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

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.

About the Author:

Ron Cherney is a two-time club champion at El Caballero Country Club in Tarzana, California. He lives in Encino with his wife, Lisa, and their children, Benji, Carrie, Eric, and Megan.



Michael Arkush is an award-winning sportswriter and has written thirteen books, including The Last Season with Phil Jackson, The Big Fight with Sugar Ray Leonard, "Rush!" the bestselling unauthorized biography of Rush Limbaugh, and Fairways and Dreams. Arkush lives in Oak View, California, with his wife, Pauletta.

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 hastily scrawled and offer little in the way of engaging description. Of the 82 letters the authors received, at least half are from retired or lesser-known players, which makes for a colorful and egalitarian selection of participants representing different eras and levels of professional golf, including several legends of the game (e.g., Snead, Palmer, Nicklaus and Louise Suggs, one of the original founders of the LPGA), current stars of the PGA and LPGA tours, some unfamiliar yet distinctive players (such as Robert Landers, a Texas farmer who qualified for the Champions Tour at the age of 50) and a few notable personalities.
