Foreword by Peter Thomson.

RRP  $35.00

Bill Edgar was called Australia’s Bobby Jones in the 1930’s. He had the smoothest swing that never changed, so much so that he played off scratch or better for 39 consecutive years.

Bill won three Victorian and two South Australian Amateur titles between 1927 and 1951. On three occasions he was narrowly beaten in the final of the Australian Amateur.

In 1964 Bill accepted the invitation to go to England to teach up and coming young professionals at what became known as the Butten School. One of his first pupils was Tommy Horton.

The book features many rare photographs including exhibitions Bill played with Walter Hagen, Gene Sarazen, Joe Kirkwood and Harry Williams.

This hardback is a rare book and is now only available from David Worley with a limited number of copies available. This will not be reprinted.
