For those who are interested in the real "glory" era of golf this provides an entertaining and insightful story. This guy wrote a book on Hogan too so he offers a good insight into what was going in his (Hogan's) mind.
A relatively short read given that it encompasses one summer but overall quite enjoyable and reflective.

"...
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee."

Sonnet 18, William Shakespeare

Curt Simpson did his very best to make this summer eternal with a highly entertaining, comprehensively researched and well written biography of 1960, the golfing years when the greats emerged and overlapped and, some say, modern golf began; some say modern golf emerged in 1913 with the US Open and Vardon, Hagen and Ouimet but the discussion is fascinating and in this book Simpson has certainly added to the conversation. There is a wonderful portrayal of Hogan, Palmer and Nicklaus as well as many other golfing greats.

Recommended.
