The Historical Dictionary of Golfing Terms: From 1500 to the Present

Synopsis

No game has a richer array of terms than golf. As new golfing terms have accumulated, old ones have changed or faded away. This concise yet informative dictionary provides definitions and the etymologies for the extraordinary vocabulary of golf, built up over its five-hundred-year history. To discover the origins of golf and its special language, Peter Davies combed little-known archives on two continents. As his unique contribution to the game, Davies's enthusiasm and enjoyment of golf are stamped on every page of this authoritative book.
