"Since founding Golf Advisor in 2014, the site has grown dramatically to become the number-one course rating and review platform in the game. Golfer's opinions are complemented with a veteran staff of writers, including Matt Ginella, Bradley Klein and Brandon Tucker, that provide expert travel advice on how to maximize your experience," said Mike Lowe, vice president and general manager, Golf Advisor. "Now, we are excited to be elevating the brand and its offerings to not only showcase some of the most exciting golf destinations in th world on Golf Channel, but also to allow the traveling golfer to come along with us."

Premiering May 2 at 8 p.m. ET, Golf Advisor Round Trip, will be a 30-minute series taking viewers around the world to showcase amazing golfing destinations. Matt Ginella, who has traveled more than a million miles since he began reporting for Golf Channel in 2013, will serve as series host and become Golf Advisor's Editor-at-Large.

Sam Snead and Tiger Woods are the two winningest golfers in PGA TOUR history. But while Snead cleaned up in North Carolina, posting 10 of his career 82 wins in the state, Woods counts just one win in the Tar Heel State among his 79 victories.

It came in 2007 at Quail Hollow, the Charlotte course he will play again this week at the Wells Fargo Championship. Shooting a final-round 69 that matched the low round of the day – and included a 57-foot eagle putt on the seventh hole -- Woods won by two strokes over Steve Stricker in a season that would eventually end with him winning the inaugural FedExCup.

The Zurich Classic of New Orleans over the weekend featured a fun format we only see once a year on the PGA Tour -- two-man teams with two rounds of alternate shot and two rounds of best ball.

It's similar to the Ryder Cup, but not exactly the same... The Zurich Classic is still a stroke-play event, so the players are putting everything out and they're not head-to-head match ups like the Ryder Cup.
