Nearly 150 years have passed since H.B. Farnie's The Golfer's Manual - the first book known to contain golf instruction - was published in Scotland. In all that time there has been no single volume that brings together the classic lessons of the great players and teachers of the game and presents that wisdom in their own words - until now. In 127 original, idiosyncratic and trailblazing essays, the men and women who both pioneered and popularized the game of golf come alive. Their words will remind readers why they love the game, and why all golfers - from the weekend enthusiast to the consummate pro - show their passion and respect for the game by improving as players. Chapters devoted to each phase of the game show both the evolution and connection of each instructional piece by linking the great lessons together and putting them in historical context. Illustrations, photographs, and sidebars enhance each section.
