I grew up the same neck of the woods as Cooke and was delighted to find he became a golf enthusiast in later life. These writings touch upon his Lancashire youth, his meetings with golfing greats (he clearly adores the great Bobby Jones) and US Presidents, and the cultural differences between golf in the UK and US.
The essays are witty, warm, insightful and full of memorable stories. If you love golf, I cannot recommend these writings highly enough.
