Dave Kindred, an Atlanta native and a 1963 Illinois Wesleyan graduate, has been named the recipient of the 2010 Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) Lifetime Achievement Award in Journalism.
Kindred, who now lives in Locust Grove, Va., is the 21st individual to be selected, joining such notables as Bob Verdi, Jim McKay, Dan Jenkins and Jack Whitaker. He will be honored April 7 at the 38th Golf Writers Association of America annual spring dinner and awards ceremony in Augusta, Ga.
In announcing the award, PGA of America President Jim Remy said, “Dave Kindred’s career in sports journalism has been a journey of chronicling the highs and lows of many of golf’s greatest performers, and through his talent to tell a story within a story, he has truly inspired us.
“Of the many sports that Dave has covered worldwide, we are grateful for his love for the game of golf. His passion for the game has served readers for generations to better appreciate the game.”
