GOLFPASS OFFERS INSIDE-THE-ROPES ‘PLAYING LESSONS’ WITH 2020 PGA CHAMPION COLLIN MORIKAWA
Playing Lessons Episode with Host Jim “Bones” Mackay Available on GolfPass Today
ORLANDO, Fla. (Aug. 10, 2020) – In celebration of Collin Morikawa’s first major championship victory, GolfPass is offering its members a chance to go inside the ropes and inside the mind of the 2020 PGA Championship winner during a practice round on a special encore episode of GOLF Channel’s Playing Lessons series.
In the episode, Morikawa is joined by legendary caddie and NBC on-course reporter Jim “Bones” Mackay for a one-on-one conversation from tee to green, during which the two discuss swing tips, shot selection and course management. The episode was shot on location in October 2019 at the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort.
