John Eckberg - Contributor

John Eckberg has been a life-long bogey golfer, whose addiction to the sport began with nine-iron pitches to and from neighbor Frank Haines's back yard and on the golf courses in and around Akron, Ohio. His fondest golf memories date to his teenaged-years when he and his brother would annually sneak into PGA events at Firestone Country Club, then spend the day eluding marshals as part of the army that trailed Arnold Palmer.

He is the co-author of Road Dog, a true crime thriller and a business reporter for The Cincinnati Enquirer. His work or columns have appeared in numerous publications, including The New York Times, USA Today, Newsweek, Sports Afield, Country Home, and Gannett newspapers across the nation.
