Product Description

Amazon.ca

In this video from the History Channel, the story of golf is told in exquisite detail, from its obscure beginnings as an afternoon diversion for a few Scottish shepherds to its current position as the beloved obsession of millions. Hosted by former professional golfer and longtime broadcaster Ken Venturi, this classy presentation is marked by insightful interviews with golf historians and legends such as Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. Earlier titans of the game, including the legendary amateur champion Bobby Jones, as well as pros Walter Hagen, Babe Didrikson Zaharias, Gene Sarazen, Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan, and Sam Snead are well represented in vintage film clips. Gorgeous photography enhances visits to golf landmarks such as St. Andrew's in Scotland and the Augusta National and Pinehurst courses in the United States. This production offers an abundance of detail, right down to historians of the game demonstrating the evolution of balls, tees, and clubs. The viewer will come away with a real understanding of how the game developed from a diversion played by eccentrics swinging clubs in cow pastures to its current status as one of the fastest-growing sports in the world. Golf: Links in Time is both intelligent and fun, and will add to anyone's understanding of the game. --Robert J. McNamara

History Channel report on this rising sport. Excellent documentary showing old photos and video from its beginnings in Scotland to Tiger Woods.
Ken Venturi adds nice touch with the commentary. Highlights changes in equipment, courses and popularity.
Links past with present in excellent manner. From Tom Morris to Harry Vardon to Walter Hagan to Bobby Jones to Nelson and Hogan and Snead to Palmer and Nicklaus and modern day players.
This is a qreat addition to the golf enthusiast to have in collection and take out often and watch again this fascinating, well-done quick "fly over" of the course of this game over last some 200 years.

After viewing " Golf Links in Time",a history of the game of golf, I can understand the fascination with playing the game. It's not only a personal challenge to do your best, but a visual sensation playing on the beautiful courses in many parts of the world. The simple explanations of "bogeys", "birdies" etc., dispell some of the difficulties one may think are associated with the game of golf. I can hardly wait to experience the fun of playing.

Great Watch for Golf Fans Dec 5 2008
By Tinou Bao - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
If you're a golf fan this is a great video to get a perspective and background on the history of golf, how it has evolved. Some great vintage photos and videos. It's from 1999, so you won't see all the hype about tiger woods and the more recent golf stuff, but for a newbie to golf or the serious golfer, it's a great watch.
