“EFFORTLESSLY, IMPECCABLY, HE STARTED THE MIGHTY CLUBHEAD BACK”
PRESSFIELD, Steven. The Legend of Bagger Vance. New York: William Morrow, (1995). Octavo, original half blue cloth, original dust jacket.
First edition of Pressfield’s popular tale of mysticism on the fairway.
Based on the famous 1931 exhibition match between Robert Tyre “Bobby” Jones, Jr. and Walter Hagen, Pressfield’s beloved tale applies the spiritual teachings of the Bhagavad-Gita to golf. “Pressfield’s portrait of a Savannah seaside resort in 1931 is as bright as the life he brings” to his characters (New York Times).
