CAR DISPLAY’S PGA TOUR STYLE

Now that tax payers TARP money has been paid back and the economy is picking back up, we will see more of the car companies get back into bed with the PGA TOUR. Ten years ago there were 10 events sponsored by car companies. When things got bad a few years ago, it was not cool to spend money on a golf event. Car sponsorships dried up and ran for the hills. Different time and place today. I have hosted a few PGA TOUR events, like the Bob Hope Chyrsler Classic and the Ford Championship at Doral, and I have to say they spend the money to get their product on stage. Take a look at this video and see what goes into getting those cars and trucks ready to shine for Saturday and Sunday TV.

Actor Kyle MacLachlan talks with Turfunderground’s Eric von Hofen

I had the pleasure of spending some time on the golf course with Desperate Housewives star Kyle MacLachlan. This die hard golfer explained to me just how hooked on golf he really is. I asked him, when do you have time to play any golf? Kyle loves to get out and hit the links when he is not working on a TV or movie set. He has been in the movie business since 1984, starring in movies like Blue Velvet, with Dennis Hopper, Showgirls and in Oliver Stone’s movie, The Doors. His TV show resume is pretty strong as well. Kyle starred in 30 episodes of Twin Peaks in 1990-1991, 23 episodes of Sex in the City and 92 episodes of Desperate Housewives. Not to mention a handful of other TV shows and smaller movies over the years. Kyle and Eric taking a ride in the Ryder Cup Cart Kyle holds a low handicap and plays whenever he gets a chance in Los Angles or near his home in New York City. He works with a golf instructor on both coasts and it shows. Kyle plays in the PGA TOUR’S Bob Hope Classic in LaQuinta, California, which I had the pleasure of hosting at PGA WEST back in the late 1990’s. He plays across the pond in Scotland and gets a few rounds in at the Dunhill Matches. Not bad for a guy who is this busy. When he is not acting, being a husband and father, or golfing, he is out doing charity work for the Women’s Cancer Initiative, Eva’s Heroes, Live Earth and the Humane Society. As you can see in this picture, Kyle has a great setup and swing. He is truly a first-class guy and fun to be around. He is nothing like Orson Hodge. Kyle, thanks for your time and best of luck on the links.
