CRAIG IS EVP

Sure we took notice when this press release came out but no, the Senior Editor of Capitalareagolf.com did not get the gig. Besides, do you want to move to Chicago in the winter? From Australia?

But we do like the description of this guy: “Craig’s remarkable experience in the golf business aims to strengthen Tour Edge’s position in the marketplace, and build upon a distinguished 30-year history.”
