Randall Mell

Senior Writer, GolfChannel.com

Randall Mell has been covering golf since 1997 but has been a sportswriter for 30 years. Before joining GolfChannel.com as a senior writer, he was the golf writer and national college football columnist at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Mell has won two first-place awards in the Golf Writers of Association of America’s annual writing contest. He won first place in the daily newspaper category in 2007 for his story about Mark Wilson’s display of sportsmanship winning The Honda Classic. He also won first place in the daily special projects category in 2006 for a series of stories that included a probing look at the rivalry between architect Robert Trent Jones’ sons.


While with the Sun-Sentinel, Mell also covered the University of Miami football program for 10 years (1987-96) and won first place in the Associated Press Sport Editors national newspaper contest in 1995. He won for “best investigative reporting” for a story detailing improprieties in the football program’s drug-testing program. Mell also won first place in the Florida Sports Writers Association’s contest in 1994 in the investigative reporting division for a story about an agent’s secret cash payments to UM football players.

Mell was born in Madison, Wis., and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in 1981.
