Review:

In this video from the History Channel, the story of golf is told in exquisite detail, from its obscure beginnings as an afternoon diversion for a few Scottish shepherds to its current position as the beloved obsession of millions. Hosted by former professional golfer and longtime broadcaster Ken Venturi, this classy presentation is marked by insightful interviews with golf historians and legends such as Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. Earlier titans of the game, including the legendary amateur champion Bobby Jones, as well as pros Walter Hagen, Babe Didrikson Zaharias, Gene Sarazen, Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan, and Sam Snead are well represented in vintage film clips. Gorgeous photography enhances visits to golf landmarks such as St. Andrew's in Scotland and the Augusta National and Pinehurst courses in the United States. This production offers an abundance of detail, right down to historians of the game demonstrating the evolution of balls, tees, and clubs. The viewer will come away with a real understanding of how the game developed from a diversion played by eccentrics swinging clubs in cow pastures to its current status as one of the fastest-growing sports in the world. Golf: Links in Time is both intelligent and fun, and will add to anyone's understanding of the game. --Robert J. McNamara
