Price, Charles
A Golf Story: Bobby Jones, Augusta National, and the Masters Tournament.
New York: Atheneum, 1987. First edition, early printing of the finest book written on the founding of Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Tournament. Quarto, original cloth, illustrated. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper. Fine in a very good dust jacket. Uncommon signed and inscribed. Soon after its original publication in 1986, A Golf Story was heralded as one of the classics of golf literature. It is a book that intertwines three immortal subjects--Bobby Jones, Augusta National, and the Masters Tournament--into one compelling narrative. These three stories are inextricably linked; together, they form a fascinating backdrop to an April drama that is unique in the annals of golf and that, like Jones himself, transcends sports. Using firsthand experiences with Augusta National and the Masters Tournament that date back to 1948, Charles Price spent three years weaving together this historic story and, in an unprecedented move, Augusta National opened its guarded archives for his research, thereby making this book the first authorized history of both the club and the tournament.
