American golf has borrowed a great deal from the British—including the game itself—so no one should be surprised to hear about another piece of golf history we’ve copied.
‘Faces of Golf’ is a collection of bronze portraits of 116 leading golfers, course designers, and journalists, originally debuted during the Open Championship at St. Andrews last year, that has been reproduced and put on display at PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. The notables who’ve had their faces captured by British-American sculptor Lawrence Holofcener run the gamut from Mary, Queen of Scots, to Tiger Woods: In between are Old and Young Tom Morris, Harry Vardon, Jack Nicklaus, Annika Sorenstam, Arnold Palmer, Rory McIlroy, Walter Hagen, and dozen and dozens of others. The entire sculpture now hangs in the hallway that leads to the resort’s pro shop and out to its five golf courses.
