The Society of the Four Arts

Canadian journalist and author Lorne Rubenstein was the columnist for The Globe and Mail, Canada’s national newspaper, from 1980-2013. He has written 14 books about golf, with his latest being a collaboration with Tiger Woods on “The 1997 Masters: My Story,” published in March 2017. He has also co-written books with George Knudson, David Leadbetter, and Nick Price. His 2012 book “Moe and Me: Encounters With Moe Norman, Golf’s Mysterious Genius” is the story of his experiences with one of golf’s most intriguing figures. Tiger Woods told Golf Digest, “Only two golfers have ever truly owned their swings: Moe Norman and Ben Hogan.” Rubenstein’s 2001 book “A Season in Dornoch: Golf and Life in the Scottish Highlands,” is an account of the summer he spent playing golf at Royal Dornoch, one of the game’s most revered courses. Rubenstein maintained a near-scratch handicap for many years, and played in the Ontario Amateur and British Amateur. He caddied on the PGA Tour a few tournaments a season for several years, first for 1967 U.S. and British Amateur champion Bob Dickson, and then for 1975 and 1976 Canadian Amateur winner Jim Nelford. He was the first editor for ScoreGolf, Canada’s national magazine, where he writes a a back-page column. He is a course ranking panelist for ScoreGolf, and for GOLF Magazine. Rubenstein co-hosted Acura World of Golf on The Sports Network in Canada for the 11 years that it ran. He has written for Golf Digest, Golf World, Golf Magazine, Esquire, Travel & Leisure Golf, Masters Journal, Golf Monthly (U.K.)., Links, Toronto Life, and many other publications. He will discuss his career writing about and working with many of golf’s top players, and his varied experiences in the game. Book signing to follow.
