Golf World goes digital after 67 years in print


After 67 years in print, Golf World announced Wednesday that it will switch to an all-digital publication beginning July 28.

The magazine, which previously was printed 31 times per year, will now be distributed electronically 50 times per year on Monday mornings.

"With the sports news cycle demanding immediate access to quality content, we now will offer more of what our audience wants, when they want it and where they want to get it," read a staff report announcing the changes.

Originally published in 1947, Golf World is the oldest golf magazine in America and currently serves as the news branch of Golf Digest, a monthly publication. Both entities are owned by Conde Nast.

The final print edition of the publication ran following the Open Championship, with Rory McIlroy gracing the last cover after his two-shot victory at Royal Liverpool.
