Willie Park was the epitome of the Victorian entrepreneur. Besides being the champion golfer of his time, he took the game of golf to the world in a number of ways. He participated in challenge matches and demonstrations in Britain, Western Europe and North America, and designed, made and sold both clubs and balls in the main cities of Britain and North America. By laying out over 160 golf courses, Willie Park Junior made the game popular in Britain, Western Europe and North America. Always on the move, he wore himself out by continually making his presence felt in two continents and died in 1925 at the age of 61.
In these few pages is, after all, the wisdom of a lifetime, the wisdom of the best putter of his time. - PAUL LAWRIE This illustrated 'how to' book kept ME from quitting the game in disgust due to my inability to reliably sink short putts. After trying Willie's open-stance method I improved greatly. - BOB WEISBERGER, Great Golf Heritage
