BOSTON – New England dot Golf, a digital marketing platform that highlights the best of golf in New England and beyond, welcomes sports writer Bill Doyle to its team of golf writers.
Doyle joins a team of such veteran golf journalists as Bruce Berlet, Steve Pike, Leigh MacKay, Ed Travis, Rob Duca, John Ingoldsby, Len Ziehm, Jim Hammond, Pam Borges and Lynn Cotter.
In his new role, Doyle will provide regular contributions ranging from interviews, travel, lifestyle, real estate, commentary and special assignments.
Doyle brings 45 years of professional sports writing experience to New England dot Golf. His resume includes 40 years as a sports writer for the Worcester Telegram & Gazette where he wrote a Sunday golf column and covered professional and amateur golf. He also wrote about all four of the major professional sports teams in the Boston area, mostly about the Boston Celtics, as well as college and local sports.
Working for the newspaper in the city where Worcester Country Club hosted the inaugural Ryder Cup in 1927, Doyle covered the improbable comeback of the U.S. team at the 1999 Ryder Cup at The Country Club in Brookline.
Doyle also covered the 1988 U.S. Open at The Country Club, the 2001 and 2017 U.S. Senior Open championships at Salem Country Club, the U.S. Women’s Open championships at The Orchards in South Hadley in 2004 and at Newport Country Club in 2006, the PGA Tour stops at Pleasant Valley Country Club in Sutton for nearly 20 years and at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut, for several years; and every PGA Tour event at TPC Boston in Norton from the inaugural event in 2003 until media access was limited by the pandemic in 2020.
Doyle has interviewed many well known golfers, including Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Annika Sorenstam and Brittany Altomare, a native of Shrewsbury, Massachusetts.
Doyle has also enjoyed covering amateur golf events in his home state of Massachusetts and in the Worcester area.
“I’ve known Tom Gorman for a long time and I’m impressed with how he’s built Newengland.golf into the respected and well read website that it is today,” Doyle said. “I’m looking forward to working with him and his staff.”
