This book cannot be returned.
Known as the 'Patron Saint of Club Golfers' throughout the world, Dr Frank Barney Gorton Stableford is recognised as one of the most prominent figures in the history of golf.
Like the good doctor he was, Stableford introduced and developed a scoring system which greatly reduced the pain of bad play and increased the enjoyment of the game for golfers of all standards.
Beyond golf, his achievements as a man of ideals and many talents provide us with shining examples of how to contribute to the world in which we live and make a difference through personal commitment.
This fascinating book traces his family background from its industrial beginnings through the decades of tumultuous and peaceful times and his life in golf, medicine and war.
