Tiger Virtues: 18 Proven Strategies for Winning in Golf and in Life
Alex Tresniowski
0762423382
April 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
For Tresniowski, 29-year-old superathlete Tiger Woods embodies a set of virtues-18, to be exact-that have helped him win on the golf course and that can be applied to anyone's life, on and off the green. The People magazine sportswriter admits he has not spoken to Woods about these virtues and can't say Woods necessarily believes in them or endorses them. Yet that doesn't stop Tresniowski from offering a crash course in Buddhism lite, anchored by anecdotes from Woods's playing career. In falsely erudite prose, Tresniowski explains the virtues: wakefulness, humility, preparation, positive thinking, stillness, fearlessness, "happy warrior," intuition, diligence, integrity, no expectations, yielding spirit, sureness, vision, adaptability, patience, balance and exuberance. Although these virtues are certainly...


The Wicked Game: Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, and the Story of Modern Golf
Howard Sounes
006051387X
May 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Sounes approaches a journalistic exposé of the modern business of golf from a biographical perspective. Through riveting portraits of Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, the author of biographies on Charles Bukowski and Bob Dylan turns the spotlight on the game's evolution, from country club pastime to a multibillion-dollar business, with multimillionaire players holing out and cashing in. The "wicked" in this game is in its documented history of discrimination against minorities, women and the less-than-rich who can't afford the country club dues. (The "Caucasian clause" existed in the rules of the PGA of America from 1934 until 1961.) In modern parlance, it also refers to being wickedly difficult to play and wickedly fun. With the advent of charismatic players such as Palmer and Woods, and the...

My Greatest Shot: The Top Players Share Their Defining Golf Moments
Ron Cherney
0060562781
March 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
In 1999, Cherney, a practicing dentist and golf enthusiast, began writing to professional golfers to ask them about the most memorable shots of their careers; a few years later a chance encounter with Arkush, an accomplished sports writer, turned his small cache of response letters into a marketable book proposal. The resulting collection is an enjoyable assortment of golf memorabilia that encompasses the last half-century of the game. The authors, wanting to "preserve the true spirit of the project," decided to reproduce the actual letters they received and supplement them with thumbnail biographies and tidbits of wisdom and experience from the golfers themselves. While most of the players embraced the opportunity to recount the circumstances and emotions surrounding their best shots, several letters were...
