Synopsis: The game of golf not only has a universal appeal, but also generates more economic activity and employment than any other sport. This book is about how one man, Tom Morris of St. Andrews, presided over the greatest period in the development of golf. Born in a humble weaver’s cottage in 1821, Morris largely made golf what it is today. From Morris and his son winning eight of the first twelve Open Championships to Morris being the first golf professional to design and build a course—Prestwick—this account shares the extraordinary blend of triumph and tragedy that marked this golf icon’s life.

About the Author:

David Malcolm was a former captain and life member of the New Golf Club of St. Andrews. Peter E. Crabtree is a golf historian with more than 30 years of experience and is the founder and former captain of the British Golf Collectors Society.

Book Description Book Condition: New. This book is about how one man, Tom Morris of St Andrews, presided over the greatest period in the development of golf. Born in a humble weaver’s cottage in 1821, he, more than anyone, made golf what it is today. His record, and that of his prodigiously gifted son, Tommy, is astonishing: between them they won eight of the first twelve Open Championships and are still respectively the oldest and youngest players to have won the Open. Revered by his contemporaries, Morris was the first golf professional, and his development of the Old Course at St Andrews made it the most famous golfing arena in the world. His life was an extraordinary blend of triumph and tragedy, marked by the early death of his son aged 24 years. Bookseller Inventory # 3320

Book Description Birlinn General, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Born in a humble weaver s cottage in 1821, he, more than anyone, before or since, in large measure made golf what it is today. The record of Tom and his prodigiously gifted son, Tommy, is astonishing. Between them they won eight of the first twelve Open Championships and are still respectively the oldest and youngest players to have won the Open. Tom relinquished his Open title to 18-yearold Tommy in 1868, taking second place that year - a family performance unlikely ever to be repeated. Tom s 13-stroke victory in 1862 remains the largest winning margin and Tommy s four Open Championship wins in succession are unequalled. These exploits are only half the story. Tom was the first golf professional, arguably the first to design and build a course (Prestwick) from scratch, and his development of the Old Course at St Andrews made it the most famous golfing arena in the world. His life was an extraordinary blend of triumph and tragedy, marked by the early death of his son Tommy aged only 24 years. Revered by his contemporaries, Tom Morris remains one of the most iconic figures in all sport and his legacy continues to inspire and guide the development of golf today.
