A Short History of Golf
A Short History of Golf is an absorbing and occasionally funny look at the seminal moments and great characters of golf through the ages. It’s about how champions inspired generations, how great matches excited the senses, how innovation evolved and changed the game. How media covered it, how people consumed it. How a great industry formed around it. Written in sports writer Matt Cleary’s conversational prose, and featuring interviews withGreg Norman, Gary Player, David Graham, Ian Baker-Finch and Scott van Pelt, to name a few, A Short History of Golf is one man’s take on the journey the game took to be what it is today.
