MANY times I have been strongly advised to write a book on golf, and now I offer a volume to the great and increasing public who are devoted to the game. So far as the instructional part of the book is concerned, I may say that, while I have had the needs of the novice constantly in mind, and have endeavoured to the best of my ability to put him on the right road to success, I have also presented the full fruits of my experience in regard to the fine points of the game, so that what I have written may be of advantage to improving golfers of all degrees of skill. There are some things in golf which cannot be explained in writing, or for the matter of that even by practical demonstration on the links. They come to the golfer only through instinct and experience. But I am far from believing that, as is so often said, a player can learn next to nothing from a book. If he goes about his golf in the proper manner he can learn very much indeed. The services of a competent tutor will be . . .

In 1913, golf's first superstar went up against a green 20-­year-­old amateur. It was the birth of modern golf. Harry Vardon and Francis Ouimet came from different worlds and different generations, but their passion for golf set them on parallel paths that would collide in the most spectacular match the sport has ever known. Vardon had escaped a life of poverty in Britain to achieve universal recognition as the greatest champion in the game's history. Ouimet, a virtual unknown from Massachusetts, was only three years removed from his youthful career as a lowly caddie and worshipped Vardon. When these unlikely opponents finally came together in their legendary battle at the 1913 U.­S. Open, the world's reaction to its remarkable drama and heart-­stopping climax gave rise to the sport of golf as we know it today.
Weaving together the stories of Vardon and Ouimet to create his narrative, Mark Frost has crafted a uniquely involving, intimate epic: equal parts sports biography, sweeping . . .

A copy of Harry Vardon's "The Complete Golfer" should be in the bedside drawer of every person even remotely interested in Golf.

Harry was one of the best to ever play the game, having won 67 major tournaments - and even though he's been gone for over 70 years, he still holds the record for having won the Open Championship six times, and in one stretch he won 14 tournaments in a row.

Notwithstanding his outstanding successes on the links, he may be even more widely known by the grip he promoted - the 'Vardon Grip,­' used by most professionals... an overlapping grip that Vardon learned from another golfer named Johnny Laidlay, a championship Scottish amateur golfer who invented the grip.

Vardon was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974. In 2000, Golf Digest ranked him as the 13th best golfer of all time.

This book is a must-­read for every golfer, and makes the perfect gift for the person who has everything. It also includes numerous photos and graphics that . . .

Author:

This is a short and casual collection of golf lessons from the golfing greats of the early 20th century. Each pro (or amateur), is assigned to a particular golf shot in which he was known to excel above his competitors. Great stories are mentioned in passing, such as Lawrence Ayton's recollection of his father losing the British Open in 1885 by two strokes, after having scored an 11 on the 17th Road Hole at St. Andrews. However, he out-­did the old man years later in a similar competition with a 15 on the same hole!

This is a great golf classic, especially transposed for Kindle with an Active Table of Contents, and "clickable access" to over 20 illustrations.

A great read and a "must have" for lovers of the golf classics.

Author:

A short and casual set of golf lessons by one of the world's greatest golfers, Harry Vardon. The beauty of the book is in its personal nature, and Mr. Vardon's recounting of many real life (and very humorous) stories. He tells of the time that he was chased around a putting green by a vicious white bull; and how a Scottish caddy persuaded him to purchase a niblick after he scored a 9 on a hole. ("Ye'll have a niblick this afternoon, or I'll no’ carry for ye.­") And how another young caddy described a clergyman who often lost his temper on the course. ("Big blue pimples would come out on his face and you'd think he was going to have a fit.­") And then there's the story about the man who missed the ball completely, yet lost it at the same time...­oh well..­we shouldn't give the whole book away...:­)

One can gather that Mr. Vardon did not believe in all work and no play.

Braid, James , How to play golf
When a man first decides that he will devote himself to the game of golf he has generally something to unlearn at the very outset, even though he has never attempted to strike a ball with a driver in his life. In nine cases out of ten he must abandon all his preconceived notions about the game. Hi must realise that so far from being the easy thing to play that it seems when one watches a capable exponent driving long balls and placing short shots quite near to the hole almost every time, it is an exceedingly difficult thing, and that proficiency, even in the case of the most athletic and adaptable persons, is onl^ to be acquired as the result of years of the most patient and painstaking practice and of the most careful thought and study of the scientific side of the game. No game demands more scientific accuracy than golf, and there is no game in which shots that are not well played more surely meet with their just punishment. In the reverse
