MyPhillyGolf.com was launched in 2009 in
cooperation with the Golf Association of Philadelphia by two media
veterans: Joe Logan and Craig Ammerman, who have each worked more
than 25 years in this region and who each have deep roots in the game.
Joe Logan spent 35
years as a newspaper reporter and columnist, including 26 years at The
Philadelphia Inquirer, the last 13 of which he was the golf writer.
He covered the PGA, Champions and LPGA tours,
serious amateur golf and the local golf scene. He is the author of
"Playing a Round," a collection of 81 area golf course reviews that
first appeared in the Inquirer.
Logan has also written for Golf
magazine, Golf World, Golfweek, Links magazine, Golf.com, the USGA.org and other golf
websites and publications. He has appeared on the Golf Channel’s Grey
Goose’s 19th Hole and
Viewers Forum, as well as in several of the network’s Top 10
programs and documentaries, including Tiger vs. Jack. He was a
frequent guest on Making the Turn, on XM Radio’s PGA Tour Network
is a regular contributor to the Global
Golf Post and a panelist on Inside
Golf’s "Teed Off" segment on Comcast SportsNet.
He is a member in good standing of the Golf
Writers Association of America, from which he has received several awards.
A native of North Carolina, Logan holds a
degree in journalism from the University of South Carolina. Before the Inquirer,
he worked for newspapers in Minneapolis, Jackson, Miss., and Columbia, S.C.
He also played small college golf for a time, although you wouldn’t know
it by the way he plays now.
