Synopsis

Bernard Darwin could easily have settled into a privileged life as a respected lawyer, one who also just happened to be the grandson of Charles Darwin. But his conventional upbringing didn't prevent him from choosing a different path, abandoning the relative security of the legal profession to follow his first and only passion - the game of golf. While Darwin was no slouch on the links - he was captain of his golf team at Cambridge and twice reached the semifinals of the British Amateur Championships - he achieved far greater notoriety with his pen than with his club. This collection gathers the finest of Darwin's writing, and is a celebration of a life devoted to a love of the game of golf.
