Leave it to the unsinkable Barkow to come up with a lighter-than-air collection of the game's trivia that seamlessly floats from the esoteric to the essential.

The Met Golfer - Les Schupak
Barkow has included lesser-known and obscure nuggets and oddities. . . . For true trivia fans, the book is a goldmine.
RV Life
“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.”
