In An Enduring Passion
, veteran golf writer and commentator Jaime Diaz tees off at St. Andrews, Scotland, where the game was born, and takes readers on a wonderful tour of golf’s history and culture. Here, for instance, are profiles of quintessential pros Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, and Byron Nelson; the evolution of the golf club and other equipment; golf fashion and etiquette; the legendary Arnold Palmer-Jack Nicklaus rivalry; the great courses and their designers; and Tiger Woods and today’s big golf boom.
An Enduring Passion brings the subject to life with imaginative interactive items like facsimiles of the original course map of St. Andrews, the famous scorecard documenting the 1962 Palmer/Nicklaus face-off at Oakmont, and other memorabilia of the game.
