Golf writer to visit Fairfield bookstore
Published 5:22 pm, Thursday, July 31, 2014
Golf writer Bill Fields will sign copies of his new book, "Arnie, Seve, and a Fleck of Golf History," on Saturday, Aug. 2, from noon to 3 p.m. at the downtown Fairfield University Bookstore, 1499 Post Road. The book is filled with the author's observations about golf greats ranging from Johnny McDermott, the first American-born U.S. Open champion, to Seve Ballesteros, the Spaniard who led Europe's resurgence in the game in the late 20th century.
The collected pieces offer a portrait of golf over the past century and profiles of well-known golfers, including Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, Mickey Wright and Tiger Woods, as well as lesser-known golfers like John Schlee, Billy Joe Patton and Bert Yancey.
Fields, a senior editor at Golf World magazine, is a four-time winner of the Golf Writers Association of America annual writing contest. His work has also appeared in Golf Digest, the New York Times and the Best American Sports Writing.
