This is another paragraph Product Description: Nick Faldo, the greatest British golfer of all time, has always held a certain fascination. What makes this complex man tick? What has driven him to his remarkable success? Does a champion golfer have to be a loner? What sacrifices has he had to make to reach the top? All of these intriguing questions are addressed in detail in Driven. n nFor the majority of his long golf career, Faldo has been branded as one of the coldest men in British sport - at times better known for being distant, arrogant, and wrapped up in himself than for winning three Open Championships and three US Masters. Indeed, the victories seemed only to cultivate the image of him as a socially inept, mechanical player, a 'vivisector of golf courses'. Faldo's life, both on and off the golf course, often reads like a Hollywood film script. So far, an uneasy relationship with the media has meant that we know very little indeed about Nick Faldo, the man. But those close to him have no shared their thoughts and experiences assisting author Dale Concannon to produce a fascinating insight into a unique sportsman. n nClearly, the quest for perfection has taken its toll. From the exhilarating highs of golf superstardom to the shattering lows of failed marriages and inexplicable losses in form, Driven analyses exactly what motivates this seemingly inscrutable man.
