Hugh Dodd and Prof. David Purdie, foreword by Colin Montgomerie
Professor David Purdie’s career in academic medicine -and golf - has ideally fitted him to describe the physical, and, especially, the mental afflictions of the golfer. His work as a journalist and as a speechwriter for Sam Torrance and Colin Montgomerie has given him insights into the game at the highest level. He can now be revealed as author of The Major, the legendary column in Golf International featuring the obsessions and outbursts of Major RJM Warren-Dawlish the explosive (and fictional) Secretary of Royal St. Luke’s Golf Club, the oldest, and oddest, club in the world.
Hugh Dodd’s illustrations for each chapter comprise full-colour plates plus pen-and-ink vignettes. A contemporary Scottish artist and illustrator, his recent work has focused on the art of golf. He has exhibited widely since 1980 and his work can be found in numerous private and public collections throughout the world and appears in books, prints and cards. His work has also appeared in most leading UK newspapers and magazines including The Daily Telegraph, The Spectator, The Scotsman, The Herald, The Scottish Field and others.
