Overview

For those interested in the early days of professional golf the story of Jack Grout and golf begins in 1915 and then takes them all the way forward to the 1980s and the making of today s modern golf tour.

Along the way readers will be delighted with stories of Jack's relationships with golfing legends like Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson, Raymond Floyd, Jack Nicklaus and many others. They get an inside look at Jack's life as a caddy, touring pro and teaching professional and as a man who played and taught the game as a true pro.

"Jack Grout was my unconditional friend for nearly four decades, serving as both my golf instructor and, after the premature death of my father in 1970, as a second father to me. Jack gave me a great deal of himself to me as my only golf teacher from the day I first attended on of his junior golf classes at Scioto Country Club, right up through my final major championship victory in the 1986 Masters." - Jack Nicklaus"
