'Bloody brilliant.' - Greg Norman

This book tells the magnificent, sometimes tragic, always inspiring stories of the greats of golf and how they lit up the world with their own brands of magic.

Since Old Tom Morris won three of the first four Open Championships in the 1860s at the famous St Andrews course, so many greats have vied for that prize since.

Did you know that Bobby Jones created the famous Augusta course? That Sam Sneed won three green jackets? Let's not forget Ben Hogan, Gene Sarazen, Gary Player (The King) and Jack Nicklaus. Then there was the magnificent Seve, the Great White Shark and Tiger.

And the women are here too: Karrie Webb, Jan Stephenson, Patty Berg, Annika Sorenstam and Mildred Ella Didrikson Zaharias, known as Babe after Babe Ruth because she was truly magnificent.

Written by sports writer and golf mad Matt Cleary - featuring interviews with Greg Norman, Gary Player, David Graham and Ian Baker-Finch - A Short History of Golf is one man's take on the highs and lows of the great game of golf.
