The Complete Encyclopedia of Golf is the authoritative record of the world's greatest game. Golf is not so much a sport as it is an obsession. It's a good walk spoiled, it's life in the round, and when you embark on a round of 18 holes, you know it's going to be as much a test of character as it will be a measure of sporting skill. The exact origins of the game continue to be a topic of debate, but golf as we know it certainly began in Scotland several centuries ago and has now colonized the globe. Millions of passionate fans turn on their television sets each weekend to watch the world's top players compete, and die-hard amateurs flock to the courses themselves to work on their ever-improving games. From the early pioneers of the Royal and Ancient at St. Andrews with their "rutting irons" and tailcoats, to today's larger-than-life stars, this book covers all of the golfing legends from Walter Hagen to Tiger Woods along with their records of achievement and the performances that catapulted them to such great heights. With more than 300 photographs, a comprehensive history of the sport, and features on the greatest major championships, all of the legendary players who have made the sport what it is today, and the most famous courses that have played host to the most remarkable moments in the sport's history, The Complete Encyclopedia of Golf has it all. Read about past triumphs and failures at The Masters, the U.S. Open, the British Open, the PGA Championship, the Ryder Cup, and more. Learn about the intricacies at Valderrama and Victoria, at Augusta and Pebble Beach. If it's in golf, it's in this book.About the Author:
