George Peper, editor of LINKS Magazine, is being honored by the PGA of America with its 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award in Journalism. The formal presentation will be on Wednesday of Masters week at the annual awards dinner of the Golf Writers Association of America.
Before becoming editor of LINKS in 2011, Peper was editor-in-chief of GOLF Magazine for 25 years, and has written more than 20 books including Golf Courses of the PGA Tour and Two Years in St. Andrews; co-authored books with Bill Murray and Greg Norman; and edited Golf in America: The First 100 Years and The World’s 500 Best Golf Holes. He also earned an Emmy nomination for his script of the PBS documentary “The Story of Golf.”
“George is a true friend of the game who has enlightened us with his passion, candor, and wit,” said PGA President Derek Sprague. “We are fortunate he chose our sport to immortalize.” All of us at LINKS feel the same way.
