Really happy to have Dave Kindred on the Golfcast with us today. Kindred recently won the PGA's Lifetime Achievement Award in golf writing, and if you're interested at all in sports, golf or the craft of writing, you owe it to yourself to check him out.

Start with the most recent and work backward -- he writes every week at the National Sports Journalism Center, and you could get a pretty good education in how to be a sportswriter just from reading his columns. The golf aficionados among you ought to check out his regular columns at Golf Digest. We make specific reference to his famous feature on Jacqueline Gagne, the woman who claimed to have dropped 16 holes-in-one in six months, so you might want to check that out in advance by clicking here. Kindred's among the best writers we've got, and I think you'll enjoy his conversation and perspective as well. We discuss everything from the joys of covering majors to the role of websites versus newspapers to the way a writer finds his own voice. His next book, due out in July, is entitled "Morning Miracle" and tells the story of the long, slow decline of The Washington Post.

As always, we welcome your thoughts, ideas, and recommendations on the podcast. Hit me up at jay.busbee@yahoo.com.
