The book about the "shot" and much more
on 10 August 2012
You would have thought that the stories about Bobby Jones would have been told by now. Not so this book by local Doctor Steven Reid provides a new slant on the Open Championship of 1926 at Royal Lytham. Not only does is provide insights into the main protagonists but also includes a wealth of interesting information about the course at the time, the Club and the Claret Jug. Its also covers the famous shot at the 17th hole and the efforts to establish exactly where it was played from. An excellent read for those wanting to a know a little more that just the results of the Championship.
