I’m originally from Lewiston, N.Y., and am a graduate of Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh, Pa., where I played on the women’s golf team. I have also earned a Graduate Certificate degree in Social Media from the University of Florida.

Currently, I am an associate editor for The Post.

Mike Cullity fell for golf in his youth and has been writing about the game for the better part of two decades. A former city high-school champion who played briefly at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass., Cullity earned a master’s degree from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism before joining the staff of Golfweek in 1995. Before Global Golf Post hired him in 2013, he wrote about golf for several other prominent publications, including Golf Digest, Golf World, the Masters Journal and the Boston Globe Magazine. Working from his home in New England, Cullity strives to return his handicap to single digits while navigating the challenges of fatherhood and a short season.
Fun Fact: Was once 5 under through 10 holes ... and shot 74.
Favorite Courses: That I've played: Bandon Dunes. That I want to play: Augusta National.
When it became clear a career as an orthopedic surgeon wasn't going to happen due to academic realities, I followed my father into the newspaper business where I spent more than 30 years as a sports writer, most of them with the Charlotte Observer, before joining Global Golf Post. I've written extensively about everyone from Michael Jordan to Dale Earnhardt to Tiger Woods and golf has always been my favorite subject because of the people, the places and the passion.
Fun Fact: The first golf tournament I saw in person was the last PGA Tour event Sam Snead won -- the 1965 Greater Greensboro Open.
Favorite Courses: Favorite I've played: Augusta National. Course I most want to play: Shinnecock Hills.
Steve Eubanks is a New York Times bestselling author and award-winning columnist. A former college golfer, he is now happy with his 4 handicap, his senior-golfer status, and the fact that his daughter beats him (and outdrives him) on a regular basis. A noted speaker, teacher and lecturer, Steve gave the keynote address at the 2007 Joint Forces Reserve Orientation Course, Command Second Fleet in Norfolk, Vir. He lives in Peachtree City, Georgia with his wife, children and an revolving assortment of dogs and cats.
Fun Fact: Steve was the worst caddie on the LPGA Tour during a brief stint looping for Laura Baugh.
Favorite Courses: Cypress Point and Seminole. Nothing else comes close.
A 2014 graduate of NC State's PGA Golf Management program, I spent two and a half years as a golf writer for our school's daily paper while becoming a Best Practice writer and Social Media Developer at PGA Magazine for three years. I am now a PGA Professional and work as the Reader Engagement Coordinator for The Post.
Fun Fact: I was convinced to start playing golf after watching Tiger battle Bob May in the 2000 PGA Championship.

I have been writing professionally since 1978, when I sold my first magazine article, on forest fire fighters who rappelled into blazes from helicopters, when I was studying at the University of Oregon's School of Journalism. Shortly after earning my BA there, I took a job as a reporter at the Burlington Free Press in Vermont, beginning work on the city beat the night now-U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders was elected mayor of the Queen City. In 1982, I joined Time Inc., toiling first as a reporter for Fortune magazine and then as a writer-reporter for Sports Illustrated. Golf became the primary focus of my professional life when I became a senior writer for Golfweek in 1999. And in the fall of 2009, I became a member of the original staff of Global Golf Post. Over the years, I have reported on the game from five continents and been honored by the Golf Writers Association of America for my work 10 times, and by the International Network of Golf on 21 occasions. From Turnberry to Tasmania was my 19th book, and it was released in 2015. My 20th book, a history of the MIsquamicut Club in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, is due to be published in the summer of 2017.
Fun Fact: Next to golf, my favorite sport is duck hunting. And I feel sure that if I had not become a writer, I would have happily gone to work as a hunting guide in some faraway place like Alaska. Or Argentina.
Handicap: Index is now 5.3. I once boasted a number below 3.0. Alas, those days are long gone.
Favorite Courses: The Old Course in St. Andrews, for its history and feel. Augusta National, for its awesome ambience. Cypress Point, for the extraordinary sights and sounds there. Royal Dornoch, for the sheer whimsy of the setting and the chance to enjoy Donald Ross's home course. And the National Golf Links, for being perhaps the greatest match-play course in the world as well as the place that introduced Americans to traditional, links-style golf. The Course I Most Want To Play is Leopard Creek, South Africa. Business mogul Johan Rupert built this modern gem, and it is not unusual to spy giraffes and zebras along the edges of the fairways as you play. Closer to home, I am anxious to one day check out Riviera, the acclaimed George C. Thomas layout in Los Angeles, and Prairie Dunes, the linksy, Perry Maxwell masterpiece in Hutchison, Kansas.
