For years people have asked me who my favorite players to interview are, @jonrahm is always at the top of that list because of his candor and perspective. Today was no exception. Please don’t let an uncomfortable situation take away from his message. Like so many others around the world, Rahm talked about dealing with loss, the birth of new life & not being able to grieve or celebrate in connection with others during those vulnerable times. What he has accomplished & what he has fought through is tremendous. On so many levels. Congrats to our new World Number One ☝️
Amanda grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in a family that was mad about sports and this pushed her to try out various sports in her childhood including golf.
Her grandparents actually met and fell in love while playing golf and her parents also played golf extensively, almost every day naturally pushing her towards the sport.
Amanda played her first round of golf at 9 years old and she went on to play junior golf for a number of years but she lamented having to carry her own bags in a recent interview with Golf Digest.
“I played junior golf for a few years, my parents loved playing with me, but the minute I had to carry my own bag and walk nine holes by myself, I was like, ‘Eh, you know what, I’m gonna go join the swim team,”
Amanda would go on to excel at Volleyball through highschool and would continue to play through college until she got the opportunity to pursue her dream of becoming a sports broadcaster by attending Hofstra University in New York to study sports journalism.
She worked for various college newspapers and worked various internships including ABC News and CBS 2 before graduating from the college and pursuing her broadcasting career in 2008.
Career To Date
Amanda is well know for interviewing to top golf stars such as Rickie Fowler nowadays and while her rise to the top was quick, it started out on a less glamorous scale.
Amanda got her first real experience reporting for a Verizon Channel 1 where she covered high school sports before moving onto the MSG network where she also covered high school sport especially her number 1 sport in volley ball.
In 2011 Amanda started working in house on the PGA tour where she produce tournament highlights and reported on events until she got another break in 2016 when she joined Callaway as an in house reporter.

Amanda Balionis can certainly play golf but it must said that she is more likely to be considered a hacker than appearing on the golf tour herself any time soon.
She stated recently on the golf and girls podcast that she is happy to shoot anything under 100 and that her game has improved allowed after getting swing advice from CBS expert Peter Kostis.
“I bring my clubs with me on the road now, and we went to a range behind a course one day. I was just gonna hit some balls, and Peter Kostis just happened to be there working on his own game. And in true Kostis fashion, he looked at my swing and said, ‘We have a lot of work to do.’ And he proceeded to give me the most gruelling hour lesson I’ve ever had. I was drenched in sweat, and now I have a million things to work on, but it was so much fun.”
