5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable read!, 20 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Grown at Glen Garden: How Golf Legends Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson Got Their Starts at the Same Course (Hardcover)
257 pages does not offer a great deal of space to go into precise detail of every aspect of the lives of two of the greatest golfers ever to play the game, especially when you throw in a little golf club history and incidental contemporary information as well. If you are looking for that you would be better served trying Dodson, Sampson or Companiotte.
What Grown at Glenn Garden does do however, is serve as both a great 'taster' introduction to both Hogan and Nelson, and offers a new slant by comparing and contrasting the two with insightful observation and well researched historical information. Having read this book you are likely to want to move onto a more detailed biography of each player (if you haven't already done so) as it really captures the flavour of the grind and hardship faced by touring professionals in the early mid 20th century. If you are already well acquainted with other individual biography's, as I was, you will still find plenty to interest you in this book and it will be a welcome addition to anyone's golf library. The incidental history regarding the golf club itself, the nearby Doctor Pepper factory and so on, provides a very interesting aside to the lives of the golfers and there some extremely well researched links between people and places that add colour to the story. Definitely worth giving it a go!
