Synopsis: The Love of Golf offers a wealth of information and lively anecdotes about the game, its history, its greatest players, and its best courses. This chunky hardcover book profiles golf superstars like Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods. It highlights golf's greatest moments, including Gene Sarazen's double eagle at the 1935 Masters, Nancy Lopez's streak of five wins in her rookie season, and John Daly's out-of-nowhere victory at the 1991 PGA Championship. Mixed in are hilarious quotes and amusing stories about the great pastime of golf.

The Love of Golf starts with detailed stories about the game's legends - Sam Snead, golf courses such as St. Andrews - and then moves to the lighter side of golf, where readers will meet golfers like Lee Trevino, also known as Supermex, and Roger Maltbie, who once lost a $40,000 winner's check at a restaurant. The Love of Golf captures the passion of the game through intriguing text and beautiful photographs. Here is a sampling of the book's content:

Golf greats: Arnold Palmer, Babe Zaharias, Sam Snead, Byron Nelson, Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson, Nancy Lopez, Greg Norman, Vijay Singh, Tom Watson, Seve Ballesteros
Courses: Pebble Beach, Shinnecock Hills, Glen Abbey, The National, Cypress Point
Golf's best: Best rounds, best hot streaks, best Masters, best characters, strangest moments, best shots, best U.S. Opens, best U.S. holes, best PGA Championships
Golf's lighter side: Humorous quotes from Chi Chi Rodriguez, Walter Hagen, Jimmy Demaret, and Zeppo Marx
