Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Johnson (editor and publisher, golfobserver.com) and Seanor (publisher, Golfweek) divide this softcover reference into two segments: annual statistics for professional golfers playing since 1958 and tournament results from 1958 to 2008. Alphabetized by player surname, golfer stats run between a quarter and a half page and detail, by year, wins, round played, starts, cuts, top placements, scoring averages, and money earned. Printed on paper of ephemeral quality and without illustrations, the book is purely a statistical reservoir.

    Great book to have

    Every golfer that I am interested in is listed. Great job in getting all of their records included in one book.
