John Feinstein

John Feinstein is a contributor to Golf Central, the network’s daily evening news program, and GolfChannel.com. Feinstein is one of the nation’s most respected sports authors, and also is an award-winning columnist and regular contributor in both radio and television.

 His works include the two top best-selling non-fiction sports books in history. In 1995, he published the all-time best seller A Good Walk Spoiled, a year inside life on the PGA TOUR as told through 17 different players. Just behind that in sales is A Season on the Brink, which chronicled a year in the life of the Indiana basketball team and its coach, Bob Knight. The book's chart-topping success was also adapted to film with an ESPN production of a made-for TV movie of the same title.

 Feinstein also wrote Caddy for Life, the Bruce Edwards Story which was released in 2004. In that book Feinstein writes about the life and final days of Tom Watson's former caddie, Bruce Edwards, who had been diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

 Feinstein is a 1977 graduate of Duke University and spent 11 years as a sports and political reporter with the Washington Post. He also has contributed to Sports Illustrated, the National Sports Daily, ESPN, CBS Sports and Golf Digest. He resides in Potomac, Md., and Shelter Island, N.Y.
