Product description

Review

'This beautiful publication appears to match the majesty of Gleneagles itself and depict our wonderful game and Samuel Ryder's legacy in the manner most deserving' -- Ken Schofield, former European Tour chief executive.

'An informative and entertaining read, it certainly whets the appetite for a great competition next year' -- Alex Salmond

'I have always thought Gleneagles is one of the greatest places in the world to play golf' -- Jack Nicklaus

'Ed paints a unique portrait of Gleneagles, Scottish golf and the history of the Ryder Cup' -- Perthshire Advertiser

'In his engaging, polished publication Jewel in the Glen, Ed Hodge traces the Ryder Cup's Gleneagles connections and unearths one or two gems' -- Herald

'Fantastic book. It's a great read and I would highly recommend it' --Colin Montgomerie

'[B]rilliantly sets the scene for next year's Ryder Cup at Gleneagles with a seductive mixture of interview, anecdote and history' --Herald

'Hodge entertainingly recounts the history of the cup' --Scotsman

About the Author

Ed Hodge grew up in Perthshire, is a former Gleneagles caddy and employee and has enjoyed a writing relationship with the five-star resort for a number of years. A University of St Andrews modern history graduate with 11 years previous experience as a sports writer in Scotland, Ed is now PR & Media Executive for the Scottish Golf Union. This is his first book. Jack Nicklaus is globally regarded as the greatest golfer of all time. Together with fellow American Arnold Palmer and South African Gary Player, known as the 'Big Three', he is credited with turning golf into the major spectator sport it has become. Nicklaus was a key driver of change for the Ryder Cup, proposing the inclusion of European players to try to even up the competition after another comfortable win for the US over Great Britain in 1977; his influence will be as keenly felt at Gleneagles in 2014 after designing a number of changes to the PGA Centenary Course, where the battle for the Ryder Cup will be fought.
