Synopsis:

For 25 years Herbert Warren Wind chronicled the game of golf in his beloved essays for The New Yorker magazine. Collected here, in a newly reissued edition, are 27 of his most treasured pieces. Following Through represents 22 years of work?from 1962 to 1984?and serves as a testament to America?s greatest golf writer.

A keen observer of the game, Wind?s writing explores character and setting as much as the game itself, with descriptions of his favorite courses, players, and tournaments. Highlights include:

  • Wind?s thoughtful piece on the 50th Anniversary Master?s Tournament
  • A thrilling account of Ken Venturi?s win in the ?64 US Open after a legendary comeback
  • Detailed stories on modern champions and celebrated players of the past
  • Paeans to the world?s great courses like Augusta National and the Royal Dornoch
  • A touching eulogy for Bing Crosby from 1977, celebrating the singer?s contributions to the game

A delightful read for long-time fans and newcomers alike, Herbert Wind?s Following Through is a shining example of sports writing at its absolute best.

From Library Journal: Wind is a sportswriter who describes the game of golf with the same precision and sensitivity that Roger Angell brings to his books on baseball. In this volume of pieces taken from his column in the New Yorker , Wind writes of people, places, and events. Whether he is describing his favorite golf course (St. Andrews), some of his favorite golfers (Bobby Jones, Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino), or the Masters 50th Anniversary Tournament, he is alsways articulate and not afraid to pursue his subject in meticulous detail. One chapter simply entitled ``Mr. Crosby'' extols Bing's contributions to the game and is a delight to read. Essential for sports collections. Samuel Simons, Memorial Hall Lib., Andover, Mass.
