In golf competition, foursomes are often played at a high level—an example is the Ryder Cup competition between American and British/European professionals. But foursomes can also be played at a different level of competition.
In this story set in the 1950s, a wealthy publisher in England sponsors a tournament in which teams composed of professionals and sportswriters compete on a links course that was once a vegetable farm. The publisher believes that pairing a sportswriter and professional as a team will improve the quality of the reporting about a tournament, which the sportswriter is covering.
There is a cash prize for the professional on the winning team, which encourages a golf professional to compete in a tournament he might otherwise avoid. An outstanding young lady amateur golfer also enters the tournament, playing as a professional in an era in which it was highly unusual for a woman to compete with the men.
The team of an American sportswriter and the young lady prove to be a formidable pair, and they advance to the finals. Find out who wins in Golf among the Vegetables and the Seven-Club Challenge.
