"Dream On" is the hilarious and inspiring story of how recreational golfer Richardson was determined to break par within a year at his local golf course--and how he achieved this seemingly impossible feat.
From the Publisher:
Meet John Richardson. A typical weekend golfer who enjoyed the game but couldn't break 100. Married. One seven-year-old daughter. Full-time job. But he differed from the average 24-handicapper in one crucial way: He was determined to break par within a year at the local golf course, while working a demanding full-time job and trying his best to remain a good husband and father.||Virtually everyone he came across told him that it wasn't possible. Famed Scottish golfer/commentator Sam Torrance advised John to "dream on," and PGA Tour pro Darren Clarke told him that three years would be a more realistic time frame. Add to the mix a range of golfing injuries, family responsibilities, and a rigorous work schedule, and you can understand why there were so many doubters.||Dream On is the hilarious and inspiring story of how John achieved the seemingly impossible--from how the initial challenge took shape and the methods he used to dramatically improve his game, to that glorious day, less than one year later, when he broke par and played the best round of his life.
Author Bio
John Richardson
John Richardson was born in 1924. He studied art at the Slade School but soon gave up painting for art criticism. In 1949 he moved to Provence, where he helped the collector Douglas Cooper transform the Ch?teau de Castille near Avignon into a private museum of cubist painting. For the next twelve years he lived in France where he became friends with Picasso, Braque, L?ger, and Cocteau. With Picasso's encouragement he embarked on an analytic study of the artist's portraits. In the early 1960s Richardson went to live in New York City where he was appointed head of
Christie's U.S. operation. Besides having organized various exhibitions, he has written books on Manet and Braque and is a contributor to "The New York Review of Books", "The New Yorker" and "Vanity Fair". The first volume of his "Life of Picasso" was published to wide acclaim in 1991 and won England's prestigious Whitbread Prize. In 1993 he was made a Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy. In 1994-95 he served as the Slade Professor of Art at Oxford University. Currently he divides his time between Connecticut and New York City.
