Charles B. MacDonald’s engaging and wide-ranging memoir. He was sent from Chicago to Scotland in the 1870s, where, at St. Andrews, “I was playng regularly with the best golfers of the day, young Tom Morris, David Strath, Tom Kidd, et al”, and the memoir continues with recollections of great American and British players and courses up through the 1920s.
One of the classics of twentieth-century golf writing.
