PGA of America Centennial: Celebrating the History of the Golf Professional Jack Nicklaus read online review & book description:
On January 17, 1916, a group of golf professionals and leading amateurs gathered for lunch in New York City at the invitation of department store magnate Rodman Wanamaker, who believed that golf professionals could grow the game and enhance their business if they formed an association. Four months later the Professional Golfers Association of America was founded with 35 charter members. One hundred years later, the PGA of America has grown to 28,000 members, each committed to teaching eager golfers--from first-timers to major champions -- and to both growing and also upholding the values, traditions, and ideals of the great game of golf. This exhaustively researched, superlative quality coffee table book chronicles the history from the very first golf professional in St. Andrews, Scotland through the present and celebrates a time-honored profession where the most important qualification is the love of the game.
