“A…title that captures every aspect of this enjoyable compilation of statistics and little-known facts about the game of golf”

“Barkow is no stranger to the golf industry. He’s written for Golf Digest, Gold World, Links Magazinem Golf Tips Magazine, and a host of other publications. He’s published a dozen golf related books.”

“In the first 173 pages of Golf’s all-time Firsts Barkow digs deep into the record books to come up with some interesting facts.”

“Readers could spend hours sitting at the 19th hold with Al Barkow’s interesting read. In addition, the last few pages of the book contain a personal record area for the book;s owner. You too can record your personal firsts, mosts, leasts, and nevers.”
