Thirty Years of Championship Golf by Gene Sarazen
Thirty Years of Championship Golf
First published in 1950, this is the story of one of the USA’s most enduring golfers. More than a sports autobiography, it includes Sarazen’s thoughts about golf technique, his golfing contemporaries, his family and friends. Born in New York state, Sarazen was the son of a poor Italian immigrant family who began his career as a caddie and went on to win the American Open (twice), the British Open, the PGA Championships (three times) and the Masters. In addition, he was elected honorary member of the Royal and Ancient Club at St Andrews. All of these sporting moments are covered in detail.
