Global Edition

Record book updated

8.45am 21st February 2002 - Media

According to Jack Nicklaus ‘The Golf Majors – Records and Yearbook 2002’ stands alone as the “comprehensive account of’…the most significant championships of the world”.

The Golf Majors is based on comprehensive records from the British and US Opens, the US PGA and the Masters. This new edition includes full details of the 2001 Majors.

The 2002 edition is by Alun Evans, author of the two previous editions as well as a variety of other publications. He is passionate about golf, history and statistics and combines all three in this work. New features include a summary of winners for each tournament, year by year; back-to-back Major winners; play-off details; and the Championship courses used. Updated performance charts for players put today’s golfing phenomenon, Tiger Woods, into true historical context, as does the ‘Hall of Fame – Top 100’ for 2002.

Other features include a brief narrative that places each year’s statistics in perspective and the unique alphabetical listing of some 2000 top players’ Major Championship results. The publishers, A & C Black, hope that the comprehensiveness, ease of use and topicality of this unique book will make it invaluable to everyone interested in the game – from fans and spectators to amateurs, journalists and professionals.
