Personal life of PGA Tour's first female lead golf announcer, Kelly Tilghman, revealed

Kelly Tilghman is a broadcaster for The Golf Channel who became the first female lead golf announcer in 2007 PGA Tour. She was born to Katherine Tilghman and Phil Tilghman on August 6, 1969, in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, U.S.

Kelly played some college golf at Duke University before working as a course reporter for The Golf Channel. Listening to a lady's voice calling and coordinating the activity surprisingly appeared to be awkward and unpleasant to golf's traditions. But later in 2007, The Golf Channel took a chance with Tilghman's ability, mind and demonstrable skill to make her the first female lead golf announcer. With no doubts, she worked with the passion for her profession and thanks to viewers for the response they gave to a hard-worker.
