Every sport has its definitive annual guide, the book that those who are passionate about the sport use for reference and information. For golf, The World of Professional Golf, sponsored by Rolex, is the bible, the volume that everyone with an interest in what happened on every Tour golf course around the world each year wants to have on their bookshelf, giving readers the chance not only to read up on every pro event but to access all the hard statistics.
The first section concentrates on rankings, prize money and Tour winners. This is followed by reports on the four men's and women's Majors, the men's Tour events across five continents, the Women's Tours, the Senior Tours and the money lists. The book concludes with extensive scoring summaries of every pro tournament played in the world in 2013, providing enough information to satisfy even the most ardent statistician's hunger for figures.
This magnificent volume contains an introduction by the legendary Arnold Palmer, a foreword by the first great golf agent and founder of IMG, Mark H. McCormack, whose brainchild this book was, plus approximately 90 photographs of the year in action. If it happened in professional golf in 2013, you will find everything you need to know in The World of Professional Golf 2014.
