Golf's Greatest Moments: An Illustrated History By the Game's Finest Writers
The charm of golf is simply this, explains A. A. Milne in one of the delightful selections from Golf’s Greatest Moments - It is the best game in the world at which to be bad.... The joy of driving a ball straight after a week of slicing, the joy of putting a mashie shot dead.... Every stroke we bad players make we make in hope. It is never so bad but it might have been worse; it is never so bad but we are confident of doing better next time. And if the next stroke is good, what happiness fills our soul. This lavishly illustrated anthology of great golf writing, by outstanding sports writers, humorists, and essayists who have fallen under the spell of golf's many charms, covers every aspect of the game.
