Format: Hardcover
Bought this for my dad in celebration of the British Open anniversary. I don't even like golf but after a sneaky look at the first chapter I couldn't put this book down! An absolutely fascinating biography of the father of golf. An absolute must-read for anyone who has ever played, watched or spectated the game.

I would maintain that Tom Morris is the godfather of our modern golf
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.

Simply put, this book is the best for several generations. With superb detail on the life of Tom Morris, this book is the finest book on Tom Morris, even better than WW Tulloch, published in 1907. This book is the benchmark by which all golf history books are measured. Truly a seismic and yet entertaining book.

This book is absolutely first class. I am a long-standing student of early golf and thought I had a pretty good knowledge of the early history of St.Andrews golf, but this book not filled in many holes, but brought much more detailed history of Morris, his family and the evolution of St.Andrews to my notice.
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)

I bought this for a friend and very happy. My only gripe is one of the pages has been folded as a bookmark. It looks like the mark has been ironed out but it just ddetracts slightly. I will now never do this myself again. Otherwise happy
