Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Advice on golf and life from one of the great golfers of the modern age.

If there were a Mount Rushmore of golf, Gary Player's face would be on it. Winner of more than 160 professional tournaments, Player—along with Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer—is one of "The Big Three" who dominated professional golf in the 1960s and 1970s. But Player's influence goes far beyond the golf course. A businessman, a philanthropist, a family man, and an international ambassador of sport, he is respected around the world. In The Golfer's Guide to the Meaning of Life, Player reflects on the most important life lessons golf has taught him. Written for non-golfers, new golfers, and experienced golfers alike, this is not a book about hitting a ball into a cup, but about what a funny old game can teach you about living life with strength, purpose, and joy.
