You've probably noticed that Annabel Rolley hasn't appeared on the Golf Channel in a while. Alas, it's true: Rolley and the Golf Channel have parted ways. That's disappointing - Annabel is one of the most knowledgeable, personable and watchable people in golf.
But the good news is she has a new gig working with the Australian edition of Golf Digest. Annabel announced it in an Instagram post a few days ago, writing:
"Proud to announce I will now be writing for Golf Digest and will be creating video content for them regularly."
Annabel last appeared on the Golf Channel in December. Afterward she headed back home to Australia and we've been keeping up with her on social media since then. Some of her posts include short instructional clips, for example:
What happened with the Golf Channel? What, unfortunately, happens all the time in TV: The end of a contract, the end of a relationship. Very surprising in Rolley's case, given her popularity and profile - given her name, and given that face.
But Annabel is not looking back.
"That's TV ... I have no hard feelings," she told Golf Babes. "I still have a good relationship with them."
And what about her new gig with Australian Golf Digest - could we see her in the U.S. edition and other international editions, too? I'll be surprised if that doesn't eventually happen. Golf Digest would be crazy not to put Rolley in every edition it can. But her deal, for now, is only with her home country's edition. So we'll have to wait and see.
Regardless, there's no doubt Annabel will do a great job in print and on video in her new role. And now we all know where to find her again.
