Bob Brown

If I were hiring, Andrew Szunyog, Tournament Operations for the Sun Country Golf House, would be at the top of my list.  

My name is Bob Brown and I've worked in the Media for 30 years ( 25-plus years as a TV Sportscaster and now the host of a Sports Talk Radio Show)  

Working with Andrew on various events over the past several years has been easy. He's friendly and always prepared and that has made my job much easier. He's also someone I can count on. Whether that has meant getting me the information I need or lining up that special interview. He's also proven to be very knowledgeable when it comes to the international, national or even more importantly the 'local' golf scene here in New Mexico and that has been extremely beneficial.  

If you'd like to discuss Andrew in more detail, don't hesitate to get in touch with me.
