9780751533262: The Greatest Game Ever Played: Vardon, Ouimet and the birth of modern golf

This fascinating narrative chronicles the birth of the modern game of golf, told through the story of Harry Vardon and Francis Ouimet. These men, in pursuit of their passion for a sport that had captivated them since childhood, lifted themselves out of their lives of common poverty and broke down rigid social barriers, transforming the game of golf into one of the most widely played sports in the world today.

Vardon and Ouimet were two men from different generations and vastly different corners of the world whose lives, unbeknown to them at the time, bore remarkable similarities, setting them on parallel paths that led to their epic battle at Brookline in the 1913 US Open. This collision resulted in the 'big bang' that gave rise to the sport of golf as we know it. In THE GREATEST GAME EVER PLAYED, Mark Frost tells their story, including along the way over a dozen of the game's seminal figures, within the dramatic framework offered by the 1913 tournament where they finally met, which became one of the most thrilling sports events in history.

Recensione:

An extraordinary book...[with] passages that were so convincing they made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up ( THE TIMES)

Mark Frost has done a wonderful job of capturing the moment of golf's awakening in America. His work is thoroughly researched ( Ben Crenshaw, 1999 US Ryder Cup Captain)

Brilliantly told... marries social history with sporting biography...vivid, often moving, portraits of the two protagonists ( SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

[A] great insight into how golf got its start in America, and the man who really introduced it: Francis Ouimet ( Ken Venturi)

Descrizione del libro:

What SEABISCUIT was to the early years of modern racing, this book is to the birth of modern golf - a classic, highly inspirational story about genuine heroes, national pride and the enduring friendship between America and Great Britain.
