Dan Jenkins: Dead Solid Perfect

This past weekend, Dan Jenkins was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame for his contributions to golf journalism over the past 60-plus years. The photo above is from the AP. The guy waving is from the golf gods. Dan Jenkins. Genius and funny and knows more than anybody esle alive about golf. It means something to him and you can tell when he writes. Love him. He's made a lot of people happy by making them laugh, and he's made a lot of people smarter about golf, including golf people, whether they want to admit it or not. Most of them well. Good for Mr. Jenkins. He's the first writer to be inducted as a "vertical human." 'Bout time ....
