Roger Schillerstrom’s Drawn to Golf is a different "look" at the game we love. For almost 20 years, Roger Schillerstrom has been providing editorial cartoons to several of the most respected and well-read publications produced by Crain Communications. In 1995, Golfweek magazine (another Crain product) asked Schillerstrom to turn his creative eye toward the game of golf and create cartoons to complement its weekly "commentary" pages. The pairing was an immediate success and it continues to this day. Drawn to Golf is a carefully selected collection of the most clever and insightful cartoons that Roger has produced for Golfweek over the past eight years. Few, if any, of golf’s most controversial, comical, or sad moments have been overlooked. From the stunning emergence of possibly the greatest player ever – Tiger Woods – to the tragic loss of fan-favorite Payne Stewart. From Jean Van de Velde’s collapse at Carnoustie, to David Duval’s breakthrough at the British Open. And from hot balls heading down the fairway, to hot tempers at the Solheim Cup.

In a game where players are expected to call their own penalties and scoring the least points leads to victory, decorum takes precedence over showmanship and philosophical questions become par for the course. Few other sports are as suited for ethical and metaphysical examination as golf. It is a game defined by dichotomies -- relaxing, yet frustrating, social, yet solitary -- and between these extremes there is room for much philosophical inquiry. In Golf and Philosophy: Lessons from the Links, a clubhouse full of skilled contributors tee off on a range of philosophical topics within the framework of the fairway. The book's chapters are arranged in the style of an eighteen-hole golf course, with the front nine exploring ethical matters of rationality and social civility in a world of moral hazards and roughs. The back nine pries even deeper, slicing into matters of the metaphysical, including chapters on mysticism, idealism, identity, and meaning. Taken together, the collection examines the intellectual nature of this beloved pastime, considering the many nuances of a sport that requires high levels of concentration, patience, and consistency, as well as upstanding moral character. Golf and Philosophy celebrates the joys and complexities of the game, demonstrating that golf has much to teach both its spectators and participants about modern life.

Golf, A Very Peculiar History' takes a sideways look at one of Britain's greatest exports, tracing its history from the earliest ball-in-hole games right up to the scandals that rock its current celebrities and tournaments, with a fair few mulligans in between. From its origins as a strictly men-only, exclusive sport, golf has matured a great deal through the ages and has distanced itself from the elitist pursuit it once was, today allowing players from all creeds and sexes. This ebook takes a look at how these prejudices have (sometimes) been overcome, while indulging you with some of the bizarrest stories known to the world of golf. Just remember, it's not always the caddie's fault...

Chris Ludlow is troubled by various problems, not least those relating to his girlfriend, Jane, and her unstable ex-husband. In search of a publisher for the memoirs of Derek Headlam, a renowned and prolific art faker, Chris secures a contract. Within days the publisher is murdered, and Chris and his brother, Max, are warned at the point of a gun to abandon the project. Are Headlam’s former partners in a scheme to sell his fakes into the art market covering their tracks? One of them is the mysterious ‘D’, ex-British Secret Service, and, like Headlam, a past associate of the traitor, Anthony Blunt. Meanwhile, Chris is helping his journalist friend, Toby Greenslade, to investigate the use of illegal drugs in golf, and golf pro, Jack Mason to expose an illegal betting scam in the game.

Growing up as a girl with a boy’s name, Wesley Hobbs was predestined to take the road less traveled. She spent her youth on the beautiful golf courses of Southwest Florida, and while her high school friends wanted to go to Florida colleges, she accepted a golf scholarship to Appalachian State University in the North Carolina mountains. In college, her friends wanted to date the Army ROTC boys, but she decided to join them. As an Army cadet, Wesley met a good, Christian, young man, Larry Bauguess, who stole her heart. They married during her senior year, and upon graduation, they entered the Army and served together as lieutenants and captains. They enjoyed a wonderful marriage for almost fourteen years and were blessed with two beautiful daughters. Tragedy struck in May 2007, when Larry was killed in action while serving overseas with the 82nd Airborne Division. Wesley and her daughters were at home at Fort Bragg when the notification team delivered the heartbreaking news. Wesley would learn that the lessons taught in church, the Army, and on the golf course would give her the strength to carry on. This is her story.

American Golf in the Great Depression

This account of professional golf during the Great Depression begins with a look at the "roaring 1920s" and how the game developed during this exciting decade. What a contrast to the Depression era--in which golf at all levels suffered but survived. The Depression years in general are covered and then the professional tour between 1931 and 1940 is examined in detail--the administrators (those who sold the tour to sponsors, the media and the public) and the many wonderful golfers. Much of this is set against the background of how difficult life was for most Americans. The book looks briefly at the post-Depression years (when the U.S. entered World War II) and how the top players fared. Despite the economic difficulties of the era, professional golf survived--largely due to the efforts of players and administrators, not all of whom have been sufficiently recognized by the game and its historians.

The Kingdom of Golf in America

For golf’s true enthusiasts, the game is far more—and far more complex—than a simple hobby, commodity, or slice of the sports industry. It is a physical and mental place to be, a community. It has a history, a hierarchy, laws, a language, and a literature. And in Richard J. Moss, it has a chronicler. From its beginnings in the northeastern United States in the 1880s, golf has seen its popularity, and its fortunes, wax and wane, affected by politics and economics, reflecting tensions between aristocratic and democratic impulses. The Kingdom of Golf in America traces these ups and downs, ins and outs, in the growth of golf as a community. Moss describes the development of the private club and public course and the impact of wealth and the consumer culture on those who play golf and those who watch. He shows that factors like race, gender, technology, suburbanization, and the transformation of the South that shaped the nation also shaped golf. The result is a unique, and uniquely entertaining, work of cultural history that shows us golf as a community whose story resonates far beyond the confines of the course. Purchase the audio edition.
