2/17- Global GGG Show> Golf Channel’s Original Host Peter Kessler

Do you remember the melodic baritone voice of Peter Kessler?  Peter premiered at the Golf Channel and was the host until 2002. In those 8 years he wrote, hosted and produced over 1300 hours of “live” television.  He has interviewed nearly every great player and teacher in the 20th century.

The Golf, Grape & Grub Show brings in Peter to discuss some hot topics in the game along with his wonderful historical insight. Jack or Tiger as the GOAT; rolling back the ball for pros; slow play; you name it, we’ll get Peter’s take on it.

Pam Wood and I tee it up at 11 AM (CT) this Saturday on FB Live.

Known by many as “The Voice of Golf”, Peter was also the host of HBO Sports and has narrated Emmy award winning documentaries. He has also written acclaimed interviews for GOLF Magazine and founded the first hybrid golf club company.

For the past six, years Peter has hosted and produced a golf talk show on Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s PGA Tour Network.  He’s also the host of Golf Stories on the 101 Network which debuted on DIRECT TV in 2010.

6/3-Global GGG Show> Pioneer Broadcaster Ann Liguori + Hogan Winner Maverick McNealy

6/3-Global GGG Show> Pioneer Broadcaster Ann Liguori + Hogan Winner Maverick McNealy

The Golf, Grape & Grub Show is all about pursuing and enjoying your passions. Our two guests this week embody that.

Certainly, Ann Liguori has followed hers for a long time. She is the first female to host a call in talk show on the first all sports radio station WFAN in New York. She continues in her 24th year covering Majors for both golf and tennis on both WFAN and the CBS Radio Network.

We also welcome back recent Ben Hogan Award winner Maverick McNealy of Stanford who shares the passion as well. He has maintained that he may not go pro and stay an amateur.  He just loves the gemme. Maverick has been consistently ranked as the #1 or 2 amateur in the country. He was a three time nominee for the annual collegiate golfer of the year award and won the coveted Hogan award as he completed his senior year.

This past year McNealy won the Nike Collegiate at Colonial, which was his 11th victory at Stanford tying him with Tiger Woods and Patrick Rodgers. This season he averaged 69.7 in 29 competitive starts. He will be playing in the Arnold Palmer Cup June 9-12 @ Atlanta Athletic Club in an amateur Ryder Cup competition between the USA and Europe.

Pam Wood & myself tee it up with Ann & Maverick from our 19th hole this Saturday at 11 AM(CT) on FB Live.

We will chat with Ann about her book “A Passion for Golf, Celebrity Musings About the Game”. The book has some zesty info on Hollywood, music and sports.

Some names you might recognize who she’s interviewed include Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, Wilt Chamberlin, Jim Brown, Billie Jean King, Gordie Howe, Brett Favre. Kevin Costner, Sylvester Stallone, Celine Dion & Vince Gill to name a handful.

Ann was also an original host on the Golf Channel producing and hosting her own weekly show in prime time. She’s also covered 6 Olympic games.

We’ll also chat with her about her philanthropy work. This year she will again conduct her golf tournament that has raised over $1.5 million over the past 19 years. Her foundation focuses on cancer prevention, research and awareness.
