Overview

Often called "Mr. Golf" or the "Icon of Golf", Harry Vardon was not much interested in golf as a child. His brother Tom loved golf and Harry eventually gave it a try in his late teens in his hometown of Gourville, Jersey on the British Channel Islands. Harry became a super star and was the first golfer to ever wear knickerbockers.

With the first one being in 1896, Harry went on to win SIX Open Championships - a record that still stands today. In 1900, he toured the United States as the first international golf celebrity and finished his tour by winning the U.S. Open. The movie "The Greatest Game Ever Played" is about Harry's runner up performance at the 1913 U.S. Open. Harry was also a runner up at the 1920 U.S.
Open at the age of 50.

Harry struggled for years with tuberculosis but
managed to win 62 golf tournaments with a record
14 in a row.

When his health grew too poor to continue playing, Harry spent his time coaching and writing golf instruction and inspirational books.

Harry Vardon died in 1937 in Totteridge, Hertfordshire, England. After his death, the PGA of America created the Vardon Trophy. It is awarded annually to the player on the PGA Tour with the year's lowest adjusted scoring average.

This is an absolute "must read" for any golfer who has not yet had the pleasure!

    Waste of time

    Don't be fooled by the cost, downloading this book was a waste of my time and money. And it was free.
