Overview

Organized golf began in Scotland in the fifteenth century. Since that small beginning, the game has grown phenomenally and circled the globe. Today, players and spectators number in the millions. Golf has provided thrills and spectacular performances aplenty, and grounds for lively discussion about the exploits of the greatest golfers of all time. But who were the best? How does one compare the achievements of golfers in the era of wooden clubs and the featherie ball, a sewn leather sphere stuffed with feathers, to the modern era of titanium-shafted clubs and Surlyn balls? How does one rank players from different generations who had different opportunities to win championships? Or those who competed before there were large-money purses or, indeed, any at all? Respected golf author Robert McCord does just that by comparing the tournament records of each golfer, the level of competition, and other factors, such as stroke average and performance in major tournaments

Legends such as Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, and Jack Nicklaus, and the history makers of today, including Ernie Els, Tiger Woods, and Nick Faldo are profiled in colorful, detailed biographies that reveal exactly how these champions made their mark. In addition to a separate section on the groundbreaking top 41 female golfers of all time, this new edition features updated stats, revised rankings and records, and recent notable achievements of each player. Fully illustrated with photographs, The Golf 100 provides grist for golf lovers' debates, and is a must for any sports library.
