John Daly to Join World Series of Golf®

as Vice President of Broadcast Operations

LAS VEGAS (Oct. 7, 2009) – Veteran television host and journalist John Daly has been named vice president of broadcast operations for the World Series of Golf (www.worldseriesofgolf.com).

Daly, best known as the longtime host of “Real TV,” will oversee all of the company’s television and Internet productions and serve as the event’s on-camera host and commentator. Daly also will create new television formats for the World Series of Golf game and act as a company spokesman.

“I played in the 2008 World Series of Golf and loved it so much that I had to join the company,” Daly joked. “I couldn’t ask for a job that better fits my skills and life-long passions. I have always dreamed of combining my broadcasting experience with my love of golf.”

A 20-year Las Vegas resident, Daly hosted “Real TV,” the first all-video news magazine program that was distributed by Paramount Domestic Television. The show is still running today and, at its peak in 1998, was averaging 4 million viewers per night. “Real TV” has aired in more than 30 countries.

Daly also has hosted “House Detective,” a home inspection show on HGTV. Before moving to national television, Daly was the main news anchor and newsroom managing editor for KTNV-TV in Las Vegas for six years. Three of the newscasts that Daly anchored won regional Emmy Awards.

“John is a true professional whose expertise will enhance our television product and help introduce our namesake event to an increasing audience through traditional broadcast and new media initiatives,” said World Series of Golf Chief Executive Officer Joe Martinez. “As we continue to build our corporate leadership team, John will play an integral role in the company’s future growth.”

The World Series of Golf is open to all amateur golfers age 21 and older. The proprietary method of play (www.worldseriesofgolf.com/overview.aspx) incorporates a $10,000 entry fee. Players ante at each tee box; after teeing off in a pre-determined order, they have the option to call or raise the bets of competitors in their pairing, or to fold the hole. Players who fold lose any bets they have committed to the pot and rejoin play on the next tee.

Players who remain in the action continue to bet prior to each subsequent shot, building the pot as they move from the tee to the green. The player who wins the hole – either by stroke count or by forcing his or her competitors to fold – wins the pot.

Players are eliminated when their $10,000 purse is exhausted or so depleted they cannot pay the ante on the next tee. Players who win their initial pairing advance to the tournament’s second round and recoup their $10,000 buy-in. Players who win their second-round pairing advance to the final round and are guaranteed a cash prize of at least $30,000. The winner of the event receives a cash prize of $300,000.

The Mirage Hotel & Casino (www.mirage.com) serves as the host hotel for the World Series of Golf.

The stats apparently do lie. With Tiger in the lead coming into the final day at Hazeltine, he lost. It was something that has never happened before. Y.E. Yang not only broke that streak, he also became the first Asian to win a men’s major tournament. Congrats to Y.E. Yang.
