About the Author
Photographer - George Pietzcker was the premier golf photographer in the U.S. for the first half of the 20th century.

Pietzcker's work is highly sought after by golf and photography collectors worldwide.

Author - Rand Jerris, Director of the USGA Museum and Archives, holds a B.A. and M.A. from Williams College, and a Ph.D. in Art and Archaeology from Princeton University. Jerris is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the daily operation of the Museum and Archives, as well as the long-term development of its collections.

United States Golf Association (USGA) - The USGA has served as the national governing body of golf for the U.S., its territories and Mexico since its formation in 1894. It's a non-profit organization run by golfers for the benefit of golfers. The Association sponsors a variety of programs that benefit everyone who plays the game, from conducting 13 national championships each year, to writing and interpreting the Rules of Golf, to funding turf grass and course maintenance practices, to supporting grassroots programs through its "For the Good of the Game" initiative.
