From the Publisher
Editors Note A chronicle of a lesser-known 1956 golf match documents how Harvie Ward and Ken Venturi competed against the leading players as a result of a bet between sponsors Eddie Lowery and George Coleman, in a competition that helped promote golf into a professional sport.
Annotation In 1956 two millionaires placed a wager on whether two of golf's retired greats, Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson, could defeat Havie Ward and Ken Venturi, two of the shining stars of the amateur circuit. The match would become part of golfing lore, and Mark Frost presents the game in its full grandeur, giving a blow-by-blow of the battle on the links, providing colorful portraits of the players and characters involved in the match, and showing how the match was a turning point in the history of the sport.
