    Highly recommend this job, especially for people that don't want to relocate right away.

    Kevin is awesome and will be very fun to work with. I applied for this position late last year but he forwarded on my information which led to me getting a similar job with the TOUR.

    Heckuva gig for a serious golf junkie. And Web.com Tour players are generally very media-friendly.
