About the Author:

His stories have been honored by four professional journalist associations and the United Press International. Currently he is traveling the golf circuit with assignments from golf magazines.

Review:

Decade after decade, there was always somebody to pick up the mantle of great Texas golf. The group before us always kept us going toward greatness. It created competition, and it created heroes. (Masters Champion and Ryder Cup Captain Ben Crenshaw)

Having 18 people from Texas in the World Golf Hall of Fame, that's pretty cool. The Hall of Fame is for great players. We always had a lot of them in Texas. (2004 World Golf Hall of Fame Inductee Tom Kite)

I didn't have much money for sure, but I had dreams, and in Texas that was enough. (British Open, U. S. Open, PGA Champion Lee Trevino)

Texas has more history and historic figures than New York, the East Coast, anyone. (Masters Champion and Champions Golf Club Founder Jack Burke,)

Using an informative and entertaining decade-by-decade chapter style the book covers more than a century of Texas golf... (Golf Houston Magazine)

Links, Lore, & Legends, does a fine job of informing us that there is much more to the Lone Star State's golf history than Hogan and Nelson. (Jeff Cash Avidgolfer)

Now for the first time, a Texas golf writing veteran has made an attempt to catalog the state's golfing history in a helpful and comprehensive book...This hardback primer does an outstanding job of hitting all the highlights- and what golfing highlights they are. (Texas Golfer)

Links, Lore & Legends: The Story of Texas Golf, by Art Stricklin ($24.95) ― Don't mess with Texas. Actually, that has nothing to do with this book ― I just like saying it. Messing with Texas golf history, that's another story. There's so much of it that you can't fit it all, in detail, in one book. Links, Lore, & Legends is a smorgasbord of Lone Star heroes and trivia, full of stuff you probabl know (are there any Ben Hogan stories you haven't heard by now?) and stuff you probably don't know (Long Drivers of America Tour founder Art Sellinger is a Texan). (Sports Illustrated)

The Links, Lore, and Legends book covers the whole growth of Texas golf, in increments, with special attention to the heroes, the major tournaments held in the state, and includes little known, but interesting facts. (Bob Weisgerber Golf Today)
