Ed Hodge is the author of two acclaimed books, both close to his heart given his Perthshire upbringing. Jewel in the Glen: Gleneagles, Golf and The Ryder Cup was first printed in 2013, and subsequently updated for a second edition in 2014 after Europe’s triumph. Our Day in May, the story of St Johnstone FC’s first major trophy win in 130 years, was published on 17 May 2015, exactly a year after the club’s Scottish Cup success. Ed is also PR & Media Manager for Scottish Golf, the new single governing body for amateur golf in Scotland, and a freelance sports writer. He is a regular contributor to various national newspapers in Scotland, Scottish Club Golfer magazine, Global Golf Post online magazine and The Gleneagles Hotel website, and has written for Golf International and Bunkered magazine.
