Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A single-volume collection of the very best in golf writing — the ultimate golf anthology

With a foreword by the legendary Arnold Palmer and a brilliant introduction by the celebrated golf journalist John Garrity, A Passion for Golf includes gripping pieces about the great tournaments; comic pieces about the frustrations of the game and its elusive nuances; insights into the mystique of the game and the practicalities of play; profiles of the great players; descriptions of the majestic courses and the championship moments that have made golf the game it is today. The fifty selections boast many of the premier writers on golf, among them such knockouts as Rick Reilly, John Feinstein, John Updike, Dave Barry, Bob Greene, Alex Morrison, Gary Smith, Lewis Grizzard, Arnold Haultin, Herbert Warren Wind, Gene Sarazen, Sam Snead, Ben Hogan, George Plimpton, Dan Jenkins, and Harvey Penick.

No player will be able to resist delving into A Passion for Golf. It is bound to become the gift every golf enthusiast — from duffer and armchair spectator to champion and single-digit handicap — will want to have.
