Synopsis by Nathan Southern

Golf: The Game that Defined a Century embodies a fascinating documentary chronicling the history of one of America's most popular sports. Narrated by acclaimed sports writer Charlie Jones, this program travels back to the dawn of the Twentieth century, a point in time where many regarded golf as an elitist sport for a wealthy few, and played the game with crude hickory sticks; the program then travels ahead over the decades to witness the popularization of golf, and finally studies modernizing trends that impact golfing in the Twenty-first century, such as computer-generated clubs digitally rendered to improve performance on the green.
