Synopsis: Michael Bamberger has been writing about golf for Golf Digest and The Philadelphia Inquirer for over twenty years, and for the past ten years has been a senior writer for Sports Illustrated. He has also lived the game as few others have -- from his experience as one of the first white, college-educated caddies in 1985, to hanging out with Arnold Palmer at this yearís Masters. This Golfing Life brings together Bambergerís acclaimed, intimate profiles of stars such as Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, and John Daly, as well as the behind-the scenes people who make the game what it is: In his last round of golf before an amputation, Bamberger's high school golf coach John Sifaneck makes his first hole-in-one; Bob Rubin, a Wall Street master-of-the-universe, builds his own golf course -- one so difficult he canít break 100 on it; Howdy Giles, Arnold Palmerís dentist, has ball markers made from Palmerís old fillings; Bruce Edwards continues to caddie for Tom Watson while dying of ALS (Lou Gehrigís disease). Bamberger interweaves these stories with his own life in a way that will remind golfers why they love the game.
