book description
One of the best ways to understand the history of golf is to witness the design and evolution of clubs, balls, tees, and accessories. The Art of Golf Antiques is illustrated with more than 85 photographs from the United States Golf Association Museum, which houses the largest collection of golf memorabilia in the country. Readers will take a close-up look at the earliest feather golf balls, mid-19th century clubs from the Royal Perth Golfing Society, Ben Hogan's private collection, and much more. Filled with anecdotes and observations from writers, players, and commentators, The Art of Golf Antiques illustrates the tools and traditions of a beloved sport.
