A Reissued & revamped sixth Edition – 1901

Hutchinson at his BEST

American golf teaching professional Mike Stevens said of Hutchinson,

“In my mind, there is no question that Horace Hutchinson was a teacher extraordinaire and is clearly the father of golf instruction”.

Walter Travis, in 1904—shortly after his victories in the 1903 U.S. Amateur and 1904 British Amateur—said of Hutchinson:

‘All things considered, the golfer whom I most admired as a player was Horace Hutchinson. Over here we have read so many of his books and spoken of him so long as a veteran that one is surprised to find he is only forty-seven years old. He plays every shot for what it is worth and in perfect style, as free as any supple youth, and, all told, I pronounce him, to my mind, the ideal golfer’.

Horatio Gordon “Horace” Hutchinson (16 May 1859 – 27 July 1932) was an English amateur golfer who played in the late 19th century and early 20th century. Hutchinson won the 1886 and 1887 Amateur Championships. He had three top-10 finishes in the Open Championship, his best result being sixth in the 1890 Open Championship.

He was also a prolific writer of books on the subject of golf and other sporting themes. Hutchinson was the second English captain of the St Andrews Golf Club, Scotland. He suffered from grave illness in the latter portion of his life and committed suicide in Chelsea, London, England, on 27 July 1932. ( Onesiphorus Tyndall Bruce was the first Englishman to Captain R&A in 1838).
