Welcome to the new, updated version of the Len Ziehm on Golf website. As was the case when we introduced the website three years ago, our aim is to touch on all phases of our sport through my wide range of freelance writing projects.
There will continue to be a bigger focus on golf travel destinations, as we’ve expanded our offerings far beyond the Chicago area with trips to all parts of the country. We also have working arrangements with Golf Now!, Chicago, the premier golf destination guide that enters its 11th season in 2013. LZOG Travel-related items will also continue to appear in Hacker’s Central, the Minneapolis-based website that’s been in operation since 2007, and we’ve also streamlined our tournament reports and other feature pieces in an effort to make them easier to locate.
We also provided something new to those two golf travel-related sites, along with those of our two other website partners — Golfers On Golf and Illinois Golfer. A winter-only notes column, It Ziehms to Me,” was started in 2012 and supplemented those sites and — like virtually all LZOG creations — also ran on social media outlets Facebook, Twitter and Linked In.
Our columns in the Daily Herald chain of Chicago newspapers and Chicagoland Golf newspaper (renamed for 2013 after going under the banner Chicago Area Golf for three seasons) remain the nucleus of our other writing projects on display here, along with a variety of writings in Chicago District Golfer magazine.
Though we’ve been involved in some book-writing over the years (see Books segment of this website), we ventured into that field in a major way in 2012, with a Special Edition on the captivating Ryder Cup at Medinah. Similar projects are in various planning stages as we move into 2013.
