The Golf Journalists Association of Canada is proud to announce that Bob Weeks is the 2013 recipient of the Dick Grimm Award.
The Dick Grimm Award alternates recipients each year between members of the Canadian golf media and someone from the Canadian golf industry who have made a significant contribution to Canadian golf.
Weeks (or, “Weeksy”) has been with SCOREGolf Magazine since 1987 and held the position of editor from 1993 to 2012. He is currently vice president of content and editorial director for all SCOREGolf Media Properties.
Throughout Weeks’ career, he has become one of the most recognizable and respected people in Canadian golf. Recently, the National Post named him the fifth-most influential person in the Canadian golf industry.
He may be most known for his work on television as the host of SCOREGolf TV, and the golf analyst for TSN, which sees him travel to all of the major championships, along with the top Canadian tournaments each year.
For 15 years Weeks was also the co-host of Fairways, a weekly radio program heard in Southwestern Ontario on The FAN 590.
He continues to appear on the radio today, as the host of SCOREGolf Radio, a daily 90-second golf radio program syndicated by TSN Radio in over 40 markets across Canada.
Weeks is also an award-winning writer. Besides contributing regular columns and blogs for scoregolf.com, he has also written for countless international publications including Golf Digest and GOLF Magazine, plus penned four books including The World’s Greatest Golf Courses.
Weeks lives in Toronto with his son Chris, and is a member at the Weston Golf and Country Club.
