For all its simplicity - sink the ball in the hole - golf has become a way of life for many. Golfers travel far and wide in search of the perfect green and in the process become sports idols.
This is the story of golf and the heroes who make it worth watching. Through lively mini biographies and extensive charts on championship winners you will get to know players like JoAnne "the Great Gundy" Carner and Arnold Palmer. The spotlights on tours geared toward women and older players show how the sport gives equal opportunity to everyone.
The people aren't the only legends in this book. Here you will also find out the eighteen best holes in the world. Large color photographs depict the golf courses the golfers choose from New Jersey to Scotland. As national champion Jack Nicklaus warns, "Sooner or later, the course is going to get you."
If you're a sports enthusiast, you'll love all the books in the series:
