The world’s most comprehensive source of information in print on the Major championships of golf for over 20 years is available in paperback and now for the first time, Kindle ebook.
The history, present and future of The Open Championship, inaugurated way back in 1860, and the development over 120 years of the US Open (1895), The PGA Championship (1916) and the Masters Tournament (1934), is chronicled in detailed reports and backed up by the most comprehensive statistics available on Golf’s premier events.
Author Alun Evans, says, “So pleased to announce the launch of the above! What with all that’s going on in the world, for several weeks I thought the chance to present you with a 2020 edition would never happen. Then with the R&A announcement earlier in April, just a week or so the Masters was scheduled to take place, that there would be no Open for the first time in peacetime since 1871, I thought the already rocking universe would split asunder.
“But here we are at the end of the most depressing and turbulent month most of this generation of human beings have experienced, and, perhaps surprisingly, buoyed in the expectancy of the other three Majors determined to find room for their Championships sometime within the calendar year, I am delighted to say that The Golf Majors’ Book 2020 is now available; and, not just in paperback at £14.99 or the equivalent, but after a decade of trying, for the first time as an eBook, through Kindle, for around £6.50.
“At this point both versions are only available at Amazon, but as their international websites have developed all around the world, not just the US, UK and Canada, if you live elsewhere, I am sure you’ll find an Amazon website near you.
“I have written the 2020 update to the series in the same style as the others, i.e. as if the coronavirus had never happened. Just to put things into context, however, I have prefaced the book with a Stop Press/cum addenda. So I am thrilled once again to be able commend the book to you, and hope you feel able to recommend this edition to others who you think should be made aware of its existence; and thank you for your continued interest and support of The Golf Majors series.”
Evans, nominated for From Old Tom to the Tiger in the British Sports Book Awards of 2012, provides the only regularly and accurately updated resource needed to keep abreast of these historic events. In this, the 2020 edition, he welcomes the return of Tiger Woods to Majors-winning ways in celebrating his fifth Masters Green Jacket – but only his first Major – since 2008; and the continuing predator-like performances of Brooks Koepka who clinically collected his fourth Major title in three seasons, as well as Gary Woodland’s maiden victory in the US Open at Pebble Beach. He reports, too, on the much-anticipated revisit of the Open to Royal Portrush in almost 70 years, and in only the second visit to the island of Ireland to hail a home-grown Champion there in Shane Lowry.
The author also looks forward to the Majors of 2020, welcoming the return to Major Championships iconic courses like Winged Foot and Royal St George’s, before embellishing the past glories of these, statistically, the pinnacle of all golfing events, through records and tables and information of all sorts.
