The Match: The Day the Game of Golf Changed Forever

The year: 1956. Eddie Lowery, once caddie to Francis Ouimet, now a wealthy car dealer and avid supporter of amateur golf, boasts to fellow millionaire George Coleman that two of his salesmen – US amateur champion Harvie Ward and up-and-coming star Ken Venturi – could beat any golfers in the world in a best ball match. Coleman asks Lowery how he plans to prove it. ‘Bring any two golfers of your choice to the course tomorrow morning,’ Lowery tells him, ‘and we’ll settle the issue.’ Coleman shows up all right – with Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson, the game’s greatest living professionals.
In Mark Frost’s peerless hands, complete with the recollections of all the participants, the story of this foursome and the greatest private match ever played comes vividly to life.
