41o0dumiodlThis is the story of golf as it’s never been told before: Mary Queen of Scots cheers herself up at the links at Leith following the murder of her husband Lord Darnley; Dwight D. Eisenhower’s valet shoots the breeze as he clears up the Oval Office following a particularly grueling Presidential putting practice session; and Bob Hope’s chauffeur experiments with some one-liners while waiting for his boss in the clubhouse car park.
