Thoughts and sayings from the world's greatest golfers during one of the sport's golden eras: the 1920s. Modern golf, as it is practiced all over the world, developed in the last thirty years. And yet, today's busy, stressed, and often tech-oriented golfing audience can learn a lot from the legendary Walter Hagen and his fellow enthusiasts-especially how the best golf is played with logic and imagination. Though Hagen never published a book on the subject of golf instruction, he did teach and write about golf at numerous times throughout his life. The selections in Legendary Lessons bring together Hagen's musings on the mental approach to golf with those of several highly gifted golfing champions and distinguished chroniclers of the 1920s-including Bernard Darwin, Harold Hilton, Bobby Jones, Joyce and Roger Wethered, Ernest Jones, Alex Morrison, Henry Longhurst, Francis Ouimet, Grantland Rice, Gene Sarazen, Harry Vardon, O. B. Keeler, and several others-to identify the patterns involved in the method of a sportsman. This book explores golf as a performing art in the light of the champions' experience as it began to develop and evolve throughout the twentieth century.
