"During the 20th Century, golf evolved into something much bigger and more significant than a game played by a priviledged few. Country clubs, public courses, and golf's governing bodies were battlegrounds in the struggles for gender and racial equality that transformed society. The evolution of golf equipment - from hand-made hickory sticks and gutta percha balls to their mass produced, computer-designed descendants made from space age materials - mirrored the technological advances that have streamlined, yet often complicated, our day to day lives. The impact of golf on television, the medium that changed the way we perceive our world, was estraordinary. Watch and enjoy while GOLFWEEK, Golf's News Leader, presents the DVD version of its Retrospective Collectors Edition of 'The Game That Defined A Century.' Narrated by Charlie Jones, this DVD visits the people, places and events that helped shape the game of golf since 1900. This DVD retrospective is the definitive historical companion for all who enjoy the game."
