A book as iconic as its subject – capturing and celebrating 150 years of golfing history and stories.

Iain Carter:

Iain Carter became the BBC’s golf correspondent in 2003 and has led Radio 5 Live’s commentary team ever since. He appears on BBC television and the World Service, and writes on golf regularly for the BBC Sport website. He has covered five Olympic Games, and he was formerly the BBC’s tennis correspondent. He is a lifelong recreational golfer who desperately clings to a single-figure handicap; Iain has reported on The Open for three decades and regards it as his favourite sporting event.


As custodians of golf, The R&A makes a substantial contribution to the sport through jointly overseeing the Rules codes, building on the success of The Open, the AIG Women’s Open and its other prestigious championships, and reinvesting in developing golf around the world to ensure it has a sustainable, inclusive and prosperous long-term future.
