Irwin Smallwood
Irwin Smallwood spent nearly a half a century as a writer and editor for the Greensboro News & Record, working in both the sports and news departments. Smallwood held the titles of Managing Editor and Executive Sports Editor along the way. His passion was golf writing, however, and for three consecutive years in the 1960s Smallwood won first place in the news division of the national golf writing competition. Smallwood also won numerous writing awards on the state and regional levels. Smallwood chaired the Greater Greensboro Open's 50th anniversary celebration in 1988, and in 1999 Smallwood was named Honorary Chairman of the tournament. The media center for the Wyndham Championship was named in honor of Smallwood. Smallwood is a member of the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame, the Carolinas Golf Hall of Fame and the North Carolina Journalism Hall of Fame.

Wyndham Championship : Irwin Smallwood, 3 April 2011 [cached]
Irwin Smallwood is a retired former golf writer, sports editor and managing editor of the Greensboro News & Record and the old Greensboro Daily News where he worked for more than four decades. The Wyndham Championship Media Center was named in his honor in 2004. Smallwood pioneered golf writing in the North Carolina. He didn't limit himself to PGA TOUR stops; he showed enthusiasm for covering junior tournaments, city amateurs, state amateurs and other events.
His diligence and writing flair won the Greensboro native three National Golf Writers Association awards and numerous other honors; he co-founded the Carolina's Golf Writer's Association. He spent 18 years on the news side of the business, but five years before retiring in 1989, he returned to sports as executive sports editor. He still had the writer's touch, winning a N.C. Press Association Award.
Smallwood has observed the Piedmont Triad's PGA TOUR event since the late 1940s. In 1999 he was named Honorary Chairman of the Wyndham Championship. Many share Smallwood's love for the Piedmont Triad's PGA TOUR event, but few, if any, have his passion for the event.
