On the cover: Payne Stewart, ignoring the roar at Pebble Beach, California, in 1991. Payne is watching over an issue full of style, substance, and soul that runs from Tom Coyne’s “Sacred Sand” to Caleb Hannan’s exploration of the outer limits of “pure golf” at the Bally Bandon Sheep Ranch. Excursions to an unlikely golf Mecca in Tennessee, a family-run hickory factory in Louisville, Kentucky, Gary Player’s stud ranch in South Africa, and a course called Rye for the annual Oxford vs. Cambridge old boys tournament make this a truly global affair. Representations of the game throughout range from Ballesteros, S. to Skywalker, L., and from oil on canvas to beyond the visible spectrum.
