Golf’s Golden Grind: A History of the PGA Tour


Product Description

Al Barkow

Foreword by Jaime Diaz

“At last, the definitive and delightful history of what it’s really like out there.” —Dave Anderson, New York Times

Here is a rollicking, anecdotal history of golf’s PGA tour–from one of golf’s best writers. The PGA Tour’s beginnings can be traced 1895, when Willie Dunn battled Willie Park, Jr. for an unprecedented $200 purse. By the mid-70s, when this book leaves off, the Tour was Big-Money Golf–huge purses, endorsement contracts, and all the celebrity of modern-day sport. How it got there is the subject of this richly informative and entertaining book.
