FROM THE EDITOR THE MASTERS CHAMP WILL BE ... Last issue, I told you all about our push into social media. Since then, my team and I have continued to grow the magazine’s presence on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and have been brainstorming ways to improve our efforts and increase our followers. Even though I’m no techie, I’m embracing social media and have even started posting Instagram stories. OK, I’ve posted only two, but I promise more will be coming. I see social media as a key way for the magazine staff to deliver relevant information to all of our readers between our quarterly issues, and to carry on a two-way conversation with you via cyberspace. Here’s how I’d like to get that conversation going, and maybe even get it heated up. In our Winter issue, some of the country’s top golf journalists made a slew of predictions about the 2018 golf year. Three chimed in on who they thought would win the Masters in April, and why. Not surprisingly, these golf fanatics didn’t agree with one another, picking three different pros to slide on that green jacket: Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm, and Jordan Spieth. Surely, you have your own pick, and we want you to share it with us. Tag us @privateclubsmag and tell us why your guy will be the one seeing green (last year’s champ, Sergio Garcia, walked away with $1.98 million) and wearing green after the final round at Augusta. My pick? Jordan Spieth. He won it before, and I say he’ll do it again this year! — DON NICHOLS DRUM ROLL Private Clubs recently nabbed the Bronze Medal for Best Travel Magazine in the North American Travel Journalists Association Travel Media Awards. “Philly’s Rising Again,” a feature in our Spring 2017 issue, won the Gold Medal for Best Destination Travel story.
