'Classic Shots' showcases 250 photographs of the sport from the 1920s to the present day, culled from the USGA's archive of more than half a million images. While some of these photos have appeared in print over the years, many have never been published before. Among the many highlights are a single image showing the great Bob Jones' swing sequence, Payne Stewart's 1999 U.S. Open-winning putt at Pinehurst Country Club, Arnold Palmer's 1960 win at Cherry Hill, dramatic shots of Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Michelle Wie, and other golf superstars. The photographs are organized into five geographic regions - Northeast, South, Mid-Continent, West, and International. Accompanying essays introduce each region, examining particular images and telling the stories behind them.
