Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter

This video is part one of a four-part series that traces the history of the game of golf. The film takes the viewer to the beautiful countryside of Scotland, where the game began over 800 years ago. From its humble beginnings in the cow pasture, golf evolved into a highly elaborate game with splendid golf courses to match its acquired status as a gentlemen's game. This episode looks at the history of the British Open and the emergence of American players into the first ranks of golfing champions.
