Since 1950, Golf Digest has brought together the finest editors, writers, photographers, and players to capture golf in all its forms. This book includes profiles and lush photography of the most dramatic courses: Augusta National, St. Andrews, Pine Valley, Merion, Pinehurst #2, Seminole; coverage of the great events: the U.S. Open, Masters, PGA Championship, British Open, and Ryder Cup; insights into the people who have shaped the game: Ben Hogan, Ken Venturi, Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead, and Nancy Lopez. Yet this is only half of Golf Digest. Instruction and education have always been an integral part of the magazine's content as well. Through the pages of Golf Digest, instructors such as David Leadbetter and Harvey Penick, and players such as Byron Nelson, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods have shared their talents and philosophies with the average golfer. An entire section of the book celebrates the importance of "how to play" with great articles, tips, and illustrations.

The 240-page anthology is further brought to life through the unrivaled gallery of Golf Digest illustrations--vintage photographs and artwork from the original articles, instructional photos including multi-frame sequences of golf's best swings, and beautiful large-format golf course photography. With such vivid text and powerful photography, you can cheer along with the galleries as they witness the greatest moments in golf history.
