Fore! The perfect holiday gift for dads!
Lee Trevino confessed his one superstition: never to use a yellow tee. Earl Woods (Tiger’s late father) tenderly recalled his son’s childhood struggles with stuttering and “sand twaps.” Hall of Famer–turned–TV commentator Judy Rankin could never, ever forget a spectacular shot she saw Greg Norman make on the 16th hole at the ’89 British Open. And Bobby Jones hated the nickname Bobby. (He much preferred being called Bob.)
For years, Golf Digest’s monthly “My Shot” column has informed, entertained, and emotionally touched the magazine’s readers with its first-person accounts of golfers’ lives and careers. Now, the best of those columns have been gathered together in a book that is this year’s must-give gift for any golf enthusiast.
In its pages, golfing greats of past and present—the amateurs and the pros, the men and the women, the indisputable legends and the merely very famous—talk about themselves in a remarkably candid way. They crack jokes, gossip, reveal their quirks and foibles, and, along the way, dispense a winner’s share of wisdom about the game called golf and that other game—the one called life. Striking photographic portraits illustrate each story in this revealing, often riveting collection of reminiscences.
