PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Award-winning journalist Larry Dorman, who has more than a quarter-century of experience covering golf, will begin writing for PGATOUR.COM starting with this week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.


Dorman will write bi-monthly columns and be part of PGATOUR.COM's on-site coverage at select PGA TOUR events throughout the season.

"We are delighted to enhance our coverage of the PGA TOUR with someone of Larry's stature, experience and talent," said Ty Votaw, PGA TOUR Executive Vice President of Communications & International Affairs. "Larry has been integrally linked to golf and the PGA TOUR since the 1970s and beyond having a wealth of knowledge to draw from, has the innate ability to transform this knowledge into the printed word and entertain his readership. We look forward to Larry's contributions on PGATOUR.COM."

A former president of the Golf Writers Association of America, Dorman is the recipient of numerous awards for his coverage of the sport from both the Golf Writers Association of America and the Associated Press Sports Editors (APSE).

He covered golf and the NFL from 1977 to 1993 at the Palm Beach Post, Miami Herald and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel and also was the golf writer at the National Sports Daily and a contributing editor to Golf Digest and Golf World magazines. In 1993 Dorman began the first of two four-year stints as the golf correspondent for the New York Times. From 1997-2007 he was Senior Vice President of Global Press and Public Relations at Callaway Golf Company. He returned to the New York Times to cover golf from 2007-11.

"After spending the past 35 years writing about and working in the world of golf, I am thrilled to move into the next phase of my career as part of the great team of writers and editors at PGATOUR.COM," Dorman said. "I relish the opportunity to contribute to the No. 1 golf site on the internet."
