Matt Cleary - A Short History of Golf

A Short History of Golf tells the magnificent, sometimes tragic, always inspiring stories of the greats of golf and how they lit up the world with their own brands of magic.

The history of golf and it’s many icons are retold, including Old Tom Morris, who won three of the first five Open Championships in the 1860s, and many other greats that have vied for that prize.

From Bobby Jones who created the famous Augusta course, to Sam Sneed winning three green jackets, and some of the other stars like Ben Hogan, Gene Sarazen, Gary Player, Arnold Palmer (The King), Jack Nicklaus, the magnificent Seve, the Great White Shark and Tiger— all the golfing legends are mentioned in this golf hack’s crack at history. Golf’s greatest women are also featured, including Karrie Webb, Jan Stephenson, Patty Berg, Annika Sorenstam and Mildred Ella Didrikson Zaharias, known as Babe after Babe Ruth because she was truly magnificent. Clayton caught up with the author Matt Clearly in today's Arvo Flow for more.

A Short History of Golf is one man’s take on the highs and lows of the great game of golf.
