Toledo Men’s Golf Coach Jamie Broce will be among several individuals profiled this weekend on “The Road to the PGA Championship,” a documentary-style look at eight competitors who will participate in the 96th PGA Championship Thursday through Sunday, Aug. 7-10.The show will be televised nationally on CBS Sunday, July 27, from 2 to 3 p.m., with three separate rebroadcasts on the Golf Channel: Wednesday, July 30, at 11 p.m.; Thursday, July 31, at 12:30 a.m.; and Monday, Aug. 4, at 9 a.m.
Broce qualified for this year’s PGA Championship to be held at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky., with a runner-up showing at the 47th PGA Professional National Championship June 22-25 in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Broce, who will be entering his third season at the helm of the Rockets’ program, has guided Toledo to second-place showings at the MAC Championship in each of his first two seasons at the UT helm.
In addition to Broce, three PGA teaching professionals — 1996 PGA Teacher of the Year Chuck Cook, Cameron McCormick and Mike Kehoe — who have guided three of the game’s current stars — Jason Dufner, Jordan Spieth and J.B. Holmes — will be featured.
The special also chronicles the unique journey of PGA Professional National Champion Michael Block (Aliso Viejo, Calif.), as well as Stuart Deane (Arlington, Texas), Johan Kok (Nashville, Tenn) and Aaron Krueger (Norwalk, Iowa).
