Golf Channel Taping at Glen Echo

Earlier in the golf season, producers from the Golf Channel had been at Glen Echo filming the course and interviewing staff.  Today they returned to finish shooting for " In Play with Jimmy Roberts" which will broadcast a segment on the Golf Channel the day after the close of The Winter Olympics.

  The program will discuss the Gold Medal Match Play Championship of the 1904 Olympics hosted at Glen Echo.  General Manager Rob Stewart discussed the club and the competition in today's interview.  Also on hand for an interview was Ross Wigle, great-grandson to champion George Lyon.  Ross is a member of The Hamilton Golf and Country Club in Ontario.  Needless to say, a proud member of the Lyon family and of his Great-Grandfather.
