From the cover: “For many people there has never been a finer writer on the game of golf than Henry Longhurst. As well as being the golf correspondent of the Sunday Times, he was a regular contributor to Golf Illustrated and for a period of 15 years from 1954 to 1969, he had his own fortnightly column which gave him free rein to expound on practically everything connected with golf, and therefore life itself, for as he was fond of saying: ‘The more I think about golf, the more I think it’s like life’. This is a selection of the best of his writing from the magazine, comprising over 130 articles.
