Possibly, this explains their differences and similarities. One who came from the country club environ might more easily been able to afford the luxury of amateur status and gentlemanly approach, while the other clawed and fought for each millimeter of turf to get and stay on the top.
Jones is already a bright star in our past, and this book shall help to place Sir Walter in his rightful place in our rich golf heritage. We don't consider and give enough credit that without these two Arnie and Jack wouldn't have been able to achieve for golf what they did. I've heard Arnie acknowledge this as well, the class act that he is.
Golf has much to feed on in its history and continue for the generations to come. This wonderful addition to its literary heritage is an brilliantly composed and written volume.
The author introduces us to the two most accomplished golfer of their era.
This book is for anyone who not only enjoys the game of golf but also its historical context.
Very good and enjoyable read.
