GOLF JUICE | SKY SPORTS
The first episode of Sky Sports’ new weekly magazine show Golf Juice starts next Wednesday as the company looks to engage and excite new and existing golf fans.
The programme will be filmed in front of a live audience and will feature all the latest news and views from the world of golf, alongside guests from sport, music and entertainment.
Golf Juice is the latest venture from Sky Sports as they look to improve their coverage of the sport. The broadcaster was pivotal in the return of the British Masters to the European Tour for the first time in seven years, while the ‘Sky Sports Thursday’ initiative meant more than 15,000 tickets were available for free for the opening round at Woburn Golf Club.
"Golf Juice is a going to be a vibrant, entertaining and energetic golf show" - Jason Wessely

It will appeal to all ages and there will be plenty for new and regular golfers every week. We’re delighted it will be on Sky Sports in a regular slot on Wednesday nights and it will complement our unrivalled schedule of live golf.”
The quartet of Jimmy Bullard, Zoe Hardman, DJ Spoony and YouTube sensation Mark Crossfield will host the series in front of a live audience at TopGolf in Watford.
The presenters and the guests will take a look at the biggest stories in the golfing world as well as testing out the latest equipment. Trick shot artist Geoff Swain will be showing off his skills each week and roving reporter Cara Robinson will keep viewers updated on golfing news from around the globe.

No matter what your level of interest or even if you have none at all, Golf Juice will look to entertain, inspire, inform and engage.”
