The story of American golf, its champions and its championships by Herbert Warren Wind( Book )

The classic history of golf in America from the sport's poet laureate Widely regarded as the definitive account of America's love affair with the world's greatest game, this magisterial volume is Herbert Warren Wind's masterpiece. From John Reid, the expatriate Scotsman who imported a set of clubs and balls from St. Andrews in 1888 and built a three-hole course on a cow pasture in Yonkers, New York, to Alan Shepard's six-iron shot on the surface of the moon, The Story of American Golf documents the iconic moments in the sport's first century in the United States. Wind captures legendary players, including C. B. Macdonald, Bobby Jones, Byron Nelson, Babe Didrikson Zaharias, Ben Hogan, and Jack Nicklaus, in all their glory, and expertly analyzes the developments in style, equipment, and technique that created the modern game. Encyclopedic in scope and intimate in detail, The Story of American Golf is both a fitting tribute to the beautiful and fickle game that inspired a national obsession and a testament to Herbert Warren Wind's incomparable talents as a journalist and historian

The definitive collection of a legendary sportswriter's reflections on his favorite game In this classic anthology, Herbert Warren Wind recreates Ben Hogan's stirring performance in the third round of the 1967 Masters, when the fifty-four-year-old former champion turned back the clock to birdie six of the final nine holes and send spectators home "as exhilarated as schoolboys." At the 1964 US Open, the dean of American golf writers captures the drama and excitement of "one of the most inspiring stories in American golf": Ken Venturi's heroic victory over Arnold Palmer, Tommy Jacobs, and a case of heat exhaustion to win his only major championship. From Harry Vardon to Steve Ballesteros, Pebble Beach to Ballybunion, the British Open to the President's Putter, this generous and entertaining volume contains Herbert Warren Wind's most famous essays on the sport he loved above all others. Vivid, eloquent, and insightful, Following Through showcases a master craftsman at the very top of his form

The gilded age of sport by Herbert Warren Wind( Book )

5 editions published between 1961 and 2016 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From gridiron to diamond, lawn to green, a legendary sportswriter captures the wins, losses, and draws of an exciting period in American sports history Throughout his long and distinguished career, Herbert Warren Wind covered many of the most dramatic contests and iconic athletes of the twentieth century. Inspired by Paul Gallico{u2019}s classic dispatches from the golden age of the 1920s and {u2019}30s, The Gilded Age of Sport collects Wind{u2019}s finest pieces on the people and places of the postwar era. With graceful prose and an authoritative eye for the telling detail, he profiles sports heroes including Yogi Berra, Ben Hogan, Maurice Richard, Bob Cousy, Sam Snead, Ted Williams, Herb Elliott, and Hazel Hotchkiss Wightman. Wind reveals Rocky Marciano{u2019}s training regimen, journeys as far afield as Japan and Australia to report on the international sports scene, and delights in the startling discrepancy between the woeful record of Harvard{u2019}s football team and the glory of its marching band. An elegant and comprehensive survey of fifteen thrilling years in sports history, The Gilded Age of Sport is a testament to the versatility, wit, and wisdom of a master craftsman
Game, set, and match : the tennis boom of the 1960's and 70's by Herbert Warren Wind( Book )

5 editions published between 1979 and 2016 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The leading players and outstanding matches of two thrilling decades in tennis history From Rod Laver's amateur Grand Slam in 1962 to the first US Open held at the National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, legendary sportswriter Herbert Warren Wind captures the grace and drama of modern tennis in this brilliant collection drawn from the pages of the New Yorker. The era's biggest names, including Margaret Court, Chris Evert, John Newcombe, Arthur Ashe, and Pancho Gonzales, thrill the crowds of Roland Garros, Wimbledon, and Forest Hills, and America's Davis Cup team battles patriotic linesmen and frenzied fans in an epic showdown against the Romanians in Bucharest. In "Mrs. King versus Mr. Riggs," Wind paints a witty and evocative portrait of Billy Jean King's historic beatdown of Bobby Riggs, and in "Forest Hills and the Final Between Connors and Borg," he vividly recounts one of the wildest and woolliest tournaments in the sport's history. Rendered with the same authority and eloquence that led the New York Times to declare Wind the dean of American golf writers, these dispatches from center court testify to the celebrated journalist's passion and versatility

Elegant and perceptive musings on the world's greatest game from the dean of American golf writers This illuminating collection features many of Hebert Warren Wind's most famous essays, including "Jones Breaks Through," his masterful portrait of Bobby Jones's first major championship, won in an epic eighteen-hole playoff against Bobby Cruickshank at the 1923 US Open, and "North to the Links of Dornoch," an evocative travelogue that established the venerable course in the Scottish Highlands as one of golf's premier destinations. Wind captures Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Byron Nelson, and Ken Venturi in their prime, and brings readers back to an earlier era when Harry Vardon ruled the links. He profiles golf's female pioneers-Mickey Wright, Babe Didrikson Zaharias, and Joyce Wethered-and sings the praises of Bernard Darwin, "the greatest writer on golf the world has ever known." In his Sports Illustrated deadline ode, "The 1958 Masters: Palmer at the Fateful Corner," Wind brings Arnold Palmer's first major championship to vivid life and coins Augusta National's most iconic and enduring term: "Amen Corner." Lyrical, evocative, and insightful, Herbert Warren Wind's Golf Book is a must-read for students of the game and fans of classic sports journalism
