But his conventional upbringing didnt prevent him from choosing a different path, abandoning the relative security of the legal profession to follow his first and only passion--the game of golf. While Darwin was no slouch on the links--he was captain of his golf team at Cambridge and twice reached the semifinals of the British Amateur Championships--he achieved far greater notoriety with his pen than with his club.Starting as a weekly columnist for The Times, he was soon acknowledged as one of the finest essayists in Britain, and was the first writer ever to elevate the discussion of golf beyond a simple reportage of events.He was a regular contributor to The Times of London (always signing his columns Our Golf Correspondent) and Country Life for almost fifty years.

This collection gathers the finest of Darwins writing, and is a celebration of a life devoted to a love of the game of golf.
