Details

Dragons and Fairways is a timely reminder of the glories of Welsh golf past and present, and a celebration of its characters and achievements, its drama and its dreams. It takes us from the plus-fours and bar-room bets of Henry Howell to Dai Rees and Dave Thomas's agonizing near-misses at the British Open. It takes us on a journey from the wonderfully windswept Welsh fairways to the sunlit greens of Augusta and Ian Woosnam's historic US Masters win there in 1991. There is room here too for those women golfers who have raised the profile of their sport, as there is for those who, like Rhys Davies, represent the future of golf in Wales. And, as befits the biennial tournament that keeps the world on the edge of its seat, the Ryder Cup is a recurring - and heart-stopping - theme
