Product Overview

See the 1950s through the lens of Eisenhower’ s favorite pastime

Public awareness of President Eisenhower’ s obsession with golf led to his being simultaneously credited with the surge in the sport’ s popularity and criticized for running the country from a golf course. By his second term, however, Ike and golf represented a bygone era because, more than any other sport in America, golf’ s moneyed culture remained insulated from the race and class struggles that were transforming the country in the postwar period. "Don’ t Ask What I Shot" tells the story of how Ike’ s golf game functioned as a dual symbol of progress and provincialism. It also details Eisenhower’ s friendships with Bobby Jones, Arnold Palmer, Bob Hope, and Winston Churchill, among others.
