At Golf Digest, we've long had an appreciation for the singular genius of Ron Sirak. A senior writer for Golf Digest and Golf World, Sirak is a rare breed: a son of working class Western Pennsylvania who loves to champion the little guy, but who's also adept at navigating golf's blue blood inner circle to unearth important stories.
