Bristol native and our very own PGA Tour Champions professional golfer Billy Andrade will be featured on the Golf Channel on July 5! The feature is part of a special profile on Billy and is a sneak peek into his life away from the golf course.
The show is called Champions Tour Learning Center and often includes professional tips and instruction straight from the legends of the game, the top senior players, plus a recap of recent Champions Tour play and a look ahead to upcoming event.
Billy introduces us to his passion away from golf when he goes clam digging with fellow Champions Tour player Michael Allen on the shoreline near Hog Island in Narragansett Bay.
The Golf Channel crew came to Rhode Island to film Billy clamming on the Bristol shoreline. Clamming was one of his favorite pastimes and a family tradition when he was a kid and he even still does it today every now and then in his spare time. The program also includes footage from a clam boil at Billy’s parents, John and Helen Andrade’s home in Bristol.
