Product Overview

Just in time for Father's Day and a new golf season, "Classic Shots" showcases the best 250 photographs of the sport from the 1920s to the present day, culled from the USGA's archive of more than half a million images. While some of these photos have appeared in print over the years, many have never been published before.
Among the many highlights are a single image showing the great Bob Jones' swing sequence... Payne Stewart's 1999 U.S. Open-winning putt at Pinehurst Country Club... Arnold Palmer's 1960 win at Cherry Hill... dramatic shots of Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Michelle Wie, and other golf superstars. The photographs are organized into five geographic regions: Northeast, South, Mid-Continent, West, and International. Accompanying essays introduce each region, examining particular images and telling the stories behind them. An essay by "New York Times" columnist and best-selling author Thomas L. Friedman underscores the unique qualities of the game of golf and its enduring impact upon its players and fans.
From memorable moments of the game to casual portraits of legendary players, from striking landscapes of world-renowned courses to fascinating artifacts and memorabilia, "Classic Shots" is a unique visual treasure that will delight and inspire golfers of all ages.
