Tickets for Dodson’s appearance, which is sponsored by the Friends of the Randolph County Public Library, are $35 per person and can be purchased at the Asheboro Public Library, 201 Worth Street. Heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served and there will be a cash bar.
In his 40-year career as a journalist, Dodson has gained international renown for his books on golfing. The Range Bucket List, published in 2017, is a funny, intimate, nostalgic journey of self and sport in which this legendary author completes his golf “bucket list.”
Dodson’s previous books include Final Rounds; Ben Hogan: An American Life; American Triumverate: Sam Snead, Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan and the Age of Modern Golf, which won the U.S. Golf Association’s Herbert Warren Wind Award in 2012; A Golfer’s Life with Arnold Palmer; and A Son of the Game, which was named Top Golf Book of the Year by the International Network of Golf.
In 2011, Dodson won the prestigious Donald Ross Award, given annually by the American Society of Golf Course Architects — only one of two golf writers to receive the award. He is also a recipient of North Carolina’s highest honor, the Order of the Long Leaf Pine.
Dodson and his wife Wendy live in Greensboro.
