New Florida golf blog debuts on

New sports writer Jason Dill has just lanched his blog:

"The Golf Coast"

As Jason notes on his blog introduction, Florida is the golf capital of America -- so he'll have plenty to write about. His blog will be instructional, insightful and, at times, a bit gossipy with local and national buzz. He also plans to add a poll in the near future.

I checked in with Jason this morning for the latest, and he was on his way to cover the seventh annual Laurel Oak Cup (benefiting the Special Olympics) in Sarasota. The event is a chapter event for the North Florida PGA's Southwest Chapter, so there will be about 10-15 club professionals from Manatee County playing, he reports.

And he had this tidbit to share:
Locally, reigning U.S. Amateur champion, Byeong-Hun An, was invited to play in the Masters (arguably the biggest pro event around) as well as the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando in a couple weeks. Depending what happens with Tiger Woods, An might be teeing it up in Tiger's return to golf tournament.

So with Jason's beefed-up golf coverage, our golfing report in print and here on is about to get a lot more interesting.

Ideas? We'd love to hear from you.
