Father’s Day is just around the corner, and American Triumvirate is a great combo of history and sports for dads who love hitting the links on a lazy afternoon.
Veteran golf writer James Dodson shares the stories of Sam Snead, Byron Nelson and Ben Hogan. These three golf masters changed the face of modern golf during the mid-20th century, “when its growth was hampered by the Depression and World War II.” Explains our reviewer: “. . . their lively competitions [helped] to sustain the game’s popularity and eventually [spurred] a postwar period of prosperity in which tournaments became more plentiful and the purses much larger.”
