James Dodson, a New York Times best-selling golf author and ECU alumnus, will be having a book signing at Coffman’s Mens Wear on Thursday from 2-7 p.m. during the Bills Khakis Trunk Show.
Dodson is a columnist for The Pilot newspaper and editor of the award-winning PineStraw Magazine in Southern Pines. His regular Sunday column recently was awarded top prize by the N.C. Press Association. During his 25-year writing career, he has won more than a dozen awards from the Golf Writers of America and other industry organizations.
His latest work, “American Triumvirate: Sam Snead, Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan and the Modern Age of Golf,” earned him the United States Golf Association’s Herbert Warren Wind Book Award for 2012. Dodson also won the award in 2004 for “Ben Hogan: An American Life.” He is just the second writer in the organization’s history to be recognized twice.
“Having Jim as our special guest at the Bills Khakis Trunk Show is a real privilege,” Bill Coffman, co-president of Coffman’s Mens Wear, said. “We think our customers will enjoy meeting him and talking to him about his many best-selling books.”
Dodson’s work has appeared in more than 50 magazines and newspapers worldwide. His journalism awards include the William Allen White Award for Public Affairs Journalism, plus numerous newspaper and magazine industry awards. He also is member of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews and the official historian of Seminole Golf Club.
