Charlie Rymer Returns to the World Am!

charlie gcTelevision personality Charlie Rymer’s star in the golf media business has continued to ascend in recent years, and through his rise, Rymer has a remained a friend of the Myrtle Beach World Amateur Handicap Championship.

One of Golf Channel’s most prominent personalities, Rymer will be appearing at the World’s Largest 19th Hole on Monday and Tuesday nights of tournament week. Rymer will join fellow television personality Win McMurry and national golf radio hosts Brian Katrek and John Maginnes at this year’s tournament.

A former host of the Golf Channel shows Big Break and Road Trip: Myrtle Beach, Rymer, who joined Golf Channel in 2008, now serves as a co-host of Morning Drive, the network’s daily news and lifestyle program.

Rymer also contributes to the network’s coverage of the Drive, Chip and Putt Championships and Golf Central’s coverage of the NCAA Golf Championships. He has grown to develop a likeable reputation for his quick wit and “down home” humor on air.

Rymer will emcee the 19th Hole activities, regale tournament participants with stories from behind the scenes on the PGA Tour, and take questions from the crowd.

The World Am will be played August 31 – September 4 on 55+ Myrtle Beach area golf courses. The 72-hole net stroke play tournament is open all golfers with a verifiable USGA handicap, and entry includes access to the World's Largest 19th Hole where free food, drinks, live entertainment and a golf expo are among the attractions.

More than 3,500 players from all 50 states and 25 foreign countries are expected to participate. Players are divided into five divisions based on gender, age and handicap.

At the conclusion of four rounds of competition, all flight winners and ties advance to the World Championship Playoff at Barefoot Resort’s Dye Club.
