Old Tom Morris grew up a stone's throw away from golf's ancestral home at St. Andrews. After winning the Open Championship three times he became head of the Royal & Ancient, the governing body of golf. His son, Young Tom, was a golfing genius who at 17 became the youngest player?to this day?to win the Open Championship. Young Tom won the Open four times in a row?an unprecedented achievement?and together father and son stood as both founding figures in the world of golf and national celebrities. The sudden and unexpected deaths of Young Tom's wife and unborn child, however, eventually lead to his tragic death at age 24, leaving Old Tom to mourn for another two decades. This is the inspiring and heart-wrenching story of the father-son team who together formed a record-breaking golfing dynasty.
Kevin Cook, formerly a staff member at Golf Magazine, has been a sportswriter for 25 years and has spent a lot of that time researching the life of Tom Morris, having heard about the legend while playing the Old Course on his first trip to St Andrews in the late eighties. He was amazed at how even hardcore golf fans knew next to nothing about Tom Morris, modern sport's first superstar. He professes a feeling for this story `in his bones', having been a golfer for 35 years and his late father a professional athlete and serious gambler. Winner of the 1998 Golf Writers' Association of America feature-writing award, he has also written for GQ, Playboy, Vogue, Golf Digest and Sports Ilustrated, and discusses the game as an analyst on ESPN.
