Klein On Mark Brown

Brad Klein remembers Mark Brown.

Brown was a pioneer golf writer who held consistently, even stubbornly, to his traditional conception of the game and of course architecture. In an era when most writers were writing uncritical, laudatory prose, Brown took a more didactic approach based upon his agenda to preserve and restore the game's classical values. His ability to adhere to these values while earning a living in the burgeoning golf market of the Hilton Head area was no simple balancing act.
