9780060562786: My Greatest Shot: The Top Players Share Their Defining Golf Moments

Arnold Palmer driving the 1st green in the final round of the 1960 U.S. Open.

Hale Irwin sinking a cross-country putt on the 72nd hole of the 1990 U.S. Open.

Tiger Woods hitting a 6-iron from the bunker to secure the 2000 Canadian Open.

All three, the experts say, belong among the game's greatest, most memorable shots. But what do the players who hit them think? Ron Cherney, a California dentist with a lifelong passion for the game, decided to find out.

For five years, Cherney and sportswriter Michael Arkush sent out letters to the best players in the world asking what they felt was the greatest shot they ever hit. Amazingly, the responses poured in. Players sent letters, e-mails, faxes, and, believe it or not, a Post-it -- describing what they were thinking and feeling when they pulled off the shot of their lives.

Some were clutch shots, executed before big crowds in big tournaments, others were hit far away from the spotlight, but provided the confidence the players needed to fulfill their dream of competing at the top level.

Cherney and Arkush have compiled 80 of these accounts complete with brief interviews with the players and highlights of their careers. In addition to Palmer, Irwin, and Woods revealing their greatest shot, the collection includes letters from Amy Alcott, Se Ri Pak, Tom Watson, Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia, and many other top players. My Greatest Shot is an irresistible gift for any golf fan.

Product Description:

A one–of–kind collection of letters from many of golf's past and present masters––from Jack Nicklaus to Tiger Woods––describing their most amazing shot and its impact on their career.

While listening to so–called golf–experts debate the greatest golf shots of all time, Ron Cherney, a golf memorabilia collector, was struck by an idea––what do the players themselves think? So for the next three years, he sent off letters to all the best players to find out. Amazingly, many players actually wrote back with stories about their most memorable shots.

Ron, with sports writer Michael Arkush, have melded the resulting letters into a captivating book that also includes a short background on each player and other interesting quotes and anecdotes from their careers. An irresistible gift for any golf fan, My Greatest Shot goes behind the scenes and into the minds of the sport's greatest players.
