Janke, Ken

Firsts, Facts, Feats, & Failures in the World of Golf

€ 20.95

The Rules of Golf defines the game as: "playing a ball with a club from the teeing ground into the hole by a stroke or successive strokes in accordance with the Rules." Sounds simple enough. What could happen?

In Firsts, Facts, Feats, and Failures in the World of Golf, renowned golf historian and lifetime player Ken Janke entertains you with all the wildest and most devastating stories that are as much a part of the game as the course itself. Ken`s entertaining stories cover such groundbreaking firsts as Allan Robertson, considered the first golf professional (the skins golfers won`t be surprised how he made his money); to such nuts-and-bolts facts as no official golf ball in the world can be smaller than 1.68" nor be heavier than 1.62 ounces; to such astonishing feats as Tiger Woods setting eighteen records and tying six others on his way to winning the 1997 Masters; to such heartbreaking failures as Robert Clark conceding a hole after a long, unsuccessful search for his ball to later find it was in the cup from a hole-in-one shot!

Firsts, Facts, Feats, and Failures in the World of Golf is a brilliant collection of stories about some of golf`s memorable moments. Every fan of the game will pore over the amusing yarns of the record-breaking feats and failures of the pros as well as the personal triumphs and tragedies of everyday golfers.
