Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

My Greatest Day in Golf is an oral history where 25 of the top golfers from the last half-century talk about their most rewarding moments in golf. Chronologically, the book starts off with Tommy Bolt, who out-dueled Gary Player to win the 1958 US Open, and ends with a stirring account of the last year's historic Ryder Cup from Hal Sutton. The highlights include the greatest days of Nicklaus, Palmer, Player, and in addition to the Big Three, the book also includes first-person accounts from great golfers such as Ray Floyd, Hal Irwin, Nick Price, and Tom Lehman, as well as groundbreaking moments from pioneers like Lee Elder and Calvin Peete. Elder recounts first victory as it allowed him to be the first person of color to play in the Masters. Virtually every player in the collection has won at least one major, and most either were or are stars on the PGA tour. To round out the collection, the greatest days of colorful characters like Chi Chi Rodriguez and Jerry Pate add humor and warmth to this memorable book.

My Greatest Day in Golfends up being not only a fantastic collection of stories but also a history of golf. With its insider's look into the world of golf, this book is a must-have for all golf fans.
