COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Forecaddie has written a recent article in Golfweek announcing the departure of Commentator Kelly Tilghman from the Golf Channel.
Read here to learn of her emotional departure from the channel that she helped grow from it’s initial start. Tilghman was not only one of the first women in the booth, but the first who handled play-by-play duties.
I had the chance to go into the tower with her, Nick Faldo, Frank Nobilo and my friend Mark Rolfing at the Sony Open in 2009. She was the ultimate professional.
She formed a strong relationship with Golf Channel founder Arnold Palmer and had the honor of caddying for him in the annual par three event at Augusta on the Wednesday of the Masters.
