Overview

Golf is one of the world's fastest growing sports, with more than 60 million players worldwide generating billions of dollars a year, and book sales in the millions. The Golf Book opens with a history of the game, including its origins and rich traditions. The story continues later as the book visits the world's most prestigious golf championships, including The Open and The Ryder Cup. Many of these have been the settings of the greatest moments in golf, and a separate section is devoted to a celebration of the special feats that have defined the sport over the years. A lavish tour of the most coveted golf courses, from St. Andrews in Scotland, to Augusta in the US, and Cape Kidnappers in New Zealand, transports the reader to the fairways of golfing fantasies. The accent is on style, design, and technology as The Golf Book showcases the very latest developments in equipment, from the evolution of the golf ball to custom-fitted clubs. Harnessing the new technology is the focus of the unique techniques section that examines and dissects the shots of the professionals, and suggests ways in which players of all skill levels can improve their game. The book would not be complete without the records and statistics that tell their own story of the game.
