Len Ziehm, Golf Travel Writers of America memberLen Ziehm is entering his 50th year writing on golf, the first piece being a report on the 1968 Western Open at Olympia Fields for the Hammond (Ind.) Times.

Len spent 41 years with the Chicago Sun-Times as golf columnist. He also covered a wide variety of other sports – beat writer on Northwestern University sports for 11 years, beat writer on the Chicago Blackhawks for nine years, beat writer on Chicago soccer teams – Sting and Fire – for 26 years.

Golf travel writing started with the Chicago Sun-Times and also included freelance pieces, primarily for Chicagoland Golf (from its founding in 1989) and Chicago District Golfer.
