9781840184976: Winning The Open: How We Did It (Mainstream Sport)

How did Paul Lawrie decide on the shot that won the 1999 Open at Carnoustie? Who provided the calming influence for "Wild Thing" John Daly at St Andrews in 1995? What did Greg Norman learn from his right-hand-man in 1986 which helped him lift the Claret Jug in 1993? How do you cope with Seve Ballesteros's fiery temperament well enough to help him to three Opens? What is it like being a woman caddie in a man's world? The answers are all here in this selection of untold stories from the Open Championships, related by the caddies who played their part in the winning of the Auld Claret Jug. Fanny Sunesson talks about winning with Nick Faldo at the "Home of Golf", Nick Price gives a touching account of his 1994 victory with his devoted caddie, the late "Squeeky" Medlen, and three different caddies tell of their contributions to Seve Ballesteros' three Open titles.

About the Author:

Norman Dabell writes regularly on golf in the Daily and Sunday Telegraph, The Independent, Daily Mail, Observer, The Times and Sunday Times. He is a former deputy editor of Golf Illustrated and lives in Grantham, Lincolnshire.


'The efforts of caddies remain largely unsung but it is obvious from Norman Dabell's fascinating How We Did It that no player can win a major championship unless there is a bond between himself and his caddie...a remarkable insight into what goes on in the minds of top players in the closing stages of the most famous major golf championship of them all, the British Open.' Sunday Times, 25 June 2000; 'Dabell, who has written a similar book on Ryder Cup matches, has produced another stiff one-iron to the heart of the game. He has wisely stood back and let the caddies tell their tale.' The Herald, 15 July 2000
