Book Description

The perfect gift for anybody who has ever swung a club or marveled at the skill of touring professionals on television, THE GREATEST GOLF STORIES EVER TOLD is a compulsively readable collection of some of the most entertaining and insightful reading on the subject of golf.

Contributions include some well-known works from renowned writers of the genre, such as Dan Jenkins, Herbert Warren Wind, and John Updike, as well as some rare, lesser-known gems from Gary McCord, Bud Shrake, and the great F. Scott Fitzgerald.
