5.0 étoiles sur 5 This wonderfully written book captures for me 2 septembre 2014
Par Gordon R. Conolly - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As a 66 year old who is in semi retirement ( whatever that is!) and tries to play golf three times a week , the 2 ball team event has always seemed the most enjoyable golf.
This wonderfully written book captures for me, why I feel this way.
I can therefore quickly understand and relate to the special challenges of this format when it's not just dealing with the unique characteristics of each hole ( and of course in this case what amazing golf holes they are - Cypress Point an emerald in the pantheon! Worth the read if only for the wonderful analysis of Cypress Point
But the 2 ball game
it is also the particular individual challenges that each player must face to best respond to the team situation so that one plus one equals three times the effect
Then,superimpose on this the fact that the players are first an unbeaten amateur national team of much fame Harvie Ward and Ken Venturi who find themselves much to their surprise and unique fortune,pitted against probably the two greatest golfers of their time , indeed perhaps any time- the Great Ben Hogan and the amazing talent of Byron Nelson !

These two legends of vastly differing style and temperaments and motivation who only once played together in a two ball- and on this day ,in a classic example of for the enjoyment of competition ,rather than for trophy or dollars

How therefore could this not be a special event ?

But the fact also is that the match played actually exceeds any possible expectations ,at all the various possible levels ( sustained skills of all four players at their very best, classic pressure moments for each individual, prolonged uncertainty as to outcomes and for the true golf spirit and enjoyment.

Mark Frost has captured all of this . Thank you!
4.0 étoiles sur 5 How US golf Evolved from Amateur to Professional in 20 Years 24 août 2016

A good account of four trailblazers of U.S. golf in the 1940 - 60s, told interestingly between holes of a 1956 impromptu 18-hole best ball match between then-best active players Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson, Ken Venturi and Harvie Ward. Frost is a good golf story teller whose occasional run-on sentences could use a decent editor, but otherwise, entertaining account of a spectacular one off match and the complete life stories of four successful golfers who paved the way for fellows named Palmer and Nicklaus, and yes, the entire PGA. A must read for any serious golf history understanding. Includes a short history of the development of Cypress Point and the Monterey Peninsula.

Being an old pro, elected to the PGA in 1972 I could really get into this book. The 2 best pro's and the 2 best amateur's in the world
going at it hard and heavy on the worlds most beautiful piece of real estate. I have met Byron and you would never guess that he would be involved in this match, of course he was many decades younger at the time of the battle. A classic that will possibly live on forever. One of my all time favorite all time reads. Highly Recommended!

This is an excellent story of four of the greats of golf, and the marvelous "casual" match they played one day at Cypress Point, one of the sport's iconic courses. Golf lovers and lovers of golf literature especially will enjoy it.

I consider myself a fair student of golf history and I had never heard of this event. I had also never heard of Harvie Ward. This tale weaves in SO much golf history! You have the link to Francis Ouimet's huge upset in the US Open (Eddie Lowery). You have the stories of two pros (Hogan and Nelson) who were so instrumental in the transition of professional golf from secondary entertainment status to recognition as one of the major sports we now know. As a Hogan fan, I found this new info particularly interesting.

From start to finish, a fascinating book.
