Editorial Reviews

Review

The Masters and British Open may be golf's most coveted major titles, but the U.S. Open is considered the most grueling and difficult to win. The exhilaration of claiming the national championship comes through well... [ Williams and Trostel]...chose not to describe all results, but rather took the most unique and iconic, and grouped them by theme... Each section is led off by an essay and has from four to seven championships that fit the theme, illustrated with USGA archive images. This approach allowed the authors to combine champions of different eras to show how the traits required to win are timeless. (Cliff Schrock Golf World 2013-05-20)

Since the inception of the U.S. Open in 1895, its goal has been to identify the best golfer of the year. Williams and Trostel (director and senior curator, respectively, U.S. Golf Assn. Museum) present the story of the Open, including carefully crafted essays by other contributors. Of particular note is Mike Davis and Hunki Yun's piece, Golf's Biggest Stage: The U.S. Open Course, which details the role of the course itself as the silent competitor. The text is supplemented by an impressive array of photographs as well as images of items in the museum's collections... Those who follow golf championships will enjoy this title. (Steven Silkunas Library Journal 2013-06-15)

Pictures are worth tens of thousands of words in this fabulously illustrated chronicle of the greatest moments at the most testing tournament in golf. (Winnipeg Free Press 2013-11-30)

Lovers of the game will find this work an interesting and fun read and will enjoy the historical element that the authors bring to this volume due to their work at the museum. (Shannon Graff Hysell American Reference Books Annual 2014 2014-09-01)
