Product Description

Product Description

The perfect gift for the golf fanatic in everyone's life, this 100-minute volume traces the heritage, courses and players of the greatest game. Featuring the world's best players, including Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan and Arnold Palmer.

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

HASH(0xa411c9d8) out of 5 stars Great Watch for Golf Fans Dec 5 2008
By Tinou Bao - Published on
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.

Very good summary of golf history narrated by one of the best golf personalities of all times. Good mix of well known golfers and some that not many people know at all.

I got this video for my Dad, and he sure loved it. He passed it on to my brother, and my brother to my sister. It seemed to be quite the hole in one.

Was a gift for my "golf nut" dad. He loves it. If you have a "golf nut" history buff in your life..... consider this.

We have taken up golf again after some years of absence. We watched this last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Some interesting history. I looked up Arnold Palmer, as we were wondering how old he is now, and discovered his 86th birthday had just been the day before! Fond memories of my dad watching him on TV in the 60's, and I was a little girl paying attention to what Daddy liked. We didn't know a lot of things about some of these great golf pros and certainly not this much about the history of golf. Very nice Friday evening entertainment.
We topped it off with the movie Pat and Mike with Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy (she's a lady golfer and its filmed at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif which was built in the 20's and has some great history)
