Mike Clayton is a golf professional who fell in love with the game as a twelve-year-old more than thirty years ago. It took him to all parts of the golfing world -- where he met, played with, and observed the best players of his generation. It also gave him the chance to play on the greatest courses on the planet. In Golf from the Inside he writes of some of the best of both, but adds a distinct and vivid perspective to a book that mainly documents the history of golf in Australia from 1970. Always known as a writer who says what he thinks, here Mike Clayton offers insights into the best and worst of the game; what he makes of the careers of players as famous as Norman, Ballesteros, and Woods; the futures of young players such as Aaron Baddeley and Adam Scott, and the stories of his golfing mates, such as Ian Baker-Finch and Wayne Grady. Now working as a golf-course architect, he writes of the best courses around the world as well as the mecca of Australian golf-course architecture, the sandbelt of Melbourne. His observations of its present state and the role its custodians have played in its alteration will interest all who love the game.
