Classic Golf : The Photographs of Walter Looss Jr.

ISBN: 9780810949836

In the 1960s, when golf was beginning to attract a worldwide television audience, and its champions were becoming figures followed by national magazines, Walter Iooss was among the first photographers to capture the anticipation and tension, the focus and concentration, the heartbreak and victory of the world of golf. From Arnold Palmer in his prime during the 1960s, to Jack Nicklaus, who stepped up to challenge Palmer and then dominated the sport through the early 1980s, to Tiger Woods, who exploded every record set by his predecessors, Iooss covered golf during its most exciting era. In nearly 200 black-and-white and color photographs, he reveals the intensity and austerity of Ben Hogan, the charisma and humor of Lee Trevino, the swagger of Chi Chi Rodriguez, and the compact style of Gary Player. Iooss was also one of the few photographers to turn his lens on the crowd, showing us the rapt attention of golf fans. Best-selling author and award-winning Sports Illustrated writer Rick Reilly contributes an introduction to this classic gift book that truly captures the spirit and style of championship golf.
