About the Author

The Bump & Run golf book is an anticipated production from award winning author Andrew Crockett. Crockett spent 7 years compiling two coffee table books on surfing culture titled; Switch-Foot (2005) and Switch-Foot II (2009). Andrew Crockett plays off a 3 handicap and has a keen interest in golf history. The ethos of Bump & Run is very much like his surfing publications, to give respect to the elders who pioneered the game and to not lose sight of the traditions that bind the culture together. Through two years working full time on the Bump & Run golf book Crockett has been fortunate enough to interview many of the all time great golfers including World Golf Hall of Fame members; Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Peter Thomson, Tom Watson, Sir Bob Charles and Kel Nagle. Focusing on the 'Golden era' of Australian golf Crockett has sought the knowledge of the elders with further contributons from; Norman Von Nida, Bruce Crampton, Graham Marsh, Bill Dunk, Frank Phillips, Jan Stephenson, David Graham, Bob Shearer, Peter Toogood, Ian Stanley, Bruce Devlin, Jack Newton and golf historian Tom Moore. Beyond the interviews with golfs elders, Crockett has compiled 11 chapters in a 246 page coffee table book with over 200 unique vintage images, dozens of watercolour paintings, oil paintings and hand drawn illustrations from five artists including watercolour specialist Robert A Wade.

Reviews

"We have much to thank them for. Let's celebrate them together, remember their faces and enjoy their words. This is their story." - Adam Scott (2013 US Masters Champion) "Golf history is a fascination all on its own and Australia has a particularly interesting one. Where would we have been now, had it not been for our glory makers." - Peter Thomson (1954, 1955, 1956, 1958 & 1965 British Open Champion)
