Golf - The Woman's Game

Click to Order: wis golf: Golf

This lavishly illustrated book documents one hundred years of participation by American women in the legendary game of golf. Women quickly took to golf when it arrived in America in the late 1880s, and with enthusiasm and persistence established a foothold in a sport highly guarded by men.

The essence of this increasingly popular sport is captured through the recollections of, and interviews with, many champions, including Patty Berg, Babe Didrickson Zaharias, Peggy Kirk Bell, Louise Suggs, Kathy Whitworth, Betsy Rawls, Juli Inkster, and others.

Glorious photographs of the players on and off the most famous courses show women in action. The changing fashions in women's golf attire, along with equipment designed for the female player, are featured as well.

Opening with an insider's reflection on the sport by veteran Nancy Lopez, the book culminates with a look at today's exciting scene: the LPGA tour with its multimillion dollar purse; the competitive state of high school and college golf teams; and the expanding business of women's golf. This celebratory story is sure to stir any player's dreams of the perfect round of golf.
