"Extremely thoughtful, well-researched . . . now may the great debate begin. A win for the ages!"
--Jim Nantz, CBS Sports

Think you know the legends of the links?
Try playing a round with "Mr. Stats."

  • Has Tiger Woods already achieved enough to surpass Jack Nicklaus?
  • Where does Harry Vardon fit in among the all-time greats?
  • Is the legendary Bobby Jones actually the most overrated golf legend?
  • Was Mickey Wright the best female golfer of all time or would Annika Sorenstam wipe up the fairway with her?

The absolute authority in armchair athletes’ disputes, Elliott Kalb uses his well-formed opinions and uncanny sports knowledge to shake up the gentlemanly game of golf. Shooting the breeze with experts and players in a heated discussion of pressure-packed putts and nail-chomping championships, he gives you his ultimate ranking of the top 50 golfers of all time. Kalb crosses generational lines, explores technological improvements in equipment, and examines differing levels of competition to answer the most provocative question in golf: Who’s the best?
