Geoff Shackelford Pivots to Golfweek

Veteran chronicler of the sport will continue with his podcast and other sideline duties

Last year around this time, golf writer Geoff Shackelford launched a podcast on The Ringer with Joe House called ShackHouse. The pair are up to Episode #29, posting today. But there’s also some other big news involving the Shack half.

Shackelford, who has previously written for a wide variety of newspaper and magazine outlets, has joined Golfweek as a senior writer. The magazine was acquired last fall by Gannett and as part of this move, the website will be integrated into the USA Today Sports Media Group network. From the announcement:

“I’m thrilled by the opportunity to join the USA TODAY Sports Media Group and the incredible journalists at Golfweek who bring knowledge, passion and depth to their coverage,” said Shackelford. “The combination of their media assets, vision for the future and desire to bring serious golfers smart and engaging content is beyond exciting.”

Shackelford, based in Los Angeles, is the author of 11 books. He is also a golf course architect and is currently involved with renovations of the famed Los Angeles Country Club.
