A Golf Companion
McKellar was conceived by a group of writers – passionate golfers – who believe there is a place in the modern media landscape for a beautifully written, beautifully illustrated publication celebrating what is great about the sport. In the era where disposable is king, we aim to be collectible, a journal to cherish and share. Place us on your bookshelf next to your favourite novels.
Our promises to you:
What we need from you:
The golf analogy here isn’t Bubba Watson, who is characterized as a pure artist and whose shot shapes are less deliberate choice than how he’s hard-wired. Collins is more like Phil Mickelson, whose looping shots sometimes seem as if they’re performed out of boredom as much as his own bravado.
All that’s ahead, it seems, is flat marshy terrain scarred with tidal burns and punctuated by plains of sea rushes and herds of grazing sheep and horses. From the vantage point slightly above the first tee, there do not seem to be any fairways to speak of, just subtle changes in colour. Dog walkers, kite flyers and golfers are mere specks beneath the spidery line of sand dunes that rise to the northeast.
Modern press rooms are filled with far too few actual journalists. Here’s something your probably don’t know. Those people clapping at player press conferences aren’t journalists, they’re guests of the sponsor invited in to make the room look better on TV. For them, golf writing isn’t a job or a craft. It’s a journalism fantasy camp.
