READING, Pa., and Orlando, Fla., April 28, 2016 Penske, a leading transportation and logistics solutions provider, has teamed up with Golf Channel for a new #MovingDay Presented by Penske multi-platform branding campaign that encompasses Golf Channel's coverage of "moving day" across the world's professional golf schedule each week this season.
