Description
He was a 1930s golf legend and Hollywood trickster who adamantly refused to be photographed. He never played professionally, yet sports-writing legend Grantland Rice still called him 'the greatest golfer in the world'. Then, in 1937, the secrets of John Montague's past were exposed, leading to a sensational trial that captivated the nation. When a Time magazine photographer snapped his picture with a telephoto lens, police in upstate New York recognized Montague as a fugitive wanted for robbery.
