Although it was written in the early part of the twentieth century by O.B. Keeler, the Autobiography of an Average Golfer is still incredibly relevant even today. Keeler, an Atlanta sportswriter, gained fame of his own by covering Bobby Jones in all his important tournaments. Jones considered Keeler to be ‘the greatest sportswriter who ever lived.’ He tells of his learning golf in 1897 and life in America before World War I.
You will quickly see why Jones held him in such high regard and be fascinated to learn about the game of golf during World War I.
