Issued the same year as the first, however this edition with the photographs eliminated and the title changed from "Golf in America" to "Golf and Golfing." "Despite the impressive title, relatively few people yet played the game at this time, although it was rapidly growing in stature and popularity. The U.S.G.A. has been formed the year before and this year, 1895, was the first in which official championships were conducted" - Murdoch 440; D&M3360; D&J L7870.
