SILVER SPRING, Md. — Golf News Net is proud to announce a new partnership with Ryan French, whose stories covering Monday qualifiers and players on developmental and mini-tours worldwide have captivated social media audiences.
Starting Dec. 1, French will create, develop and publish content which will exclusively be available to Golf News Net’s GNN Plus members.
In a short period of time, French has become a social media sensation. Since he started his Monday Q Info account, @acaseofthegolf1, he has amassed a Twitter folllowing of nearly 25,000 diehard golf fans who crave stories often ignored by broader media. For GNN Plus members, French will share player interviews, features on players chasing their dreams, dig into the business side for up-and-coming players, and he’ll talk to family members of developmental tour players to understand the grind they face, too.
In addition to French’s storytelling and analysis, he will publish anonymous player blogs talking about life on and off the course, and French will edit blog entries from a veteran caddie on the Korn Ferry Tour.
GNN Plus will also become a one-stop shop for full schedules and results from developmental tours around the world.
“I am so excited to partner with Ryan and GNN,” French said. “It really is a dream come true to do something I am passionate about; I can’t wait to get started.”
For Golf News Net founder Ryan Ballengee, working with French is a vision come to life.
“Ryan has brought so many remarkable and captivating stories to life through his social media presence, and he’s connected with thousands of golf fans,” Ballengee said. “I’m thrilled GNN Plus can be the home for Ryan’s content and to be part of his journey into working in golf full-time.”
Fans can sign up for GNN Plus for $5 per month or $50 per year and receive full access to French’s content with an ad-free experience. In addition, GNN Plus members will get access to commentary and reporting from the Golf News Net team just for subscribers.
