You see them in front of the camera reporting golf scores and news, but here's a quick look at some of Golf Channel's on-air talent behind closed doors. This week it's Kelly Tilghman, a member of Golf Channel’s original cast and one of the network’s most versatile anchors.
Tilghman grew up in North Myrtle Beach, S.C., where her family owned and operated a golf course for 22 years. She earned a scholarship to play on the Duke University women’s golf team and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and History. From 1992-96, Tilghman played professional golf in Australia, Europe and Asia, and served as a teaching and touring pro.
Favorite all-time movie? "Airplane," "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," and "Rudy"
Dream golf vacation? The United Kingdom
What's the hardest thing about being a broadcaster? Maintaining a routine – the travel and the hours can be all over the place.
Favorite word to slip into broadcast? It must be 'golf'. I say it about 100 times a show.
What is a little-known secret about doing TV? That Charlie Rymer is actually short and skinny. The camera adds inches and lbs.
Funniest co-worker at Golf Channel? Feherty. He's funny ha-ha and funny strange.
