Over the past 30 years, Phil Sheldon produced some of the most compelling photographs in sport. He photographed all the modern legends, including Jack Nicklaus, Seve Ballesteros, Bernhard Langer, Ernie Els and Tiger Woods. The book is divided into key themes that are explored through the photographs and the informative narrative. Themes include the major tournaments such as The Open, The Masters, and the Ryder Cup, as well as key players and the impact they have had on the game. There are also sections on the fashions and innovative golf courses from around the world.
