The announcement comes on the eve of Colorado AvidGolfer magazine's July issue, its 100th.

"It's about bringing it all together under the CAG brand and wholly representing that brand's high standards, creating audience engagement across all platforms and devices, and making the site scalable to ensure the brand's future success."
