9780759680197: Golf History: Unusual Facts, Figures, and Little Known Trivia, Book One, from 1400 to 1960

'Golf is a good walk spoiled' if you choose to believe American humorist Mark Twain. Or perhaps its popularity can be traced back to our basic instincts of loving to take long walks and hitting rocks with a stick. Whatever the reason, our fascination of hitting a little white ball into a small distant hole has endured the test of time for over five hundred years. As you read this book you will discover a collection of golf memorabilia, bizarre incidences, little known tidbits plus an array of golf folklore. While this may not dramatically improve your ball striking abilities on the golf course, it is certain to give you a unique insight to the world of golf from its earliest known origins. As you are browsing through the passages within this book you will be following in the footsteps of those who journeyed down the fairways ahead of you into the history of golf. During your sojourn you will be amazed at the answers to questions like these.Which two U.S. President's names are closely associated with the Walker Cup?What does a penny pack of garden seeds and the Ryder Cup have in common?Why did an indignant Scottish gentleman tell Sam Snead 'My God Sir! That's St. Andrews.'?How did golf balls evolve from round wooden balls to today's modern high tech missiles?Fore. Mulligan. Bogey. Caddie. 19th Hole. What is the origin of these commonly used golf terms?What two famous celebrities were caught playing golf at an exclusive private country club in their undershorts?

L'autore:

My personal journey into the world of golf began atthe age of five at the Jerome Country Club in southeastern Idaho. It is herethat my father, a Greenskeeper, gave me hickory-shafted mashie (5 iron) whichwas cut down to my size. From this early introduction golf has had asignificant influence on my life. From managing golf courses to teachingstudents to be golf course superintendents and club professionals, I have had afifty-five year love affair with the sport.My fascination with the heritage and traditions ofgolf were piqued when I was a professor at College of the Desert, a two-yearcommunity college in southern California. One of the courses I taught wasCountry Club Management for students who were enrolled in the Golf ManagementProgram where they were preparing to become golf professionals.It was while teaching this class that I realize mostgolfers have very little knowledge of the history of the sport they love. As Ideveloped lectures on the history of golf, the germ of an idea for a series ofbooks was formulated. Myths, legends, facts, records, bizarre events, personalmemories and unusual trivia have been included in these books for yourenjoyment.I selected a writing style that allows you to read asingle passage, a page or a chapter in whatever order appeals to you. I alsochose to write each passage so it stands by itself and the informationcontained within completes a small piece of golf's history.Melvin J. Robey
