Pressestimmen

Among the countless graces bestowed on the game of golf, none surpass its fostering by the Morrises during the years of its modern birth at St. Andrews. Old Tom and Young Tom will always be intimately and wondrously present at the Course. Tommy’s Honor brings them closer than ever before, with the joy, the heartache, the tears, and the pride we feel for them. (Michael Murphy, author of Golf in the Kingdom)

The true and heartbreaking story of Old and Young Tom Morris has been a tale cloaked in too much mysticism and romance—until now. Tommy’s Honor puts real flesh on the bones of two fascinating men whose triumphs and tragedies helped shape the game we know and love today. It’s a fine and elegiac story you won’t soon forget. (JamesDodson, author of Final Rounds)

A stirring tale of tragedy, triumph, faith and perseverance. Kevin Cook reveals Old Tom Morris as golf’s first hero, a paragon who worked to make St. Andrews the symbol of the game’s enduring greatness. Every golfer should read Tommy’s Honor. (Ben Crenshaw, Two-Time Masters Winner)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Essential Golf History, Beautifully Told! 10. März 2017
Von David Hall - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Although I've played golf for over 50 years, and am familiar with 20th century golf history, I have just started playing "Hickory Golf", using 100 year old hickory shaft clubs, and reproduction golf balls of the 1920s era. We even dress the part, wearing knickers or plus fours, dress shirts, a tie, tweed jacket and cap...Well, you get the idea. This new-found interest led me to the story of modern golf's origins in Scotland, beautifully (and poignantly) detailed in "Tommy's Honor". Author Kevin Cook brought 19th Century Scotland alive with his in-depth research and skill portraying the Morris Family of St. Andrews. It's tough to describe a golf match and keep it interesting; Mr. Cook accomplishes this feat 20 times over!

Everything pertinent to golf's formative years is included in "Tommy's Honor": Culture and Class Lines; development of balls and clubs; how world-renowned courses evolved from pastures and pathways to the stunning fairways and greens we're familiar with. Best of all, Old Tom Morris and his oldest son, Tom Morris, Junior are presented not as icons, but as real people, albeit superbly talented and visionary ones!

My fellow Hickory Golfers and I are really looking forward to the film adaptation of "Tommy's Honor", which will be released next month (April, 2017). If it's half as compelling as this book, it will be a hit!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Tommy and Old Tom came alive during the 2015 Open Chamionship 24. Juli 2015
Von JAKtravels - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Reading Tommy's Honor while watching the 2015 Open in St. Andrews, Scotland, made each experience extra special. Viewing the layout of the course in 2015 built from the mind and back braking work of Tom Morris and his helpers 150 years ago was an exciting leap in the history of the sport of golf. I hope each of the players had the opportunity to read this book before they hit their first tee shot. Kevin Cook has done a great job of weaving the stats from many tournaments, the history of the R & A, and the culture of the time into the personal story of Old Tom and Tommy, the champion golfer. Learning the Scottish origin of many current golfing terms added to the understanding of the golfing lexicon. Sharing the passion for the game that Tom and Tommy had will keep it alive and well for many years to come, not only for the players but for the "fanatics" as well.
I'm not a player, but reading Tommy's Honor has made me a better viewer and fan.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Meh 6. Mai 2017
Von Steve - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I have had a difficult time maintaining interest in this book. I thought it would be a novel, but it's written like a narrative history of golf in Scotland. Some interesting details, but no depth of characters. It tells the facts, just not much color. It's been on my table for a month, and I'm not halfway through. I like golf and history, but -- blegh...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Borderline Biographical 30. November 2015
Von Steven M. Anthony - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I am an avid golfer, an amateur historian and a frequent traveler (usually in conjunction with golf), having been to England, Scotland and Ireland on several occasions. That being the case, you would think this would be right up my alley. And while I can’t say that I disliked it, it was very simple and didn’t actually tell me a lot that I didn’t already know (though I’ve never studied the Morris family).

The book tells the story of Old Tom Morris and his son, Young Tom, golfing royalty in the mid-late 19th century. It is largely biographical, but takes enough liberties with undocumented dialogue and personal feelings to almost qualify as historical fiction. There is not enough scholarly background work to produce what could have been a highly educational and informative text, but instead just enough facts against a historical backdrop to produce a very light, entertaining, easy to read, feel good text.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Great Golf History Book 23. Januar 2017
Von Stingray55 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
If you're a weekend duffer like myself you'll enjoy this book. Heard about the movie while watching the golf channel and one of the announcers said the book was good. He was right. Tommy's Honor provides a great history of the game and course design beginning in Scotland. It particularly details the creation and expansion of the great St. Andrews course as well as other courses in Scotland and England. In fact many course designers today are still mimicking many of the aspects built into the St. Andrews course. Particularly the links style courses. However the book is much more than that. It is a story of father's love, family, commitment and hardship.
I don't think my golf game will improve having read this book but can I show my golfing buddies about how smart I am about golf history while we're discussing our round on the 19th hole. In fact this book was so interesting that I already downloaded and started reading another book about the history of golf.
