Overview

In a history spanning more than 500 years, a Scottish seaside pastime has become the passionate pursuit of 60 million players and 10 times as many fans worldwide.

In its 296 stirring pages, THE GOLF BOOK offers a spectacular tribute to an old game that never runs short of surprises--a celebration of the grand, still-unfolding story of golf.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In sports, it's hard to be a "student of the game." A young person lacks the historical perspective but over time can remain contemporary via tributes like this to golf. The editors of Sports Illustrated have pieced together photos and essays of the sport from the magazine's archives. The short collected pieces by Dan Jenkins, Steve Wulf, Bobby Jones, and others stand the test of time. As to the photos, which dominate the text, in many instances they look more impressive here than as they originally appeared in the magazine. The editors also cover women golfers and the LGPA. (This being a Sports Illustrated product, much is made of the current bumper crop of "lookers.") Books in a similar vein include Classic Golf: The Photographs of Walter Ioos Jr. VERDICT For golf fans, this is a coffee-table book worth considering.—Steven Silkunas, North Wales, PA
