Description

From A. A. Milne's definition of golf ("the best game in the world at which to be bad") to Tiger Woods' preternatural powers on the course; from the particular handicap women players faced in 1929 -- skirts -- to the secret of Arnold Palmer's greatness; from George Plimpton's PGA reminiscences to the classic short story, "The Rivercliff Golf Killings, " the diverse selections in "The Greatest Golf Stories Ever Told" reflect the history, tradition, agony, and ecstasy of the game.show more

Review quote

"Every once in a while, a book publisher comes up with a great concept for a series of books that deserve more than superficial recognition. Such a series is "The Greatest (fill in the blank) Stories Ever Told," anthologies that should win places on many bedside tables. On the long winter nights that lie ahead, such stories make great reading." --T"he Lexington County Chronicle"show more
