Senior Writer

Jim McCabe joined Golfweek in December of 2008 after 23 years working for what he insists is the greatest sports department in newspaper history – the Boston Globe. Baseball was his passion, at least until college (North Adams State in the far northwest corner of Massachusetts) when he fell in love with golf thanks to spring days at nine-hole Stamford Valley (2,955 from the tips) in Vermont and the sneak-on excursions at Taconic in nearby Williamstown.
 
• Favorite golf course: Boston Golf Club (U.S.), Crail Golf Course (Scotland).
• Dream vacation: To play the great courses of Australia.
• Best golf shot seen live: Tiger Woods’s chip-in for birdie from behind the 16th hole in the final round of the 2005 Masters.
• Describe your perfect day: Wake up at dawn, fresh coffee, good newspaper, early round of golf with friends, watch Red Sox beat Yankees in day baseball, twilight golf with my sons, then watch highlights of Red Sox victory over Yankees.
