We came across several Tweets mentioning Conshohocken getting a shout out during Sunday’s broadcast of the PGA Tour’s Tournament of Champions from Hawaii. Apparently the Golf Channel’s Rich Lerner, who does play by play, stated “We are a long way from Conshohocken” when beauty shots of Maui were being shown.
Lerner grew up in Allentown and went to Temple. He now lives in Florida. We believe the broadcasters stayed at the Marriott in West Conshohocken when the US Open was played at Merion in 2013. That might be why he is familiar with Conshy.
We tried to find the video, with no luck (were not watching four hours of golf to find it either).
Here are the Tweets:
