Mike Whan says : “We’ve got an incredible partnership with Golf Channel, which puts us on every week and produces television we show around the world,” “But people that subscribe to the Golf Channel are golfers. They go to that channel. You don’t tend to surf your way past the Golf Channel on anybody’s home cable network. While we really enjoy that audience and what it’s meant to our sponsors, I wish we could be on network TV more often. I think we were on network TV one weekend when we started. We were on seven or so last season. But in a perfect world, a third or half of our events would pop over to network TV so we could introduce our brand and our athletes to a much greater audience” External link

Mike Whan added : “Now with digital TV opportunities and what’s happening, I think navigating the next four or five years for our global expansion is big,” “When it comes to sport right now, there’s not a lot of role models for us to follow. There’s not a lot of others that really can deliver, certainly in women’s sport. We’re doing that, but we’re sort of the guinea pig leading the way in that in all the different countries we play in. Quite frankly, one of the benefits of all those different countries is we’re generating golf interest, youth golfers and future superstars in those countries. So, it’s good for the global game” External link
