London: Little Brown 2002. 8vo, 472pp. illustrated throughout. Original cloth, dust-jacket, virtually as new. First (British) edition of one of the best accounts ever written of a great golf match. The contest between Ouimet, an amateur, and Vardon who at the time was the dominant professional in the game, was a classic which Frost captures so well you feel like you are walking the course with them. Throw in Eddie Lowery, then a little boy who fought to be Ouimet’s caddy and went on to be a famous and wealthy San Franciscan (Item Id: 102992)
