"The first task is to assimilate the putt into the family of golf, affording it equal status to all the other shots, believing in it with the same faith that we afford to the mighty drive and the trusty iron. Once a golfer has welcomed his putter in out of the cold, he is well on the way to exorcising his fears of the black art." "First Edition" on copyright page.
Mere trace of foxing to preliminaries. A fine signed copy.
