The Blond Bomber Native Son of Lake Placid
By J. Peter Martin
Lake Placid is home to one of the world’s greatest golfers, Craig Wood, who was born in 1901. As a caddy Wood learned the game well enough to later win 21 major tournaments including the Masters and the U.S. Open while setting 21 course records along the way.
This book relays the stories from his early childhood in Lake Placid to his travels around the world playing golf and winning tournaments and bringing recognition, honor and international fame to Lake Placid.
