Summary

Summary

This book takes a look at the story of competitive golf, covering the history of tournament golf-the four Majors, the drama of the Ryder Cup through the years, and the history of both the US PGA tour and the European Tour-the effect of the amateur game and the 'greats' who have passed through its ranks, the rise of women's golf and other leading events throughout the world. Derek Lawrenson then chooses his top 200 male golfers of all time, his top 50 female players and the World's top 100 courses-a choice that will be sure to provoke much debate among the golfing fraternity.
