A fine autobiography by the dominant American female golfer of the first half of the 20th century, nicknamed the female Bobby Jones, as much for her composure and sportsmanship as for her astonishing achievements. Full of lively anecdotes and opinions, numerous photographs on 27 plates. With a foreword by Bobby Jones.

‘Glenna Collett Vare (1903-1989) won six U.S., two Canadian, and one French Women's Amateur Championships. In her day there was no professional women's tour. The LPGA’s Vare trophy, given to the player with the lowest scoring average, is awarded in her honour.’ -
World Golf Hall of Fame.

Glenna was the first woman to attack the hole rather than just to play to the green’ - Former USGA president Richard Tufts.
