Famous English alum to receive another big award

Dave Kindred (’63), widely regarded as his generation’s most accomplished print sportswriter, will be able to add another major award to his shelf come April 7 . . . and it’s not a leg lamp.

Kindred, who previously won the Red Smith Award—sports journalism’s highest honor— will be feted at a ceremony in Augusta, Ga. with the 2010 Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) Lifetime Achievement Award in Journalism.

“Of the many sports that Dave has covered worldwide, we are grateful for his love for the game of golf, said PGA of America president Jim Remy in a press release. “His passion for the game has served readers for generations to better appreciate the game.”

Kindred has written sports articles and columns for 45 years. He’s been a Washington correspondent, sports columnist, and a fixture at Sporting News and other publications, including Golf Digest. He’s also the author of numerous books, among them Glove Stories: The Collected Baseball Writings of Dave Kindred (2002); Sound and Fury: Two Powerful Lives, One Fateful Friendship (2006), about the Howard Cosell/Muhammad Ali friendship; and the upcoming Morning Miracle: Inside the Washington Post: A Great Newspaper Fights for Its Life.
