First Edition.Biography of Scotland's most famous golfer, and now a classic golf book. Old Tom Morris set the record for the largest margin of victory ever when he won the 1862 British Open by 13 strokes; his son, Young Tom Morris, won the 1870 British Open by 12 strokes, a margin not matched until April 13, 1997, when Tiger Woods won the Augusta Masters. Golf bibliophile Philip Truett notes: “Young Tom only played 36 holes for HIS record margin…"When 'Tiger' won the Open at St Andrews by a record margin it equaled Young Tom's record, but none of the papers pointed out that Young Tom had only needed half as many holes to achieve it!” -Murdoch 794
