Dave Kindred is the recipient of sports journalism’s highest honor, the Red Smith Award. Kindred is a member of the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association Hall of Fame. The PGA of America awarded Dave its Lifetime Achievement in Journalism Award.

Kindred is the author of nine books and has written and reported for the Washington Post, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Sporting News, Golf Digest and many other publications.
