As lush as the gorgeously landscaped courses it covers, this completely new edition of the most successful golf book in Abrams' history takes readers on a highly entertaining "tour of the Tour," this time following the tournaments of the 2005 PGA season. The author, a noted golf authority who for 25 years was GOLF Magazine's editor-in-chief, provides an anecdotal history of each tournament, along with valuable tips on how to play specific shots. Complementing the text are beautiful color photographs of all the sites, including rarely seen views of the courses that are joining the Tour for the first time in 2005.
Comprehensive statistical tables for each tournament, schematic maps or drawings of each course, yardage and par information for each hole of each course, and detailed descriptions of the most challenging holes help make this carefully researched and wonderfully readable book an invaluable addition to the golfer's bookshelf. From the armchair golfer who follows the Tour on television to the active player seeking inspiration and information, this sumptuous volume makes the perfect gift for any links fan.
Author Bio: George Peper, editor-in-chief of GOLF Magazine for 25 years, wrote the first and second editions of this book. He lives and golfs in St. Andrews, Scotland.
