Description

Golf is a sport with a long history (reputedly starting in Scotland in the 13th century), outstanding figures, colourful characters, and many inspiring and humorous incidents. This serves both as an anecdotal history of golf as well as a recounting of its most famous and amusing events. The anecdotes on offer range from those involving King James VI to famous golfers such as Lee Trevino, Gary Player, and Arnold Palmer, and current stars Seve Ballesteros, Greg Norman, and John Daly.show more
