A Pictorial History Of American Golf

by Willow Creek Press, A Pictorial History Of American Golf Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Pictorial History Of American Golf books, Shortly after golf first came to America in 1888, John Reid and several friends laid out an informal three-hole course in a pasture across the street from his Yonkers home. Although ridiculed publicly and privately for their keen interest in an apparently silly game, these early golfers persisted, the game flourished, and courses multiplied. A scant seven years later, the New York Times reported: "In the history of American field sports there can be found no outdoor pastime that developed and attained such popularity in such a relatively short period of time as the game of golf." Here is the diverse history of how golf took new roots in America as viewed through a fascinating collection of rare photographs, with narrative drawn from the pages of period publications. Follow the game from humble beginnings to refinements in both courses and equipment.

Golf Links

by Charles D. Burgess, Golf Links Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Golf Links books, This book tells the story of the Scottish golf professionals who came to America in 1888 and struggled to earn a living and the respect of the wealthy amateur golf establishment and the United States Golf Association who controlled the sport. Charles "Chay" Burgess--founder of the New England PGA, teacher of three American national champions, and the savior of the Ryder cup--learned the game on ancient seaside links and competed against British greats. His arrival in the U.S. dramatically influenced the growth of golf and the reconciliation of differences between amateurs and professionals. In 1913, the American Francis Ouimet--a working-class unknown under Burgess' tutelage--won the U.S. Open against British celebrities Ted Ray and Harry Vardon. His triumph brought the game to mainstream America.
