One of them was a man who didn?t start playing golf until the age of thirty five. His name was Walter Travis. He was called "The Old Man", and played golf for the first time in the fall of 1896. Over the next eight years, often competing against players half his age-he won the U.S. Amateur three times, numerous state and regional events, and he became the first American to win the British Amateur. Before he died in 1927, he was the editor of the American Golfer Magazine, designed over 30 golf courses, and became a leading expert on course maintenance. As a player Walter Travis was fearless; as an editor he was outspoken; as an architect, he was brilliant. He often rode his bicycle to the course, he wrote love letters to his wife, and authored two best sellers on the game. Among his friends were presidents, industrialists, and mere members of local clubs. He drank whiskey with gusto, played golf with a cigar in his mouth, and once shot 62. The Old Man is not just a lesson in golf history, but also a celebration of one man's enduring contributions to the greatest game of all"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo.
