The sport of golf is measured in centuries, yet the past two decades have marked the most compelling transformations of the game. To celebrate twenty years of Golf Channel's twenty-four-hour coverage, author Chris Millard and some of golf's favorite on-air personalities recount the best stories of the era. Relive the greatest major championships, the top shots, and some of the moments that players wish never happened. Among them Payne Stewart's last and greatest victory at the U.S. Open, Tiger Woods' masterful chip at the 2005 Masters, the U.S. vs. Europe duels at the Ryder Cup, and Jean Van de Velde's epic meltdown in the Barry Burn. From the return to golf-course minimalism to the rise of the sports in Asia, golf's biggest trends and challenges are examined here as the sport now looks to the future.

Golf is a Scottish game. It has been played by the Scots for centuries, and Scotland is its spiritual and cultural home. This is a book devoted to one nation's devotion to a game of stick and ball which today casts its enchantment over the entire world. The beginnings of golf and its early development are shrouded in mystery and are part fact and part fable. The Scottish Golf Book separates one from the other as it traces the early history of golf to the multimillion-dollar, worldwide obsession it has become today. Images from the earliest days of Scottish photography recall titanic battles between the early superstars of the game, while the modern lens takes the reader on a spectacular and magical journey around the historic, the classic, and the hidden treasures of Scotland's finest courses.

Legendary instructor Harvey Penick enchanted students with his homespun approach to golf. He also mentored a small core of successful teachers who now carry on his simplicity, humor, and rock-solid belief in the fundamentals. One of his students, Barbara Puett, together with Jim Apfelbaum, has written a book that demystifies golf's complexities from a woman's unique perspective. A Woman's Own Golf Book acknowledges that millions of women attracted to the game have other demands on their time. A companion to Puett's sold-out clinics and seminars, the book features beautiful illustrations, and a package that like the memory of her beloved teacher, will stand the test of time.

Elegant and perceptive musings on the world’s greatest game from the dean of American golf writers This illuminating collection features many of Hebert Warren Wind’s most famous essays, including “Jones Breaks Through,” his masterful portrait of Bobby Jones’s first major championship, won in an epic eighteen-hole playoff against Bobby Cruickshank at the 1923 US Open, and “North to the Links of Dornoch,” an evocative travelogue that established the venerable course in the Scottish Highlands as one of golf’s premier destinations. Wind captures Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Byron Nelson, and Ken Venturi in their prime, and brings readers back to an earlier era when Harry Vardon ruled the links. He profiles golf’s female pioneers—Mickey Wright, Babe Didrikson Zaharias, and Joyce Wethered—and sings the praises of Bernard Darwin, “the greatest writer on golf the world has ever known.” In his Sports Illustrated deadline ode, “The 1958 Masters: Palmer at the Fateful Corner,” Wind brings Arnold Palmer’s first major championship to vivid life and coins Augusta National’s most iconic and enduring term: “Amen Corner.” Lyrical, evocative, and insightful, Herbert Warren Wind’s Golf Book is a must-read for students of the game and fans of classic sports journalism.

The Book of Golf Quotations is simply the best collection of quoted wit and wisdom on the game of golf, the sport that has defined generations of politicians, footballers, celebrities and ordinary folk with plenty of spare time and a bewildering array of equipment and brightly-coloured clothing. And, of course, professional golfers. The range of quotes is as huge as a Tiger Woods tee shot, with quips from such diverse leading lights as Monty and Mad Mac, Wodehouse and Woosie, Churchill and Bobby Cruickshank, Bob Hope and Ben Hogan, George Bernard Shaw and Tom Shaw - and fully updated to include all the great quotes and comments of a new generation of golfing heroes from Seve to Sam Torrance, other famous people who play golf, and famous people who think golf courses should be abandoned and allowed to seed wild grasses and trees instead. With all the experience and gravitas of Jack Nicklaus, and as funny as a pair of Darren Clarke's trousers, The Book of Golf Quotations is the last word for every fan of frolics on the fairway, on the green or at the nineteenth hole. 'This game is great, and very strange.' Seve Ballesteros 'The best year of my life was when I was eleven. I got straight As, had two recesses a day, and the cutest girlfriend, and won 32 tournaments that year. Everything's been downhill since.' Tiger Woods 'At least he can't cheat on his score - because all you have to do is look back down the fairway and count the wounded.' Bob Hope 'There were three things in the world that he held in the smallest esteem - slugs, poets, and caddies with hiccups.' P G Wodehouse 'You can't birdie all 18 holes if you don't birdie the first three.' Nick Faldo
