Pub. Date:
In this work for general readers, Hudson (Middle Tennessee State University) examines the development of women's golf, the creation of the women's tour, star female golfers of the past, the astronomical rise of the present-day tour greats, and the future of the sport. In light of the fact that gender discrimination remains a reality in the world of golf, he also looks at the sport in the context of the country's history of discrimination against women. The author has written several other books on sports. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
