Professional golf weavers an influential spell wherever the game is played and enjoyed. It has prevailed, and ultimately bloomed, in Australia for 100 years now. From the earliest days Australians have been spellbound by the game of golf, propelling it to one of our few clearly national pastimes. Along the way we have enjoyed the privilege of introducing to the world some of the great professional artists: Ferrier, Thomson, Nagle, Graham, Norman, Grady, Baker-Finch and Elkington are a few of the pros who have made an indelible mark - headline stars in world golf's lustrous firmament. This book traces the first century of professional golf in Australia, the complete and official history of the professional game here. It examines the turbulent beginnings, the chequered growth, the storms, the vivid successes, and the fascinating characters who played significant parts, not to mention the funny, and sometimes sad, moments. This is not only an absorbing review of the first century of the professional game in Australia, it is an invaluable record. No golfer's library could be complete without it.
