Short Description

The game of golf originated, grew and thrived in 18th and 19th century Scotland. Wooden clubs were used to hit wooden balls across the natural dunes and valleys of the Scottish coastline. The game spread across to the United States in the late 1800s. Some of the game’s greatest players come from America, from Bobby Jones, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods to Patty Berg, Kathy Whitworth, and Nancy Lopez. The rest of the world caught up quickly, however, producing legends like South African Gary Player and Australian Greg Norman on the men’s side, and female stars like Sweden’s Annika Sörenstam and Australia’s Karrie Webb. Today, a new generation of players from Jordan Spieth to Inbee Park is leading the way into the future. Golf faces its challenges in modern day America, as it booms in places like Asia. Each book in the Inside the World of Sports series takes you from the very beginning of a sport to a look at its future. Inside these pages, learn more about golf’s greatest moments, iconic athletes, and what the future holds for the game.
