    Anyone have a ballpark as to what this might pay?
  3. Right around 31,000 is my (fairly) educated guess.

    Interviewed there before. Great group of people at Golfweek, and the web group is heavily int junior and college golf. If you don't know anything about the AJGA or college programs, good luck. That's their bread and butter . . . so don't have any dreams about covering Tiger if you get this.

    But if you do manage to keep the job long enough, there may be the possibility of covering Charlie Axel Woods.
