Author Jim Dodson To Speak On His Latest Book At Pawleys Plantation

Award-winning golf author Jim Dodson, who has written numerous books and won many writing awards in his career, will speak about his latest work, American Triumvirate: Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson, Sam Snead and the Modern Age of Golf, at a luncheon at 11 a.m. July 6 at Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club.

Tickets to the luncheon are $25 each and can be purchased by calling (843) 235-9000.

Dodson will lead a discussion about the book and its subjects and also dedicate time for a book-signing session. Books will be available for sale at both Pawleys Plantation and nearby Litchfield Books at 10 percent off the retail price of $28.95.

Coincidentally, Hogan, Nelson and Snead were all born in 1912, and over a five-year period at the height of their careers they won 65 percent of the tournaments played.

"This was an exciting project and one that captured my heart from start to finish," said Dodson. "These three golfers blazed the trail in so many ways so that we all can enjoy the wonderful game we have today. They changed the way golf was perceived in this country and around the world forever."

American Triumvirate offers a look at personal and professional lives of these three iconic figures as well as the role they played in setting the stage for the game's greats to come. Dodson is also the author of authorized biographies on Hogan and Arnold Palmer.
