS’ golf coverage for 35 years, Captain of the 2000 President’s Cup team, and a 2013 Member of the World Golf Hall of Fame. Kenny was always so very kind to me, there when I called and always said yes when I asked him to come on the show…Rest In Peace, Kenny…..
