About the Author

Stephen Proctor is a prizewinning journalist and experienced editor of several large newspapers. He is an avid golfer and has spent the past decade studying the history of the royal and ancient game. Monarch of the Green is his first book. He lives in Malabar, Florida.


'Brings to sharp focus the impact this young golfing genius had on the formative years of the game. Proctor's clean and readable style, grounded in solid research ... puts into context what the prodigy accomplished. ...Proctor paints Young Tom in a fresh light, as the young man who revolutionized the way the game was played and whose brilliant star was so quickly extinguished in tragedy. If you would know Young Tom and his impact on golf [this] is the book you must read'

* The Golf (the Golf Heritage Society) *

'Very ably convinces us young Tom was a giant on the links, equally as talented as anyone that came after him-Ballesteros, Hagen, Jones, Nicklaus, Woods ... but he saves his best, most moving and poignant writing for Morris's tragic death, on Christmas Day 1875, at just 24 years old'

* Links Magazine *

'To write about Tommy Morris is a very brave thing to do. [Proctor] has been successful in bringing something new to the table. ... An informative, charming book'

* Through the Green *

'The short but very intense life of this star of golf is told with detail and passion in this compelling book'

* Il Mondo del Golf Today *

'Tells of the short but significant life of golfing legend young Tom Morris. Proctor sets his achievements within the context of the time. A useful book to newcomers to the game of golf, who want to understand its history and traditions'

* Scots Magazine, Book of the Month *

'A splendid new biography. How good was young Tom Morris? Stephen Proctor makes his case cogently. Young Tom Morris was one of the greatest of them all'
