After 50-plus years reporting on golf for mainly Chicago publications, Ziehm is a lousy retiree. After 41 years at the Chicago Sun-Times covering a variety of sports (but always golf), Ziehm works as a golf columnist for the Daily Herald chain of Chicago-area newspapers. Ziehm has covered 28 U.S. Opens, 11 Masters, 19 PGA Championships, five U.S. Women’s Opens and the last 34 stagings of the late, great Western Open. Since retiring from the Sun-Times in 2010, he has taken on travel-writing projects and has written on golf destinations in 30-plus states. Ziehm is a member of the Illinois Golf Hall of Fame.
