Product Overview

Based on the common aphorism that golf is a microcosm of life, this is a collection of 50 valuable lessons that great golfers have learned from the game, including perseverance, courage, perspective, patience, and self-belief. Presenting morals that apply to all people?golfers and nongolfers alike?in their daily lives, this compilation draws from legends of the sport and their noteworthy matches such as Arnold Palmer at the 1960 U.S. Open, Ben Hogan at the 1953 British Open, Jack Nicklaus at the 1986 U.S. Masters, and Seve Ballesteros at the 1993 European Masters. From dealing with triumph and disaster to the importance of honesty and adequate preparation, this guide is an excellent source of wisdom and philosophy based on the world?s most cerebral ball game.
