Phil Tresidder's writing brought to life the game of golf and its characters.' JACK NICKLAUS

For several decades Phil Tresidder was considered the doyen of Australian golf writers. The pieces here, culled from both his published and unpublished work, show the astonishing versatility of his writing, and his remarkable access to the greats of the golfing world.

Among the gems in Phil Tresidder on Golf are a riveting description of playing the famous Augusta course with Gary Player the morning after he became the oldest person to win the US Masters; personal glimpses into the lives and games of the golfing legends of the past—Norman von Nida ('The Von'), Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Peter Thomson. As well as Tiger Woods, Ian Woosnam, Brett Ogle and a host of other present day golfers and would-be golfers.

Memorable golf courses—from Australia to Austria, Augusta to the Melbourne sandbelt—sportsmen, showbiz eccentrics, caddies and committeemen; all come under Tresidder's shrewd but always affectionate gaze.
