    I am not a golfer, but dowloaded this for my spouse who is. I decided to read this essay and found it to be a very insighful piece on golf, and how it's changed over the years. It isn't rule changes and such as in other professional sports, but the perception of who can and does play. It's not a judgemental piece, but an observation of society.

    Interesting but dated essay

    This is a reprint of Palmer's 1994 essay, Reflections on the Game. It's an easy read, with Arnie's insight into the shape of the golf world. But it's dated. And, even though the game hasn't changed much since then, the golf world has. The gentlemanly code of conduct he praises is severely tarnished in the wake of Tiger's on-course and off-course stories. I'd love to read an updated version of this essay. Arnie's insights now would be an indeed interesting read.

    Great Essay From One of Sports All Time Greats

    First of all, yes it is outdated, but like the sport of golf itself, the virtues and lessons that golf teaches and are reflected on in this essay are timeless. In what other sport is everybody, young and old, on an equal playing field? In what other sport is complete honesty on the playing field practiced by each participant, even when thousands, or even millions, of dollars on the line? I used to not like golf, but reading Arnold Palmers and Jim Nances biographies have converted me. For any golf fan and enthusiast, I recommend this charming read.

    A minor read.

    Not much to it, unless you happen to idolize Arnold Palmer and/or are a dedicated golfer. I'm neither, so it's a good thing this little essay was free. On the plus side, even 'tho it was woefully out of date from its original publication, the thoughts and priciples expressed by Mr. Palmer remain timely and pertinent today.

    Good Short Story

    While only 16 pages this is a very insightful and well written essay on Arnie's reflections of the game of golf and it's enduring character.
