THE CHAMPION won't be the only one to rake in some hardware at Jack Nicklaus's Memorial Tournament this week. SPORTS ILLUSTRATED special contributor John Garrity was given the event's Memorial Golf Journalism Award, which was created in 1982 for media members "who have served their profession with conspicuous honor and made a major contribution and impact." Garrity, who has written for SI for 27 years and penned more than a dozen books, joins an illustrious list of recipients, including SI alumni Dan Jenkins ('94) and Herbert Warren Wind ('84). A plaque honoring Garrity will hang among those of previous winners in the Memorial Tournament media center in Dublin, Ohio.
