The Lost Golfer
London: John Murray, 1930. 335p. Green cloth.
Rare golf detective novel by "one of the foundation writers of golf literature...Of his nearly twenty mysteries, the author wrote only one known to contain anything regarding golf" -Taylor. Murdoch writes "Mr. Hutchinson deserves more than just a few words for himself because he was a very important contributor to golfing history, in addition to its literature." Bernard Darwin once penned "Horace was so noteworthy of a figure as a pioneer of golf that people are apt to forget his achievements as a player. Gift with a style dashing and flamboyant rather than orthodox, which he innocently preached in his books...he was the master of every kind of difficult shot...he was one of the great golfers. Very good boards and contents, spine faded and worn. Item #10352
