He laid the fundamentals for what we consider the world of golf NOW.
So I welcomed an excellent review of his life and activities in the
biography, after more than a hundred years after his death.
An exellently reseached book that the golf world needed given his importance.
Compares very favourably with my previous best easily-read book "Tommy's Honour" by Kevin Cook. (Which incidentally could well do for inclusion in the Kindle library. It was after all the runner up in the 2007 best sports book category)
