An engaging new volume has British golf expert writing biographical sketches of 100 notable golfers. Farrell's approach is chronological from Allan Robertson to Rory McIlroy. The proflies (generally about a page each) are excellent and make a case for each golfer's inclusion giving the essential details of each career and omitting nothing important. Having said this, I have two reservations. First, the pictures (one for each golfer) are not well-reproduced, ranging from just adequate to very poor (Lee Trevino, for example.) Second, Farrell's choices tend to be inclusive rather than analytical. John Daly and Charlie Sifford both have great stories, but neither is among the best hundred. And Farrell tends to include golf pioneers whose career credentials don't quite measure up. The book is a great read, but for a reliable list of golf's best, I'll stick with Elliott Kalb's WHO'S BETTER, WHO'S BEST IN GOLF, even though a few years out of date.
