For more than forty years, in the pages of Sports Illustrated, Anthony Ravielli documented the techniques of the world’s finest women golfers, including Glenna Colette Vere, Babe Zaharias, and Betsy Rawls. Ravielli’s art captures the intricacies of the game with more detail and beauty than any photograph could.
