The message has apparently been received. The new Back Nine Network will begin airing content this spring, attempting to breathe some new life into the game of golf. This appears to be a world class effort, lead by powerful and well-monied people, including Clint Eastwood.
Read about it in The Hollywood Reporter and the New York Post.
Back9 exhibited at the 2012 PGA Merchandise show, as shown in this YouTube video.
Back9 has a Facebook page.
You may also refer to the post by one of my favorite blogs, Chapeau Noir Golf.
Do you know how much time I spend watching the Golf Channel? It's entirely unhealthy, and largely unsatisfying (except the tournaments). If Back9 proves able to provide new, fresh content from the world of golf outside of the PGA, I will be completely stoked. Can you imagine? Keep your fingers crossed...
