SwingU announced as presenting sponsor of Peter Kostis & Gary McCord’s new video podcast

HARTFORD – Wednesday, March 1, 2023 – SwingU, the golf technology and media company, announced today that it has partnered with Peter Kostis, Gary McCord and Mike Abram to be the presenting sponsor of Kostis & McCord - Off Their Rockers, a new golf video podcast. 

The podcast will debut on March 2, 2023.

The two former broadcast partners have teamed up once again, this time to provide commentary, interviews, entertainment and swing help for golfers of all levels on their weekly show. 

"We can finally share all the untold feuds, fights, laughs and secrets that we had to keep quiet for all those years!” said Kostis, a former on-course reporter and one of the best instructors in the game. “It’ll be a blast to be able to tell those previously off-limit stories and have more than six seconds to do it.” 

"Let’s face it, we've pretty much seen it all in our decades of playing, teaching, calling the action, and now we're ready to bring fans inside the ropes and behind the scenes with no holds barred."

Co-host Mike Abram, a longtime golf television and commercial producer, will join Kostis and McCord on the show, which promises to be both entertaining and informative. 

"Peter and Gary are two of the most original and engaging golf personalities of all time," said Abram. "Their sense of humor, experience and knowledge of the game and a guest lineup of some of their star-studded group of famous friends and elite golfers will make Off Their Rockers a must-watch for golf fans everywhere."

McCord, who played in over 400 PGA Tour events, won twice on the PGA Tour Champions and left the broadcast booth in 2020 has been looking for something to do in his free time.

“Bottom line, I’m bored, retirement sucks and I can only play so much golf,” said McCord. “So, when Mike came to Peter and me and said we could do a video podcast and say and do anything we wanted with no rules, I said, ‘I’m in, let’s go!’”

Presented by SwingU, Kostis & McCord – Off Their Rockers will debut exclusively on SwingU’s Clubhouse website and newsletter.

The video podcast will be available shortly thereafter on YouTube and available in audio form wherever you get your podcasts.
