Gettin’ to the Dance Floor: An Oral History of American Golf


Product Description

Al Barkow

Foreword by Jaime Diaz

To a golfer the “dance floor” means the putting green, but in the early days of pro golf, “getting to the dance floor” also meant joining the Tour–and enduring bad food, constant travel and infrequent pay. Al Barkow interviewed the pro’s who got to that early dance floor, and here tells their
stories in their own words–a unique document from golf’s pioneer days, with first-hand accounts from Lighthorse Harry Cooper, Gene Sarazen, Sam Snead, and many more.

Al Barkow is a former editor of Golf Magazine and the author of many golf books, among them That’s Golf and Sam: the One and Only Sam Snead.
