Travel is on the minds of people the world over because travel means visiting and/or reading about exciting new places, meeting interesting people and learning new things.

50-State Golf Tour
Golfing the U.S. with Chuck Miller, The Traveling Guy, was a new concept in golf and travel reporting when it debuted on the nationally syndicated golf show Real Golf Radio on January 7, 2012. Each Saturday morning through December 15, 2012, I reported live from a different state as I traveled and played golf throughout the U.S.
I brought Real Golf Radio listeners upbeat and informative reports about golf and points of interest in each of the fifty states I was visiting. My reports helped listeners conjure up fantasies of birdies and pars and gave those in Real Golf Radio’s vast listening audience the opportunity to vicariously visit all 50 states.
During my fifty-week, fifty-state driving golf tour, I reported about my experiences visiting and playing golf from Alaska to Florida, Hawaii to Maine. All but three courses I reported on were open for public play. Some were in the mountains, some at the seashore, some were in urban areas and some were in the desert. Some were municipal courses, some were resort courses. A few were private courses open to the public on specific days.
My reports appealed to both golfers and male and female non-golfing companions as they included snippets of information about local, cultural, and scenic spots as well as tips on places to stay, shop, dine and just have fun. They gave Golfing the U.S. with Chuck Miller The Traveling Guylisteners insight into golf and travel throughout the United States.
