Starting with Lady Margaret Scott, who was to win the first three of the Ladies' Golf Union's British Women's Championships, this book introduces the great figures of the women's game - characters such as Joyce Wethered, who won five successive English championships, and her opposite number in America, Glenna Collett Vare. These two were possibly the best women golfers of all time, but fate decreed that their careers should coincide - a circumstance which led to the famous British Women's final of 1929. Babe Zaharias, who won two gold medals in the 1932 Olympics before turning to golf, is another who has her niche in the sport's history, and in the pages of this book. The author charts the highlights of the Curtis Cup, the golden years of Irish golf at the turn of the century, the more recent success of the Rawlings family from Wales, the extraordinary longevity of Scots such as Charlotte Beddows, Helen Holm and Belle Robertson, and golfing fashions through the decades. The book also recalls Gloria Minoprio, a practising magician who caused a stir by wearing trousers and playing with just one club in the 1933 English championship.
