The Golfer

golfercover.jpgGeoff is named again by The Golfer magazine as one of modern golf's ten most influential writers. They write:

"The finest writers are modern day alchemists magically transforming the sensory static of a blank page to allow us to experience the immediacy of sport from a world away--to smell the sweet azaleas and fragrant pine, feel the sponginess of the grass on a walk up the final fairway and hear the buzz of the crowd crescendo to an ear-splitting toar as the winning putt drops from our view." 

And here's the list:

Michael Bamberger
James Dodson
John Feinstein
James Finegan
Mark Frost
Dan Jenkins
David Owen
Lorne Rubenstein
Geoff Shackelford
John Updike
