The Eternal Summer: Palmer, Nicklaus, and Hogan in 1960, Golf's Golden Year

Was there ever a year in golf like 1960?
        It was the year that the sport and its vivid personalities exploded on the consciousness of the nation, when the past, present, and future of the sport collided. Here was Arnold Palmer, the workingman’s hero, “sweating, chain-smoking, shirt-tail flying”; Ben Hogan, the greatest player of the fifties, a perfectionist battling twin demons of age and nerves; and, making his big-time debut, a crew-cut college kid who seemed to have the maki

    My son is 16 years old is an avid golfer and despises reading and sitting still. He has a little trouble with a reading handicap, but eventually gets through reading materials for our homeschooling. I had no idea how he would respond to this book but decided to give it a shot. He was fascinated by the historical notes that set the stage for the book and discussed several points with me. Then he got into the chapters. To my amazement, every single day he came to me with another exciting tidbit. I have even caught him curled up on the couch with a blanket and this book. The first time it happened I mistakenly thought he was my other son, a bookworm, but got a good laugh when I realized it was my son who swore he would never like a book! So while he’s getting his school reading done, he’s also learning about the ups and downs of some of the golfing greats in their historical context.
