Ken Klavon

Klavon served as the online editor and a senior writer for the U.S. Golf Association for 12 years. Over a 24-year career that also includes stops at The Detroit News and Sports Illustrated, he has covered countless PGA Tour and USGA events while crafting compelling features, engaging course analysis, informative equipment reviews and more. Among his endless golf memories, he counts spending a full day with the late Byron Nelson as one of the most poignant. Klavon resides in New Jersey with his wife, three daughters and six pets (although there's still room for more … pets, that is).
