Editorial Reviews


Leave it to the unsinkable Barkow to come up with a lighter-than-air collection of the game's trivia that seamlessly floats from the esoteric to the essential. (

Golf's All-Time Firsts, Mosts, Leasts, and a Few Nevers will prepare you to win any bar bet you'll ever enter about golf.

Here [Barkow] has compiled what may be the best cheat sheet to date for any golf trivia contest. (Library Journal)

Barkow has included lesser-known and obscure nuggets and oddities. . . . For true trivia fans, the book is a goldmine.
(Les Schupak The Met Golfer)

“A…title that captures every aspect of this enjoyable compilation of statistics and little-known facts about the game of golf”

“Barkow is no stranger to the golf industry. He’s written for Golf Digest, Gold World, Links Magazinem Golf Tips Magazine, and a host of other publications. He’s published a dozen golf related books.”

“In the first 173 pages of Golf’s all-time Firsts Barkow digs deep into the record books to come up with some interesting facts.”

“Readers could spend hours sitting at the 19th hold with Al Barkow’s interesting read. In addition, the last few pages of the book contain a personal record area for the book;s owner. You too can record your personal firsts, mosts, leasts, and nevers.”
(RV Life)

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
We are going to the final round of the US Open Golf Tournament in San Francisco this year, and I thought this book would make a marvelous backdrop for conversations about golfing. And it is. I don't care so much about the statistics, because those change all the time but the historical trivia is delightful, & interesting. Did you know Lefty Stackhouse holds the record for the most clubs broken during one temper tantrum? 14! First Englishman to win the PGA - happened in 1916 - but you will have to read the book to find out who it was! The reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because some of it will become outdated before long, but that may be a good thing... no matter how it changes, golf will always be a game of kings - and Al Barkow's presentation of history, tidbits of golfing hysteria and humor may be THE book passed around the locker room this season.
