This brings up a related question...were there ever any play-by-play
radio broadcasts of golf matches? To me, the sport doesn't seem to
lend itself to radio! I would imagine that the results of major
events were reported in sportscasts (to the extent that THEY existed
on radio)...

I suspect this might actually be a sociological question...golf has
always been identified with the "upper class," and today's increased
popularity of the sport may be a function of the larger number of
people who are (or who feel they are, or will become) part of that
elite group?
