Hutchinson (1859–1932), dubbed The Father of Golf Instruction, was the first, the most famous, and easily the most prolific golf writer who ever lived. This particular book, Golf, published originally in 1901, provides the reader with an opportunity to enjoy the benefits of his wisdom on a variety of different topics relating to golf, from how to play the game to a brief history of how the game started, from the rules of the game and how they developed to proper etiquette. There is even a glossary of terms so the reader can—finally!—learn the difference between a baff and a baffy, a brassy and a mashie, a bulger and a bogey. An interesting bit of trivia: this book was originally published with a glaring error which improperly located a chunk of it in the wrong chapter and in the wrong order, so this might be the first time this book by Horace Hutchinson has ever been available as the author intended.
