Armed with a veritable who's who of top golf journalists, Golf's Greatest delves through the past 80 years of golfing history to tackle the most debated question in the game: Who really are the greatest golfers of all time? If you put the all-time champions on an equal playing field today, who would reign victorious? How much would yesterday's stars earn in today's dollars?

In this fascinating read, eighteen of the world's most acclaimed golf writers take on golf's most intriguing discussion, each writing about a specific player.
