Fine Living TV Network's Series THE WANDERING GOLFER

By SOP newswire

Former Trump golf pro, 30-year-old Gia Bocra landed every golfer’s ultimate dream job as the new host of the popular FINE LIVING TV NETWORK series The Wandering Golfer.  Bocra beat out over 1,500 hopefuls following a three-month long nationwide search and defeated three other finalists with what judges called “the most beautiful swing they’d ever seen" to become the new Wandering Golfer. And on Sunday, April 15 at 8 pm ET/PT, viewers will get a first look at Gia as she embarks on her global golfing adventures.   This half-hour, weekly series will continue to air regularly on Sundays at 8pm ET/PT. 

Commenting on Bocra’s newest gig, former employer Donald Trump said: “Gia was a Trump apprentice in the true sense of the word. She was a tremendous asset to our club in Bedminster and, although I’m sad to see her go, I see this as a tremendous opportunity and the perfect fit for someone whose love of golf was evident from the minute I met her."

Bocra will putt around the globe some of the world’s greatest golf destinations where she will explore the sport, its history and culture, and tell stories about the extraordinary people she encounters along the way. First on the map is the top-ranked Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, NJ, where Bocra most recently served as an LPGA Teaching Professional.  From there, she takes viewers to some of the best golf courses around the world including PGA National in West Palm Beach, Florida; Bay Hill in Orlando, Florida; The Four Seasons Golf Club in Costa Rica; New South Wales Golf Club in Sydney, Australia; and Cape Kidnappers in New Zealand.  

About her new TV role, Bocra says, “My goal is to communicate golf and the golf lifestyle to all ages and to all ability levels, and to show that you can have a feminine flair on the golf course no matter how you play."
