Overview

Just what is this game, and what is the nature of its power over us? To explore these questions, renowned photographer Dick Durrance II set out on a 90 day, 46 city cross-country quest—driving more than 15,500 miles and flying another 20,000 miles to photograph and interview 75 golfers. With camera and tape recorder in hand, Durrance sought the soul of the sport, as it is revealed through the words and images of those who love it in Golfers

From PGA Tour players of past and present (Nicklaus, Palmer, Crenshaw, McCord, Mayfair, Begay); to leading architects and designers (Tom Fazio, Bill Coore); to club pros and teachers (Dave Pelz, Al Mengert, Karen Jacobs); to manufacturers and equipment reps; to caddies, starters and bag boys; to celebrity athletes and rock stars; to ordinary folk who just love the game—Durrance has pictured, prodded, and probed them all.

Canvassing the country, Durrance has captured the mystical allure of events like The Santa Claus Classic in Scottsdale, Arizona, and The Chilly Open in Wayzata, Minnesota. He's profiled the likes of George Pepper and Roger Maltbie, while sharing time on the green with rock stars Alice Cooper and Tico Torres. Along with gaining insight from golfing pros and celebrities, Durrance also captures golf's Everyman.

From New York City subway rider Bill Foster, to the Jones family who tee-off three generations strong, notables and novices alike mingle within the captivating portraits and compelling profiles inside Golfers.

With more than 75 beautiful black-and-white photos accompanied by descriptions of the locale and players, Durrance captures the very essence of the game. Transporting readers from fog-shrouded fairways, to the side of a grandfather beaming as his granddaughter sinks her first putt, to beneath the blazing Arizona sun, where Countryside RV Park residents play on the hardpan of the desert and the "greens" are soaked with cooking oil instead of water, Golfers reflects the magnificent range of people, places, and particulars that make golf such a passion, along with celebrating the deep feelings experienced by those who play the game. Golfers will treasure this book, and others will finally begin to understand what those on the green already know.

What People Are Saying

Alice Cooper
I was from Detroit. There were three sports—baseball, football, and grand theft auto. All highly competitive, all involving running. We didn't think much about golf.
