Following Through: Writings on Golf

'“It is his susceptibility to the exhilaration golf can generate that makes Mr. Wind so valuable as a chronicler of the sport. His shot-by-shot recreations of great matches put readers right in the galleries, and this holds even for his accounts of long-ago matches he could not have attended. All the great golfers, from Harry Vardon to Jack Nicklaus, and all the great courses, from St. Andrews in Scotland to Augusta National in Georgia, appear in these graceful pages.” —The New York Times Book Review   “Golf has attracted many fine writers, but none extols the game with more authority and affection than Herb Wind, or more successfully conveys its gracious, fickle, generous spirit to the printed page.” —John Updike   “No American has written more knowledgeably, perceptively and interestingly about golf than Herbert Warren Wind. I was proud to have him as a collaborator on my first book, and I am sure the reissuing of Following Through will bring enormous enjoyment to a great many golfers.” —Jack Nicklaus   “When you read this wonderful collection of essays, you know why Herb Wind is so highly regarded among the literary masters of golf.” —Arnold Palmer   “Herbert Warren Wind has always been our foremost American golf writer. For those continuing their search in their study of golf, Following Through is a must, as it contains some of his finest essays.” —Ben Crenshaw   “Wind is a sportswriter who describes the game of golf with the same precision and sensitivity that Roger Angell brings to his books on baseball. . . . He is always articulate and not afraid to pursue his subject in meticulous detail.” —Library Journal   “A thoroughly agreeable round for links enthusiasts . . . Vivid . . . Wind’s elegant style as well as knowledgeable, involved reportage will engage most discriminating golfers and galleryites alike.” —Kirkus Reviews  '
