GolfWRX adds Sara Brown as on-course reporter

Published

on

Symetra Tour player Sara Brown has agreed to become an on-course reporter for GolfWRX.com, the world’s largest online golf community.

Brown is best known as a two-time contestant on the Golf Channel’s Big Break (Sandals Resorts and Dominican Republic). She will travel with the GolfWRX team to select PGA Tour events in 2013 to interview PGA Tour players and star in GolfWRX’s “What’s in the Bag” videos.

“We look forward to a long-term relationship with Sara,” said Richard Audi, GolfWRX Co-Founder and President. “She’s been on our radar since we saw her on the Big Break in 2010. She’s a fan favorite, shares a great passion for the game and is a natural on camera.”

Brown, a Tucson, Ariz., native, played collegiate golf at Michigan State University, where she was honored as the university’s Female Athlete of the Year in 2007 and 2008.

She played on the LPGA Tour and Ladies European Tour events in 2011. In 2012, Brown competed on the Symetra Tour, and won her first professional tournament, The My Marsh Classic in Fishers, Ind., with rounds of 75-67-69.

“Working with GolfWRX is going to be amazing,” Brown said. “I just love that GolfWRX is willing to work around my playing schedule. I do want to play professionally and I am playing professionally, but after the Big Break I definitely saw myself doing something like this. It’s going to be great fun being on the PGA Tour with those guys. As a golfer, I want to talk to those guys and I want to know what clubs they’re playing.”

Audi said the decision to hire Brown as an on-course reporter is one of many components that will continue to improve the GolfWRX viewer experience. In the last year, the site has added more than 50 writers to its Featured Writers Program, which provides both amateur and professional journalists the opportunity to hone their skills and grow their exposure on GolfWRX’s front page.

“Our editorial army of writers has allowed us to grow at unprecedented levels,” Audi said. “In the last three months, we’ve see 40 percent growth in traffic. We’ve also had well over 2.7 million page views and 1 million unique views in January (2013).”

In the coming months, GolfWRX will be releasing its GolfWRX TV site, which will allow for the broadcasting of GolfWRX photos and videos as well the photos and videos of its readership.

    This is awesome. Funny thing is, I met her at a Cactus tour event today. Very nice girl, witty personality. I was actually there to support a friend playing and setting up more events for the Cactus tour. I think she will be an awesome addition to the Golf Wrx community.

10 interesting photos from Tuesday at the Fort Worth Invitational

Published

on

GolfWRX is on the ground at Marvin Leonard’s famed pet project, Colonial Country Club, peeking into players bags and taking in the action on the driving range.

While you’ll want to take a trip through the buffet line, we’ve made you a plate of some of the tastiest morsels.

Absolutely savage new putter cover for Jon “Rahmbo” Rahm. Just killer.

Prettier than a new penny.

Spotted: Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI

Everything here is excellent. Just excellent.

More like Garsen Murray. Am I right?

If you were Aaron Wise standing over the winning putt at last week’s Byron Nelson, this is what it’d have looked like (of course, you’d have had a ball and the putter would be soled on the green, but you get the point…)

Abraham Ancer’s new Artisan wedges are simply incredible… All of this: Artisan star stellar stuff.

Rickie Fowler has gone grape.

You can’t fool me. You’re not Adam Hadwin, you’re a golf bag.

Is Patrick Cantlay considering a switch to a Cameron Napa?

GolfWRX is on the ground at Marvin Leonard’s famed pet project, Colonial Country Club, peeking into players bags and taking in the action on the driving range.

In addition to a gallery of photos from Misery Hill, we have WITB looks at Chad Campbell, Sung Kang, and Si-Woo Kim’s golf bags.

While you’ll want to take a trip through the buffet line, we’ve made you a plate of some of the tastiest morsels.

Welcome to the silver side, Maverick McNealy.

Only appropriate for their to be Hogans at Colonial. J.J. Henry does the honors.

Colonial stalwart Keith Clearwater with an Acculock Ace putter in the bag.

Si-Woo Kim’s driver has an “under construction” aesthetic. Love it.

Abraham Ancer may have the only grafitti-inspired bag font on Tour.

Tidy stuff.

Sung Kang: Going dual drivers this week or testing Tensei Orange vs. Tensei White?

A.B.C. How about this new Odyssey putter cover?

Chad Campbell is still rocking the TaylorMade Burner TP 5-wood!

…and Adams Idea Black irons with a strip of lead tape. Swoon.
