If this page looks a bit different than what you’re used to seeing, your eyes are not deceiving you.
Welcome to the redesigned Lone Star Golf.
More than a year ago, the TGA and our digital magazine production partner, Global Golf Post, began planning the redesign. We had two main goals.
First, we wanted to create a dynamic and brilliant reader experience. While you’re still able to navigate horizontally from page to page through each issue, the biggest change you’ll see is the ability to view content on each page by scrolling downward. This allows us to use a slightly larger typeface, which makes reading easier. We hope this modern, web-like approach to content presentation improves your Lone Star Golf experience.
Secondly – this is the exciting part – the new and improved Lone Star Golf is responsively designed to be read more easily on all digital devices, most notably on your smartphone, but also on tablets, laptops and desktop monitors. This progressive upgrade makes it simple to stay connected to the TGA during your busy, on-the-go lifestyle.
While the look and functionality of Lone Star Golf has changed, what remains the same is our commitment to deliver all the pertinent TGA news, features, championship previews, contests and multimedia content for golfers of all skill levels and ages.
“Since we started Lone Star Golf in 2014, our goal has been to provide TGA Members with a cutting-edge digital magazine loaded with exclusive, can’t-miss content,” said Mark Button, the TGA’s Senior Director of Communications. “We strive to produce compelling content for every type of golfer in each issue. This new format looks great on mobile devices and will enhance the overall reader experience.”
We’re excited about our magazine’s improvements and hope you like them, too. Special thanks to the Global Golf Post staff for its hard work and collaboration in bringing the redesign to life.
“Our goal in the year-long transformation effort was to take advantage of advancements in the art and science of digital magazine publishing that have occurred since we first launched and to provide an enhanced user experience,” said Global Golf Post founder and publisher Jim Nugent.
If you have story ideas or comments on the new design, we’d love to hear from you. Thanks, and enjoy this month’s issue!
