Overview

It’s a golf hall of fame, shame, and arcane. Collected in this handsome volume are more than one hundred of golf’s greatest moments—from the famous to the long forgotten—from the links of Scotland in the 1800s to the 1938 U.S. Open, the 1954 US Women’s Open to the 2010 Masters, and even to the little known Martini Invitational in 1971… and starring the giants of the game down to the struggling pros and amateurs. Told in a whimsical fashion, these are stories of triumph, amazing holes-in-one and other feats, hilarious gaffes, classic matchups, heart-racing final rounds, trailblazing careers, monumental breakdowns, and other incredible events no reader will ever forget.

     There’s the story of Jack “The Golden Bear” Nicklaus and Gary “The Black Knight” Player being attacked by killer bees on a course in South Africa in 1966; the 1954 US Women’s Open Championship won by the pioneering Babe Zaharias just one month after cancer surgery; four holes-in-one, on the same hole, in the 1989 US Open at Oak Hill Country Club, in under two hours; and much, much more.

Meet the Author

If he had been able to master his short game, Dr. Joshua Shifrin might have made a living at golf rather than earning a PhD in psychology. Nevertheless, he loves the game and is still thrilled when he manages to make a knee-knocker putt in his weekend game. Josh and his family live in New Jersey.
