KIRKUS REVIEW

Almost any golfer whose interests concern the personalities and the background of his game will find this dramatic history of the game, the tournaments and the men (and women) a fascinating book. Price has the faculty of describing matches with a quality of immediacy that hears small relationship to when they happened. He brings the same gift to the telling of the background stories of the golfers, men who rose to fame from simple beginnings in particular Outmet, Bobby Jones, Walter Hagen, Gene Sarazen, Arnold Palmer and others. This is a championship book with hundreds of news pictures which will fascinate golfers everywhere. And from the text they will learn something new about the game and its players.
